Have you heard about Friendsgiving? If not, allow us to be the first to clue you in. This is where you spend Thanksgiving (or some time around it) hosting a gathering for friends, co-workers, teachers and neighbors who may not all be able to make it to celebrate with their families this holiday. As the host, it’s your job to create a convivial atmosphere, but you may not be solely responsible for the dinner. You can frame this as a potluck, or even order in. The point is, you’re brought together to celebrate the season of coming together, expressing your good fortune, and taking part in a delicious meal that everyone helped create. And just like a traditional Thanksgiving, flowers are often at the heart of the table.
We love the idea of Friendsgiving, which really blends both new and old traditions. A friendly, welcoming floral design like Autumn Gerbera Daisies is the perfect addition to a table full of important people. It communicates a warm, casual feel but it also hews to the classic Fall color scheme, with some silk leaves mixed in.
No matter what you’re doing for Thanksgiving, leave room for flowers. There’s nothing like them to unify a room or to create a festive atmosphere.
