Thanksgiving Floral Arrangement Tips
Follow these tips whether you’re creating your own fresh Thanksgiving floral centerpieces or selecting a lifelike fall flower arrangement
Consider Your Display Area
It’s essential to scale the size of your Thanksgiving flower arrangement to your intended display area so your décor doesn’t overwhelm the space. Try smaller or more compact Thanksgiving centerpiece flowers for sideboards, consoles, or coffee tables. Alfresco areas and formal Thanksgiving dinner table setups can afford a more exuberant display.
Choose Your Flower Varieties and Color Palette
Choosing flowers for your Thanksgiving table is a matter of personal style and preference while factoring in what’s traditional and in-season. Roses, sunflowers, mums, and dahlias are popular choices in various hues. Mix your flower arrangement with other details in your Thanksgiving table setting or décor for a cohesive look. For example, an arrangement featuring yellow and orange blooms will pick up the rustic browns of wooden accents and the gleam of gold cutlery.
Select the Right Vessel
Your vase or container’s look will contribute to the overall aesthetic of your Thanksgiving décor. Baskets, galvanized buckets, or wooden vessels impart a more classic or traditional feel. Meanwhile, glass, crystal, or metallic vases suit modern Thanksgiving floral arrangements.
Add Seasonal Accents
Create unique Thanksgiving flower arrangements by incorporating natural accents and little nods to the fall season. Acorns, small apples, mini gourds, and other harvest season touches add character to your floral display.
Complement Other Foliage on Display
For a seamless and intentional display, mimic similar details from your fall wreaths and garlands on display around the home. Incorporate similar foliage, accents, or match the same color palette.
