A Graceful Table for Thanksgiving

What’s the most important thing you’ll have on your Thanksgiving table?

If you said, “turkey,” okay, we can’t disagree. But we at Boyd’s Flowers think there’s also something else – something that has nothing to do with food – that’s equally worthy of your attention. And that item is your table’s centerpiece.

Deciding what flowers will grace your holiday table is a fun dilemma that gives you a break from meal planning and prep. Your centerpiece flowers help establish the mood of your Thanksgiving, whether that’s formal and fancy or a down home potluck. Even if you’ve styled your dinner as a buffet, you’ll want to bring some life to the tables through flowers and other decor. We’re here to help with that.

A traditional display like our Modern Grace works well at a large dining table. A lavish collection of blooms spills forth from a bed of greens, with a little height to balance the scale. With a statement centerpiece like this, you need little else adorning the table, having captured the Thanksgiving sentiment in one fell swoop.

If you’re hosting a more casual affair, we love our Pumpkin Pie Wishes in a trio down the table. A more modern approach to the centerpiece, a sequence of smaller bouquets saves space and gives everyone something special to look at. This would also work well on buffet tables, one per each.

Set out all your serve ware and place settings before selecting a centerpiece item (or items) to determine just how much space you have to play with. Then, when you’re ready to have fun picking out your perfect flowers, give us at Boyd’s a call.
