Elegant Thanksgiving Tabletops

There is an elegance to the Thanksgiving holiday that Thanksgiving Decorations warms our hearts, reminds us to be kinder to one another, and celebrates the beauty of fall. We often take our cues from nature when thinking about our Thanksgiving tabletops, mixing autumn botanicals with flowers in vibrant harvest hues.

This year, highlight the elegance of the holiday by talking to your local florist about creating Thanksgiving arrangements that combine seasonal classics, such as wheat stems and acorns, with white florals like roses and calla lilies to add sophistication and style to the tabletops in every room of your home.
Wheat Stems and Calla Lilies for the Foyer

Give your family and friends a festive welcome by going grand in the entryway or on a fireplace mantle by showcasing a tall centerpiece of wheat stems interspersed with long-stemmed white flowers such as calla lilies or gladiolas. Since this is a table or surface that is primarily for display, surround the vase with nuts in their shells and white pumpkins.

Pumpkins and Roses for the Dinner Table

For the dinner table, ask for a low arrangement so guests can easily chat across the table with an unobstructed view of each other. Given that the table will be abundant with food, consider a container that is a space-saver, such as a slender wooden wine box artistically filled with white roses and miniature pumpkins. Add a sense of whimsy to the arrangement with longer stems of mini calla lilies and pheasant feathers.

Round out the table design by placing an autumn leaf topped with a white rose on each guest’s plate. You can personalize each place-setting by writing each person’s name on the leaf using a gold metallic pen.

Thanksgiving Decorations

Look around your home and think about how you can echo the theme of your main holiday flower arrangements in other places, such as the living room coffee table or even white flowers in a miniature white pumpkin to freshen up the powder room.

Surround your guests and you in floral beauty and harvest bounty this Thanksgiving for a memorable holiday.

Last Minute Thanksgiving Flowers


Turkey? Check! Cranberries? Yep. Pumpkin Pie? Ready to serve with whipped cream. So what’s left? Oh no! There are no Thanksgiving flowers to put on the table! If you need some last minute thanksgiving flowers, it’s not too late. While you probably don’t want to wait until the day before to go turkey shopping, if you forget your flowers, you might still be able to pick some up.

If you’re shopping for last minute Thanksgiving flowers, there are a few things to be aware of. First of all, your florist, no matter how good they are, may be out of your first choice. Popular arrangements tend to sell out quickly. Cornucopias and large arrangements may already be gone. However, this doesn’t mean your dinner is ruined. Many florists also have a number of smaller arrangements that they can make for Thanksgiving.

Even if your florist is out of some of their advertised arrangements, that doesn’t have to put a damper on your plans. Any good, creative florist can take what flowers they have in stock and create something completely beautiful and amazing. Just tell your florist what you’re looking for, and he or she will work magic. There are many different flowers that work for Thanksgiving, after all. Sunflowers, orange and dark red roses, yellow and orange gerberas, orange lilies, and many other flowers will fit nicely with your Thanksgiving décor. Greenery, acorns, pinecones, and even some gourds and pumpkins can be added if you feel like your arrangement needs a bit of fleshing out. Throw in a few candles, and you’re done!

It’s always advisable to order your Thanksgiving flowers in advance, of course, but even if you don’t, it’s OK. Just be sure to pick them up as soon as possible so you’ve got some options. As always, we have a great selection of Thanksgiving flowers. Browse them now on our website and place your order soon!
