Thanksgiving comes with its own unique history, traditional food fare, autumn colors and family and friendship 'round the table and throughout the house. Of the more than a dozen claims to the first Thanksgiving, two occur in Virginia, one in Texas, and the most well-known in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where some 50 pilgrims and about 90 Indians dined in thankfulness, perhaps for the peace they were enjoying as much as the meal.
At Home: When you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner, you want your table and living spaces to look warm and inviting, and fresh flowers raise the bar on home decor in a beautiful way.
Flowers are simply one of nature's most breathtaking achievements, and autumn one of the most warm and wonderful of seasons. Popular flowers in fall colors include:
chrysanthemums ~ sweet
lilies ~ bold
daisies ~ whimsical
sunflowers ~ impressive
carnations ~ happy
roses ~ lovely, always lovely
At the Office: Besides having pretty flowers adorn your office, lobby, waiting room or workspace, consider having autumn flower gift baskets delivered a few days before Thanksgiving for you and your co-workers to enjoy a time of corporate gratitude for your jobs and work environment. If so inclined, you could send a basket or floral delivery to your employees, thanking them for their work.
At the Home of a Friend or Relative: A hostess gift is de rigueur for anyone going to another's home for Thanksgiving dinner, brunch, other meal or gathering during the holiday. Fresh flowers can be sent a day early, or you can have them delivered to yourself for taking with you. If you know that the host and/or hostess loves exceptional gourmet treats like specialty tea and coffee, delightful chocolates, premium crackers, biscotti, unusual jams or jellies ... and much more, then ring the doorbell with a gourmet gift basket in your arms. Incredible thankfulness will begin at the very moment you smile and hand over the flowers, the gift basket or both and say: "This is for you!"
