It’s not hard for a table to look good on Thanksgiving. A beautiful tablecloth, fine china, polished silverware – and that’s to say nothing of the feast itself. Even if your table is less formal, there’s nothing quite like the set-up for a glorious meal with family and friends. You may have a fire going in the background or the TV parked on football; either way, you’re likely to be looking at a pretty table.
Here at Griffin’s Floral Design, we don’t want you to overlook one of the prettiest items on it: the centerpiece.
These days, we’re photographing everything, from landscapes to selfies to a gorgeous plate of food. We say that your Thanksgiving centerpiece should have your guests pulling out their phones and pointing it toward the heart of the table. Holiday centerpieces capture the essence of your time together, providing atmosphere and setting the tone. We love our Harvest Centerpiece for just this reason. Bold sunflowers, daises, sprigs of wheat and millet and berries are a rustic, charming addition to your table.
Centerpieces look great when some tasteful decor is added, and in the case of our Fruitful Fall Centerpiece, that addition is apples. Dahlias, lilies and hydrangea look fresh and modern, but work that Fall color palette to best advantage. Two tapers rise up over this bundle, ready to cast a glow on your table.
There are so many options for Thanksgiving centerpieces these days, from a traditional extended splay of flowers at the heart of the table to smaller arrangements placed in a series down it. Don’t be afraid to try something new this year, introducing an unusual flower or shape to your scheme. Go for rich texture and plenty of Fall color, and then watch as your guests get out their phones to snap a pic.
