Thanksgiving Floral Tablescapes November 17, 2010

Do you have a large area in your home or outdoor entertainment area where you would like decor for Thanksgiving? Ask your florist to create a large focal piece, and then gather gourds, pumpkins and fall leaves to create a tablescape.

Think about adding candles, keepsake items or decor from your travels that is meaningful to you as well. Or ask each guest to bring something to add to the tablescape for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Did you know you can ask for more than florals to be included in your arrangement? Vegetables, such as artichokes, kale, turnips, brussel sprouts and many others are wonderful when paired with flowers. Or pears, pomegranates, apples, and other fall fruits. Herbs of all kinds lend themselves well to a harvest feel.

And here in Phoenix, we miss the fall colors of the leaves, so ask for fresh or dried fall leaves to be added in also. The ones pictured here are provided to us by Moss’s Unlimited, who practices sustainable harvesting in the forests of Oregon.

Celebrate what is important to you as you give thanks. Invite others into the process by bringing something of value to add to the tablescape. Celebrate life and all the riches we have with a grateful heart this Thanksgiving.
