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.
As a florist in Austin, I have a good variety of customers, but a lot of them want the same things when it comes to seasonal flower arrangements. Below I will list a number of great options and tips for seasonal display.
- Berries – add them in for texture and interest
- Fall foliage – brings in outdoors in and burst of color
- Fruit and Vegetable – apples, mini pumpkins and baby squash are the perfect addition to any arrangement
