The centerpiece on a Thanksgiving table is one of those moments where you can bring in inspiration from nature and family traditions together.

Thanksgiving has always held a special place in my heart, a time where traditions come alive and I value the time I have with my family. Traditionally my family and I have a Thanksgiving feast at my grandparent’s house where in a collaborative spirit, was all bring a dish to share that compliments the main dishes that my grandmother cooks up. This year I am in charge of all things pie related which is one of my favorite aspects as I tend to go all out with multiple flavors and include pie art to the final presentation of my pies. And flowers, I am also bringing the Thanksgiving flowers. With delicious foods to share such as turkey and gravy, mashed potatoes, salads and more this kicks off the great conversations that take place around the table for Thanksgiving. A humbling moment where you find yourself thankful for so many things in not only your life but your friends and families lives.
For some families it can be a challenge to gather everyone together as we have to pick and choose which side of the family we spend the day with or how to travel to gathering point. If you find yourself choosing between families, you can send something special to the family that you don’t get a chance to visit with. Sending a fresh bouquet of Thanksgiving flowers is a perfect way to show your spirit is there. We recommend our Thanksgiving Bouquet, a bouquet that captures the fall essence in colors of yellow, orange, and red tones. This bouquet features Gerbera Daisies, fresh Lilies that are complimented by the gorgeous seasonal greenery as our Autumn Bouquet. It’s a way of sharing your love with your family even if you can’t physically be there.
If you are someone who find themselves flying out to visit your family and want to have a special treat for the occasion, you can send Thanksgiving flowers to their address to be delivered the day before as a perfect gift to kick off the holiday. We take the fuss out of traveling with gifts by sending them straight to where they are needed so upon arrival to your family and you can enjoy the beautiful autumnal bouquet.
If you are looking for a way to engage conversations at the table, take turns going around the table to share something you are thankful for in this past year. Its amazing to hear some thoughtful appreciation from family.
Happy Thanksgiving from the Flowerbud team!
