So you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year. Lucky you. We at Adrian Durban Florist envy your position and wish we could host a thousand Thanksgivings.
No, we’re not kidding.
Why are you so lucky? Because of the flowers, of course. If you like fresh blooms and love designing a room around them (or in conjunction with them), then Thanksgiving is like your dream holiday. So many richly-hued arrangements await, so many textures and scents, so many rustic baskets and cornucopias. You get to find that one showstopper piece to place on your table as you harvest up your home for your guests. And then eat. We have some ideas for the flowers (we’ll leave the eating to you).
Flowers have the ability to set a mood and to suggest the tone of an occasion. They can also pull together a color palette, introduce texture and lift the spirit. They always feel festive and special, but never more so than when you give them a starring role in your biggest feast of the year, Thanksgiving.
If your table is on the more traditional side, we love an arrangement of orchids, lilies, gerberas, berries and foliage that encircles a candle, as our Harvest Hurricane does. This is a truly 360 degree piece, and it also solves the problem of where to place your candles relative to your centerpiece by making them both one and the same.
Chances are, you’ve decorated with a cornucopia or two in your day. May we offer a more modern take? Our fetching Fall Cornucopia Bouquet has rosemary, sunflowers, kale, berries and more spilling forth. This interpretation feels fresh, pulling straight from the garden and keeping the colors light and bright.
Whichever centerpiece you choose, have a good time with it. Flowers should be one of the fun parts of Thanksgiving, and Adrian Durban Florist is happy to show you that’s the case.
