Thanksgiving is all about family, friends, and bringing back recipes like ambrosia salad and scalloped potatoes that have otherwise disappeared from the American palette. The other star of the table is the centerpiece. Of course, you can always stick with the usual – gourds and the color orange. Which is all well and good, but sometimes, even our oldest traditions need a bit of a refresh.
Celebrate with Succulents
Potted cacti and succulents make a southwestern style addition to any Thanksgiving spread. Grab a table runner and cover the cloth with a selection of desert plants in colorful pots – add a little fall flavor by incorporating some of the colorful mini gourds or white pumpkins for a nod to the holiday. The best part of using a succulent bouquet is that they will stick around for a while.
Keep it Simple
A traditional bouquet with nods to the fall season fits right in with any table setting. Go for the farmer’s picks if you want something seasonal, or choose from your favorite flowers on Pennock.com. We might be biased, but nothing beats a selection of fresh blooms.
Perhaps the most practical approach to the center piece, keeping things stylishly sparse means more room for the turkey, mashed potatoes, and a few extra bowls of gravy.
Still, a special occasion calls for special table settings. Choose one color and keep it simple when it comes to containers. You can’t go wrong with a basket arrangement in the traditional sense, it adds that country home feel that any table would want. Pennock Floral will deliver you Thanksgiving flowers in short order. Trust us; you won’t be disappointed this Thanksgiving season.
