Countdown to Thanksgiving…

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!

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.
