It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner, but the annual day of gratitude is rapidly approaching. Whether you’re hosting guests for dinner or visiting family for the celebration, you’ll need flowers to decorate your table or give as a gift. Luckily, there are so many autumnal blooms that work perfectly for Thanksgiving flower arrangements in 77084.
Think outside the vase
When it comes to making your own Thanksgiving flower arrangements in 77084, consider unique alternatives to the traditional vase. Of course, most Thanksgiving tables have a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty as a centerpiece, but if you’re bored with this holiday standard, try something new and exciting.
For example, a galvanized metal bucket with some raffia tied around it adds rustic charm to your arrangement. You can also try arranging flowers in a faux pumpkin container or a hollowed-out real pumpkin. Various gourds can quickly become one-of-a-kind vases by cutting off the top and scooping out the innards.
A bowl of fruit becomes a charming place to arrange smaller flowers and plants as a centerpiece or arrangement. Citrus elements bring a bright, fresh and unexpected essence to your arrangement.
For those hosting Thanksgiving dinner in their homes, individual bud vases at each place setting stand out from the expected large table centerpiece. With lots of bud vases on the table, you can play around with different flowers and other accents.
Also, keep in mind that flower arrangements aren’t just for your dining room table. Consider other places throughout your home where fresh flowers would add a nice holiday touch to the space, such as coffee tables, fireplace mantels and entryways.
Fall flowers for your Thanksgiving floral arrangement
Once you’ve decided on the vessel(s) you’ll use for your holiday arrangement, it’s time to pick the flowers. Many people assume the most beautiful flowers only bloom during the spring and summer. However, autumn offers a variety of flora to populate your arrangements, such as sunflowers, marigolds, chrysanthemums, asters, pansies, violas, black-eyed Susans and dianthus.
Often, people assume floral arrangements should only include flowers. However, there are other accent plants you can include that make the arrangement pop. Seasonal plants to add to your Thanksgiving floral arrangement include ornamental peppers, flowering kale/cabbage, lavender, croton, purple fountain grass, cattails, eucalyptus or berry branches. Fresh herbs like mint, rosemary, pineapple sage and thyme add delicious scents to your arrangements, too.
Creating your Thanksgiving floral arrangement
As you gather the flowers and other pieces you’ll use for your holiday floral arrangement, consider how you’re going to arrange them in the vase, bucket, pumpkin, etc. Try an arrangement that includes monochromatic shades. Experiment with height as you set up your flowers, pairing tall plants with one another and shorter ones in a different vessel.
