One of my greatest pleasures of my Thanksgiving entertaining, is doing my centerpieces for the Thanksgiving tables! I always set the tables on Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving and then do my floral arrangements early Wednesday morning. That allows me to enjoy them all day on Wednesday while I am cooking. Today I thought I would share with you some of my favorite Thanksgiving flowers.
I like to make beautifully colored roses the anchor for my centerpieces. Some of my favorite fall colored roses include:
Now that I have these lovely color options, it is time to add some other textures to show off these roses!
Add some great texture with Leucospermum…
And some Mango Calla Lily, some Hypericum, some orange Asclepias Tuberosa , and the great texture of Celosia.
And with all of my blue in the china, I add the dark blue Delphinium and the spectacular texture of thistle…Erynigium Oliverianum.
I always want to add a variety of greens to the centerpieces, so my favorites are Bells of Ireland (Moluccella) and a few big green spider mums!
For filler, I prefer Pittosporum, in both solid green and the variegated green.
Better get ready and plan your beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece floral arrangements!
