Setting Your Thanksgiving Table

Thursday, November 22 is Thanksgiving Day.  So, the Countdown Begins.  

Part of the preparations for Turkey Day is planning your table:  polishing silver, preparing table linens, getting out the good china, choosing pretty candles, etc.  But don’t forget to include a beautiful centerpiece as the finishing touch on your holiday table.  

Your centerpiece can be as simple as a bowl of apples or other fruit garnished with some pretty greens or nuts or pine cones or as elaborate as a flower arrangement from a florist.

If you’re like me, you like to arrange some seasonal flowers yourself in a pretty container.  Then use some of the leftover flowers around the house on a coffee table, in a guestroom, or in a bathroom. 

If you choose to do your own thing, here are some tips for making cut flowers last longer:

Remember, the cooler the room in which the flowers are kept, the longer they will last.  Of course, your great-aunt Helen might not like it, but it will be wonderful for your flowers.  (My great-aunt Helen always got very irate, particularly when chilly!)

Remember, too, to enjoy the day and the people you’ve invited to share it with you.

All of us here at the Power of Flowers Project wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.  You, friends,  supporters, and sponsors of the POFP, are right at the top of the list of our many blessings.
