Columbus Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot
This race has been a Thanksgiving Day family tradition for 28 years. This year, it’s scheduled for Thursday, November 24th and is hosted by the Shops on Lane Avenue. Last year, over 7,600 people participated in this event that has been selected by Runners World Magazine as the best Hometown Favorite Race.

There are two distances to choose from, including a five-mile race and a two-mile “Walk ‘N Talk” race at Waterman Farm at OSU. As part of entering these races, each participant receives a long sleeve shirt, medal, chip timing and goody bag. Every participant will also receive a Whole Foods pumpkin pie!f6

Additionally, kids can get in on all the fun with the Kids Tot Trot 100-yard dash, which is free to children of registered parents and guardians. Kids get a treat, t-shirt, and ribbon for participating.

The proceeds from the event go to Easterseals and their Early Intervention Program, which provides support to help children with special challenges, disabilities, or needs so they can reach their full potential.

Flying Feather Four Miler
Located in Dublin, Ohio at the Club at Corazon, the Flying Feather Four Miler is all about fitness, family, fun and food! The race kicks off at 9am and benefits the Second and Seven Foundation, which receives all the proceeds from the special holiday event. You can also purchase special race leggings, which also contributes to this organization.

Thanksgiving Wattle
Another event that is sure to burn that pumpkin pie off is the Thanksgiving Wattle. The Morning 5K run/walk starts at 9am on Lamplighter Drive in Grove City. The children’s run offers a 100-yard run and a 400-yard run, kicking off at 8:30am and involving a great chase after some turkey mascots.

Thanksgiving Flowers Set the Table for a Beautiful Feast

f2Thanksgiving is that special time of year where we stop and reflect on what we are truly thankful in our lives.

We don’t often think about the fact that we really should be thankful for happiness, health, friendship, and the love and support of our families.

However, this is when we sit down together and enjoy a feast that represents the place we are in our lives.f3

It’s a time to laugh and share stories as well as just enjoy each other. f4

It’s also a reminder that another year has nearly past, which gives us thought on how we can make the coming year even more thankful.f5

At Flowerama Columbus, our staff at all four of our Columbus flower shop locations is ready to help you set your Thanksgiving table and decorate your home or office.

We also have great Thanksgiving gift ideas for the Thanksgiving host you may want to thank for their hospitality or for the person that may not be able to attend this year’s Thanksgivingf6 festivities.

Here are some highlights from our Thanksgiving collection, which includes Thanksgiving centerpieces and Thanksgiving flower arrangements:
• Nature’s Landscape is perfect for a large table. The wooden box is filled with roses, calla lilies, anemones, hydrangea, sunflowers and hydrangea.
• Classic Fall Lantern is a Thanksgiving centerpiece with a lantern surrounded by broomcorn, waxflower, greenery, roses, protea, hydrangea and sunflowers.
• Autumn Expressions has Fuji mums, carnations, miniatures roses, daisies and fall leaves.
• Fall Frolic features sunflowers, Queen Anne’s lace, football mums, calla lilies, dusty miller and broomcorn in a compote-style vase.
• Somethin’ Pumpkin is a ceramic pumpkin filled with autumn flowers and leaves, creating a great Thanksgiving decoration.

Cheryl’s Cookies offers up delicious Thanksgiving treats this year with a range of buttercream frosted fall cookies, including pumpkin and leaf cut-out cookies. This is a delicious gift or addition to your Thanksgiving meal. f1

You can order by phone, in our Columbus flower shops, or online through our website. Deliveries will be through Wednesday, November 23rd in the evening. However, we will close our Columbus florist locations on Thursday, November 24th so our staff can enjoy the day with their friends and family.

Don’t forget to put us on your list for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday though! We are ready to go for the holiday shopping season and can’t wait to share our holiday collection of flowers and gifts with you!

Veteran’s Day and World Kindness Day in Columbus

F3Veteran’s Day is November 11th and is an opportunity to thank all of our local veterans in Columbus, Ohio as well as recognize all the courageous men and women across the country that have fought for our freedom across all wars, conflicts, and battles.

Here, in Columbus, we have a number of Veteran’s Day events that help us recognize these amazing people.

The biggest event is the Columbus Veteran’s Day Ceremony and Parade. This year’s event will take place on Thursday, November 10th at 10:30am in the City Council Chambers.

The parade will start at noon, kicking off from Nationwide Boulevard and High Street. F4

Numerous restaurants will also be offering deals and free meals to military with proof an ID.

Another important upcoming observance is World Kindness Day on November 13th, which also reminds us to stop and think of what others have done for us so we too should also extend the same amount of thoughtful, kind behavior.

We are a great spot to celebrate both special days with beautiful patriotic flowers and fall flowers that show your thoughtfulness for others. F2

For patriotic flower arrangements, we have a number of red, white, and blue flower arrangement options that come in vases and urns as well as sprays and wreaths for all types of gifts and events.

Additionally, we have a wide range of flower arrangements and bouquets that are designed to recognize the idea of kindness.

The options include many cheerful floral displays in everything from cubes and vases to baskets. You can select from a wide array of flower varieties and colors as well as sizes that fit your budget, including those from our fall flower collection.

Stop by any of our Columbus flower shops to check out our selection. You can also place orders for local and national delivery by phone or through our website. F1
