What does the modern Thanksgiving table look like? On this holiday above all others, we embrace tradition. We set a timeless scene with heirloom linens and heritage china. On the other hand, Thanksgiving has been getting a bit of a reboot in the last few years, with holiday hosts mixing in some modern touches. Many people celebrate Friendsgiving, for instance, or have a more casual potluck. Still others are rethinking classic dishes, or having everyone bring a meal item that reflects the traditions of their cultural or ethnic background. What stays the same? The fact that friends and family gather around the table in gratitude, and the flowers at its center.
To bridge the gap between traditional and modern Thanksgiving, we’ve whipped up Festive Fall Centerpiece, a design that captures a contemporary holiday feel. With its bright blend of protea and succulents with roses and berries, this is the perfect marriage of old and new. You’ll note the scale is on point; this is a piece that stays low to the table and lays beautifully. A luxe ribbon peeps out amid the greenery, giving this arrangement a celebratory vibe.
No matter what you’re doing for Thanksgiving, make sure you have flowers at the heart of your table.
