The first ever Thanksgiving was celebrated by the Pilgrims (who sailed from England to North America on the Mayflower) and the Native Americans. Today the celebration includes not only plenty of food and drink, but also an abundance of flowers.
Flowers, with their undeniable power to transform any mood and any room, are widely exchanged, couriered, and used for decoration on Thanksgiving. Usually they are set as the centerpiece on the dining table, but if one wants to fill the table with more food or if the table isn’t big enough, then the flowers can be hung from the walls, set on a sideboard, or on occasional tables. A large floor vase filled with bright blooms at the front door is especially welcoming. Choosing the right kind of flowers for your Thanksgiving party can be intimidating; after all, there are so many beautiful flowers in an abundance of colors.
Since Thanksgiving is an autumn celebration, it’s a good idea to pick flowers whose colors reflect the season. Carnations, chrysanthemums, daylilies, snapdragons, tigerlilies, and sunflowers are all vibrant hues of orange, red, and yellow. They brighten up your home and add warmth to the festive foods and fruits you will be serving at your feast.
A good flower delivery service can help you find out whether the flowers you want are available or not – some hothouse or exotic specialists can get your chosen blooms even though they may not be in season where you live. After that, it’s simply a matter of placing your order!
