Creating Custom Thanksgiving Centerpieces with Our Design Center

Thanksgiving is getting closer. In fact, it’s Thursday, November 23rd. While it’s fast approaching, there is still time to do something extra special during this traditional family celebration. Rather than just ordering a Thanksgiving centerpiece, why not work with our design center at our Columbus flower shops on a custom Thanksgiving centerpiece as well as custom flower arrangements for the home and buffet table?

Our Thanksgiving collection does have some beautiful floral designs f5that will add a special touch to your holiday plans. However, even more memorable is to create something no one else will have and that defines your home and family traditions. In fact, your custom Thanksgiving centerpiece can use a container and personal elements that you can include. For example, you may have a family vase or large bowl that could add something memorable to the display.

When you create a custom Thanksgiving centerpiece, there really is no parameters on what you can make except your own imagination. Think about what styles you like. Do you have a house that is bit more country and rustic, formal and traditional, or modern? Use this as your inspiration. Then, there are favorite flowers and colors. f3

What type of accents do you like that represent the fall season? You can include oak leaves, acorns, gourds (small ones and larger ones like pumpkins), turkeys, branches, and wheat.

f6Table size and shape is also important to think about. You don’t want the centerpiece to take up the whole table and block viewing. However, you don’t want your Thanksgiving centerpiece to be small or the wrong shape so that it takes away from the ambiance. Create one that is a similar shape of your table and is balanced in size and scope. Be sure to give our floral design team the dimensions of the table.

All these factors are important to figure out before you come in and work with our floral design team. They can come up with a design idea much more quickly and be inspired to do exactly what you are imagining. f4

Now is the time to make your appointment for that custom Thanksgiving centerpiece as well as other custom flower arrangements that can be added throughout the house, including the mantle, stairs, door and other tables. All of these floral displays for Thanksgiving will welcome your guests and create a very festive spirit.

Thanksgiving Flowers and Centerpieces Enhance the Family Experience

f4This year, Thanksgiving is on Thursday, November 23rd. There are just a few short weeks to get everything ready for this special occasion. This is where you get to spend great times with family and friends, sharing what you are grateful for. We are grateful for our customers so we want to help all of you get ready for Thanksgiving.

Our collection for Thanksgiving includes flower arrangements, bouquets, and centerpieces that you can pick-up or have delivered throughout the Columbus area. We also can send flowers on your behalf anywhere in the country if you can’t be together this Thanksgiving. Here are some ideas for decor, the table, and gift giving this Thanksgiving:f1

First, we have many types of centerpieces for Thanksgiving.

The Family Gatherings Centerpiece has two orange taper candles surrounded by fall flowers. Then, the Harvest Happiness Centerpiece provides a stunning array of fall flowers, greenery, and accents. Autumn Expressions includes Fuji mums, miniature roses, carnations, daisies and fall leaves. Harvest Glow has fuji mums, carnations, daisies and miniature roses. Finally, Nature’s Landscape, which is made for larger tables, comes in a wooden box and contains sunflowers, roses, calla lilies, snapdragons, anemones, and hydrangea.

Many of our Thanksgiving items make great gifts for local Thanksgiving celebrations here in Columbus. Those items for local delivery include the Pumpkin Spice Cupcake. This delight is made locally by Just A Little Treat. It is a spiced pumpkin cake that has been topped with cinnamon pumpkin buttercream frosting and a dusting of raw sugar.f2

Then, there is Cheryl’s Cookies, another delicious local brand. They offer Pumpkins and Leaves Cutout Cookies. You’ll get one dozen individually wrapped buttercream frosted leaf and pumpkin cut-out cookies that come in a fall colored gift bag.

While this looks good enough to eat, you won’t want to. Instead, light this Apple Pie Candle to create a comforting feeling for a chilly Thanksgiving Day. The hand-poured candle is made by Beaver Creek Candle Company in Lisbon, Ohio It’s a 9″ pie that arrives packaged in an actual clear pie box. It also smells like it just came from the oven.

Remember that you can order for Thanksgiving today so you can check that task right off your long to-do list! Come into our Columbus flower shops, call us, or go online right now!
