Thanksgiving Flowers

Posted on November 23, 2010

Thanksgiving flower arrangements can create the perfect holiday ambience for your table. The soft glow of tapered candles…the enticing aroma of good food…the happy sounds of family and the gentle scent of fresh cut flower arrangements all combine to satisfy the senses. When choosing flowers for Thanksgiving, you’ll naturally want to select a color palette that reflects the warm colors of the season with lots of rust, pumpkin and gold.

Your Thanksgiving arrangement will set center stage for a lovely and bountiful celebration, filled with an ambience that only the holidays can bring.

Send Thanksgiving Flowers

If you are unable to be with someone special this holiday season, why not send Thanksgiving flowers instead? Your recipients will appreciate the kindness of your gift and the beauty you’ve contributed to their table, even long after the day has passed.  Show those important to you that they’re never far from your thoughts with a centerpiece reflecting the autumnal seasonal flower colors unique to Thanksgiving: harvest gold, warm shades of burnt orange, mixed with pops of vibrant red. Nothing else says, “I’m thinking of you” quite as effectively!

Arrangements including items found in nature are very popular in Thanksgiving arrangements, including pine cones, acorns and delicate branches. Mixing these together with ribbons in complimentary colors creates a stunning centerpiece. Consider fall flower arrangements filled with roses, hydrangea, lilies and berries…all in the sunlit tones of autumn.  If your table is abundant with food and drink, consider a raised arrangement, to save on precious space and add height and dimension to your holiday table. It’s a great way to add the beauty and elegance of a floral arrangement without overshadowing your culinary efforts in the kitchen. The colors naturally found in autumn are some of the most vibrant found in nature…so it’s not surprising that an arrangement featuring these shades would create a visual explosion of color to delight the senses. Sprinkling some cranberries around the base of your arrangement, or even in the vase itself to cover the view of stems in a clear glass container, can be an excellent way to tie in the natural colors of the season. Flowers for Thanksgiving include yellow and white roses, gold daffodils, acorns and green accents All in all, a Thanksgiving arrangement is one of the “must-haves” for your table this holiday season. It’s the perfect complement to a meal created with one of the best ingredients: love. Happy Holiday!
