Thanksgiving Flowers

Thanksgiving is almost here!  That means it’s time for pumpkin pie, turkey, and all those other great holiday treats.  However, before you start eating, you’ve got to be sure you’ve got everything you need for the holiday, and that includes a wonderful bouquet of Thanksgiving flowers to grace your table.

There are several different types of Thanksgiving arrangements, and the one that works best for your table depends on the size of the table, how much food you plan on serving, and on if you have other places to put your flowers during the meal.  If you have a small table or a lot of dishes, you’ll either need a small arrangement or you’ll need to move the arrangement off the table during dinner.  That might be a problem if you don’t have another place to put the flowers.

So once you’ve decided on a large or small arrangement, it’s time to look at containers.  You can select a traditional vase, a non-traditional vase (such as a square one), or no vase at all.  If you’re going for a large spread, you won’t necessarily have it in a vase.  It may come in a basket, for example.  One of the more traditional Thanksgiving arrangements is the cornucopia.  These horns can hold flowers, greenery, acorns, and much more.

Once you’ve got your container selected, pick out your flowers.  If you’re ordering a pre-made arrangement, this is done.  If you’re having one created, you will want to look at flowers in fall colors, like orange, yellow, and red.  Your florist can help you select great fall flowers that are fresh and in stock.

Now, what about accessories?  Some floral arrangements don’t need anything else, and some come with taper candles.  You can, however, add your own candles to the arrangement.  You might also want to put a few small gourds or pumpkins on the table.  Many places sell little pilgrim or turkey figurines that also look nice.

So there you go!  Your Thanksgiving flowers are all set!  If you haven’t ordered yours yet, there’s still time.  Just head over to the Village Gardens website and select one of our great arrangements.
