Planning a Friendsgiving this year? Are you one of those lucky people who are doing both a regular Thanksgiving and a friends version?
If so, this is the post for you. We’re talking about putting a modern twist on the classic Thanksgiving table. From doing an international potluck to having the entire thing catered, the modern Thanksgiving table has been liberated from simple stuffing and green beans. Today, we’re welcoming all kinds of new dishes and traditions to the table, and Central Square Florist has just the flowers for it.
Whether you’re having a casual gathering or a very pulled-together affair, Thanksgiving tables usually have flowers at their heart. This needn’t be a floral cornucopia or a piece full of rustic browns and reds; instead, keep things bright and contemporary with something like Ultimate Autumn, which marries uplifting purple with citron, green and red. The look is seasonal but not heavy.
Striking flowers and a container full of rocks create a lot of interest, but this is also one of those pieces that won’t take up too much room. Consider how much you’ll have on your Thanksgiving table, not just food but the serveware it’s in, drinking and wine glasses, pitchers, platters, salad bowls and more. Lay out your place settings and all of the items you’ll be using ahead of time so that you can envision how it will all work. If you do this, you’ll ensure that you have plenty of space leftover for important pieces like flowers and the surprise dish your aunt brings over.
Whatever kind of Thanksgiving you’re having, top it off with flowers.
