Fall Floral Arrangements for Your Thanksgiving Table
Posted by Kevin Sharkey
Since the holiday is tomorrow and I know a lot of you are probably busy prepping meals and getting your home ready for dinner guests, I thought I would share my favorite fall flower arrangements from Martha Stewart Living with you again. It's so easy to bring the rich colors of fall into your home with flowers, and these arrangements will give you plenty of inspiration for your own Thanksgiving table centerpiece and decor!
1 The colors here are so complementary and perfect for the season.
2 A white-pumpkin shell becomes the vase for an arrangement of roses, daffodils, ranunculuses, calla lilies, tulips, and hypericum berries in fall colors.
3 Rose Hip Arrangement: After the flowers have faded, jewel-hued rose hips -- the fruit of a rose plant -- carry the beauty of the garden into fall.
4 Dutch Floral Display: Take a cue from classic Dutch painters and create a floral display that's as captivating as an early-17th-century still life.
5 Mum Arrangement: In the first weeks of fall, brisk air and frequent showers invigorate late-blooming chrysanthemums.
6 Mum and Rose Hips Arrangement: Pale-yellow 'Ginger' and orange 'Gold Strike' mums are made livelier by crimson dahlias; clusters of ruby-red rose hips gleam like jewels between the flowers. As a centerpiece, the display sets a cheerful tone for a weekend brunch.
7 Orange and Red Arrangement: A collar of chrysanthemums in the same autumnal tone as the cast-iron urn provides a tidy transition between the container and the native Australian blooms, which can be ordered year-found from a florist.
8 Artichoke Arrangement: This waxen, globed vegetable is more appropriate than you might think for an arrangement, considering the edible head of an artichoke is actually an immature flower. Purple ones with long stems may be specially ordered through a florist.
9 This Fall Branch Arrangement shows-off the popular bright autumn colors.
10 Mums are easy flowers to find -- your local market, garden center, or florist should have them.
11 Pomegranates, red viburnum berries, tulips, roses, ranunculus, and a bronzy-green magnolia-leaf wreath are all used to create the perfect Thanksgiving centerpiece.
12 You can enhance a flower arrangement by placing a framed mirror underneath.
13 This basket contains an array of cymbidium orchids, seeded eucalyptus, and leaves of Brandfor pear trees.
