The Best Flowers to Elevate Your Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving is easy to love. Bringing all of your loved ones together to eat, eat, and eat some more is hardly cause for complaint. Thanksgiving reminds families of what matters most and how to enjoy the simple things in the company of loved ones. It can also present a lovely opportunity for families to try new activities and get to know one another in fun, new ways. Here are some ideas we love that are sure to make this Thanksgiving a feast to remember. 

  • Get artsy together. If you find your home filling with guests before the turkey is out of the oven, give them something fun to do! Set out some drawing paper or poster boards, markers, stickers, clay, and any other craft materials you can dream up. The kids will stay busy, and if you’re lucky, adult guests will love a chance to use their creative minds before launching into the biggest meal of the year. 
  • Get some fresh air in your backyard. When was the last time you saw your family compete in a cornhole, bocce ball, or sack-racing game? Work up an appetite and get some fresh air with simple lawn games before you sit down to eat. You and your family will feel like you’ve earned your feast after some lighthearted competition and outdoor exercise. 
  • Leave the house for a hike or walk. Get your heart pumping on Thanksgiving Day and enjoy time with your entire family. Because of the holiday, local trails and walking areas will be far less busy than usual since so many people stay indoors all day on Thanksgiving.
  • Divide the cooking. Could Thanksgiving be a potluck? Why not! Take the pressure off by inviting your guests to show up with a dish. This way, everyone gets to contribute something, and the heavy lift of preparing a feast is distributed among many hands.
  • Create new traditions. After your meal, keep the family talking with a round of trivia, family feud, charades, or a traditional favorite you love.

No matter how you plan on spending Thanksgiving – or what you’re cooking up – make it an extra special event with a celebratory centerpiece. The talented floral artisans at Allen’s Flower Market have designed several gorgeous harvest-themed bouquets to add that extra special touch to your dining room table. Our Handful of Fall bouquet pairs fall-colored petals with some fuzzy proteas and rustic greens. Fall Flare is a great choice to create a warm atmosphere, with orange and bronze blossoms arranged artfully with tall, Autumnal candlesticks. For a bright variation on a traditional theme, consider our Give Thanks Cornucopia, which unites hydrangeas, orchids, gourds, and more in a woven cornucopia basket.
