Decorate Your Thanksgiving Table with Flowers and Plants
When you think about Thanksgiving, food, specifically turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries and all the rest of what is a traditional holiday dinner is likely one of the first things that comes to mind.
While all that yummy food definitely makes for an enticing table, another way to add to the atmosphere and festivities is an eye-catching centerpiece.
There are all sorts of centerpieces, many featuring candles, fruits, pine cones and baskets – and maybe even a fold-out paper turkey or pilgrim (now come on, you know you’ve seen those) – but the most beautiful ones by far consist mostly of seasonal flowers, plants and other greenery.
Gorgeous, bright and fresh, fall flower arrangements are the foundation to any beautifully set Thanksgiving table. Magnificent dark reds, oranges and yellows – and maybe even some deep purples – along with some amazing greenery, can set the mood for the festive occasion. Simple, elegant and aromatic, flowers can set the tone not just for the meal but also for the day of Thanksgiving.
While there are a slew of flowers to choose from, among the most popular and traditional flowers and plants for a Thanksgiving centerpiece is the mum, which comes in a bunch of vibrant and different colors, along with lilies, sunflowers, asters and marigolds.
Fall leaves, greenery branches, and select ones such as Nandina, Holly, Magnolia are great selections to consider. Also, pine cones, acorns and cereal spikelets, combined with the flowers of your choice in the correct hues for the season, will give you a gorgeous. A large array of foliage types can be acquired from one’s landscape or gardens and the imagination can just explode with ideas of floral, color, and texture to adorn those Thanksgiving table decorations that will make all that wonderful food taste even better!
