Ways to Spend Your Thanksgiving

Ways to Spend Your Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time when people can gather together and spend time in each other’s company. There are a couple of different ways you could spend your Thanksgiving. No matter how you celebrate it, the best way to spend Thanksgiving is by doing whatever feels fulfilling and meaningful. Keep reading to see some of our favorite ways we like to spend the holiday In Bloom!

Being a Dinner Host:

As the Thanksgiving dinner host, setting the right ambiance is essential. Of course, organizing the menu and planning the seating arrangements are important too, but creating the right atmosphere can set the tone for gratitude and togetherness. When creating the right atmosphere, the decor is a must, and one of the simplest ways to make a statement with your decor, whether subtle or large, is by adding fresh flowers! You can wow your guests when they step into your home with the Grand Forage arrangement. You can’t forget the table decor either. Just like the Thanksgiving turkey, your centerpiece can be a classic tradition and a staple during the holiday too! You can go for a traditional floral centerpiece like the Golden Gathering Cornucopia or something a little more modern like the Thanksgiving Trailblazer Centerpiece.

Being a Dinner Guest:

If you are invited over to someone’s home for Thanksgiving, a great way to show your appreciation is by bringing a gift as a thank you. It’s no surprise that flowers can make people happy, so why not opt to bring an arrangement to your host? The Falling Autumn is a timeless Fall arrangement anyone would love. If you want to go for a more subtle Fall feel, try the Scenic Sage, this is a neutral fall decor item that’s sure to bring a smile. You can also bring wine to share with other guests at the dinner! When deciding what to bring, it’s important to know what will be best for the host.

Sending Something to a Loved One:

It can be difficult to visit every family member and loved one during Thanksgiving. Even though you can’t be with them physically, you can still let them know how grateful you are to have them in your life! Sending them an arrangement or gift to their doorstep will be a lovely surprise and a beautiful way to let them know you are thinking of them. You don’t have to keep it to only flowers either! A custom gift basket is also a great way to show your appreciation. You can spend time virtually with them during Thanksgiving and still share a meal with them while they open up your gift!

Friendsgiving with Your Besties:

Friendsgiving is such a fun way to spend time with your friends and share a meal together before the stress of Thanksgiving day with the family. Since Friendsgiving tends to be more casual, you can get away with a more relaxed tablescape for your table or a subtle gift. The Cross-Country Trio can make a beautiful centerpiece without it looking too traditional, and you can decorate throughout your home to add a touch of Fall everywhere. Having bud vases with Fall florals is also a nice way to decorate the table, adding modern elegance to dinner. The best part about Friendsgiving, besides getting to spend time with your close friends, is that there is no wrong way to celebrate it. It can be as casual and as simple as you want it!

Intimate Thanksgiving at Home:

Are you planning on having a small, intimate Thanksgiving dinner at home? You can still find ways to make it festive. You can opt for a floral centerpiece, but the key to an intimate Thanksgiving is to keep the decor simple and meaningful. You can pair your flowers with candles, or subtle Fall decor items such as pumpkins or a simple runner. If you’re planning on having a sweatpants-kind-of-day Thanksgiving and want to sit on the couch to eat, you can still decorate your home with Thanksgiving Florals to add some fun to your night!
