Get Everything Out Of The Fall Holidays With Seasonal Flower Arrangements

Thanksgiving Centerpiece by Texas Blooms

Thanksgiving is a great holiday because of the food, the family, the festivities — and the flowers. No autumn feast is totally complete without a Thanksgiving centerpiece! Having a beautiful cut flower decoration or decorations can really spruce up the family table and make this year’s holiday memorable, whilst adding artistic quality.

 

There are a lot of things to consider when arranging seasonal flower arrangements. One of these is size. In general I like to make slimmer bouquets that are both elegant, vibrant, and spatially conservative; but for Thanksgiving, my philosophy changes. While you can never go wrong with a few small flowers, Thanksgiving presents a lot of images implying plentitude. The cornucopia, huge portions of food — the overall huge feast, a bigger bird than you would normally cook even for a family. As such, I like to express this in my arrangements.
