A Covered Vase
Just when you thought you had weeks and weeks to plan your Thanksgiving table, it will be here before you know it. Just like Halloween, we feel like the holidays are fast approaching and we’re so not prepared. Our clients are getting their act together, though, judging by the record breaking week we just had on our online store.
A Pale Palette
While the old saying of the shoemaker’s children have no shoes does apply to us (i.e. the flower girls have no bouquets at home!), we’re going to make a big effort this year to have a beautiful Thanksgiving table. So we’re already gathering our fall floral favorites (thanks to Southern Lady magazine) in hopes that they will come in handy on the big day.
Orchids and Berries
Succulents in a Painted Box
Why use an every day glass vase when you can use a pumpkin or gourd? And why not mix in an unexpected element like succulents or orchid blossoms? We think a holiday centerpiece should wow the crowd and given that we’ll be sitting around the table for hours, it also needs to be pretty.
Pretty Pumpkin Posy
Something decorative at each place setting makes the guests feel special and we’re loving this idea of a persimmon and a place card. The fruit doubles as an appetizer if the meal is delayed!

Happy Friday to all and may your weekend be sweet.
Thanksgiving is just a week away and we know some of you have already planned your table settings down to the flowers… Well, not us! You would think that with the kind of business we’re in, that we’d be color coordinating our china to our centerpieces but we’re more concerned with the menu right now than we are with the decorations. That’s why we’ll most likely order our flowers from a local boutique and not try to do the arrangements ourselves. Then again, we can just borrow one of our faux designs from the studio and call it a day!
Thistle and Berries
Dahlias and Roses
Truth be told, we love fresh flowers on our dining room table and our local Trader Joe’s does a decent job with their seasonal mixes. But, if we lived in Manhattan, we’d be shopping at Petal Design Studio in the heart of the flower market. Corrente’s combinations of blooms are so refreshing and her use of unexpected textures such as thistles and berries make these bouquets the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving table. Even her color palettes are unusual yet pretty. It’s only too bad they won’t last through Christmas…
