As you’re planning your Thanksgiving table this year, Peoples Flower Shops is here with a small PSA: don’t forget the flowers!
You’ve likely pulled out the heritage linens and the nice china. Maybe you’ve even polished up your silverware and are prepping the turkey on an antique platter. We put so much time and attention into how our Thanksgiving table is going to look, given the bounty it will offer and the friends and family who will soon gather around it. A floral centerpiece at the heart of it is a way of bringing all of the elements that go into Thanksgiving together.
A variety of centerpiece types are available, each of them rich with those Fall colors we love so much. Some offer additional decor elements – sprigs of wheat or Fall leaves, for instance. And many come topped with taper candles, as our Autumn Home Centerpiece does.
This centerpiece cascades with eucalyptus over the table and pops with bright mums and other seasonal blooms. There’s a real sense of abundance to a centerpiece like this, which is exactly what you want to reference with your decor on Thanksgiving.
Something sleeker works, too. Our Waves of Grain makes a big impact, even though its scale is more diminutive. This is a piece that’s easy to work with – especially if you’re short on space. And because the flowers have a lot of texture and color, this design still feels robust. One added benefit is that this could be placed elsewhere after Thanksgiving dinner, or hold court on a side table during.
Have fun designing your Thanksgiving table this year, and come see us at Peoples Flowers Shops to see just how much variety there is when it comes to centerpieces.
