Sometimes during the holidays we can become so caught up in fulfilling traditions, we forget the meaning behind the celebration. This Thanksgiving, shake things up a bit and take a break from tradition by using your imagination to design a non-traditional Thanksgiving. Instead of a heavy meal of expected cuisine, invite loved ones to a cocktail party. Use your traditional Thanksgiving table settings for your hors d’oeuvre table, complete with a centerpiece from the fabulous collection at Curran’s Flowers. Ask guests to bring their favorite drink recipes, feature a mixology table, and let guests enjoy a simple but elegant evening enjoying one another.

Now that fall has arrived, it’s time to celebrate the beauty of the season. Stunning decor and tablescapes are a great start to festive entertaining, and the design professionals at Curran’s Flowers have some great ideas for you to try this season.
Instead of a traditional table runner, opt for a unique and natural look with magnolia leaves down the middle of your table for a rustic runner.
Create stunning texture with maize and wheat arranged across your table or on a cake stand for maximum impact.
Include candles in all shapes and sizes for a perfectly mismatched look. Candlelight adds ambiance, and short round tri-wick candles provide a different vibe than tall tapers. Mix them all for a beautiful balance and whimsical effect. Read More about Autumn On Your Table
Beautiful fall colors and textures give your seasonal fall decorating a depth that evokes the feeling of walking through an autumn forest. The creative experts at Curran’s Flowers have some excellent decorating ideas for bringing harvest textures into your decorating scheme this season.
Use existing space to maximize height or depth. Tall ceilings are great for woodsy branches. Utilize porch steps or an indoor staircase to showcase gorgeous fall flowers.
Play with light to create new dimensions with your decor. Add candles in votives made of carved apples or mini-pumpkins, or twirl fairy lights among fall leaves for a starlight effect.
Include plenty of natural elements to create texture that displays the essence of fall. Acorns, pinecones, pumpkins and other gourds lend a new dimension to your decor. Read More about Fall’s Colors and Textures
