Flowers for Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving flower arrangements capture the true spirit of the holiday and are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the occasion with beautiful fall flowers.
They can be a gift to someone to be delivered for you anywhere in Canada, a bouquet for the dinner hostess or a treat for yourself. It is a lovely gesture, setting the mood for a special festive dinner, creating special memories for family and guests.
Thanksgiving floral themes offer a wide range of options, from the traditional candle table centre piece for the dining table, oblong or round. Baskets, low containers, wheat, cattails, lotus pods add a nice traditional fall touch to the design. Of course the floral designs are not just for the dining room table. There are also less traditional alternatives, in the very popular vase and glass cube look. You can choose from an elegant to a more natural, rustic look – best suited for the recipient’s taste.
Fall colors tend to be warm, rich jewel tone colors
REDS, ORANGES, YELLOWS, GOLD, along with BURGUNDIES and PURPLE shades.
CANADIAN THANKSGIVING – THE SECOND MONDAY OF OCTOBER
It always falls on the second Monday of October and is celebrated as a national holiday to enable Canadians to celebrate the harvest and other blessings of the past year. This is becoming more important as we are putting more emphasis on ‘locally grown’ fruit, vegetables, grains and flowers. Proudly Canadian agricultural products – a mainstay of our country.
