Gracious Centerpieces for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is but a minute away, but there’s still time to grace your table with flowers.

The centerpiece is one of our most cherished holiday traditions. Both the cornucopia – an age-old approach to suggesting abundance on one’s table – and the centerpiece have a rich history. These days, the two have even been blended in some cases, with flowers spilling out of the horn of plenty instead of fruit. Here at Curran’s Flowers we have a variety of blooms for your holiday table, whether you’re looking for a traditional centerpiece or want something a little more modern.

Of course you’ll want to select an arrangement that reflects all of those harvest hues, as our Shelburne Falls piece does. Full of texture and unexpected contrasts (tulips alongside cabbage flower, for instance), this arresting design is made for an elegant table.

For a pop of color, look for arrangements that feature autumn’s rich gold palette. That color is at the heart of our Branching Out design, a vibrant garden of blooms.

We like floral arrangements like these for the table because they are just the right scale and won’t interrupt your guest’s line of sight. They are also little conversation pieces, interesting enough to compete with the glorious food on the table itself but not so dramatic as to be a distraction from eating it.

Let us at Curran’s Flowers know if we can help you design your perfect Thanksgiving table.
