November: Be Thankful
November is here already! The month when we take time out of our busy lives to be thankful for the blessings we have. Sure, there is a day specifically devoted to being thankful, (Thanksgiving is November 22!) but why not observe what you are thankful for the entire month of November? No matter where we are in life, there are so many things to be grateful for.
November is also a month of beautiful flowers. A great way to say ‘Thanks!’ is by sending a beautiful fall arrangement. It doesn’t have to be much, but this simple gesture can make someone truly joyful.
Be thankful of the beauty all around us. Bring fall flowers into your home as an easy way to decorate for the remainder of the season. During Thanksgiving, when family is gathering to celebrate the bounty of our lives, why not display the beauty of fall flowers? Your local florist can create a gorgeous cornucopia flower arrangement for your Thanksgiving table centerpiece. The above flower arrangement, Thanksgiving Feast would look perfect setting near the green bean casserole on your buffet table.
Just remember your local florist this November, for all your fall decorating needs.
Thanksgiving Flowers – A Style For Everyone
An easy way to take your Thanksgiving decor to the next level is by incorporating harvest-themed flowers. The colors, fragrances, and beauty of flowers can make any buffet table look like it was composed by Ms. Martha Stewart herself. Let’s take a look at the different styles available; try to imagine each of these on your holiday table.
The trends of wedding bouquets change just as often as any other fashion trend. In recent years, the round, hand-tied bouquets are practically all you see… until now.
Cascading bouquets were extremely popular in the 80′s. Thank Princess Diana and her legendary wedding to Prince Charles. It’s easy to see why this type of bouquet was chosen for a princess. All of those flowers, the trailing cascade — it’s so beautiful.

Florist Helps Couple Celebrate 65th Anniversary
Being a florist is a very fulfilling job because you get to help people celebrate the most important and special occasions in their life. That was just the case for Sandra Hooper of Maryjane’s Flowers & Gifts in Berlin NJ. She was asked to help a couple at an assisted living center celebrate their 65th (no, not a typo!) wedding anniversary.
Sandra was given a copy of their wedding portrait and was able to copy the original wedding bouquet almost exactly. What memories that must have stirred up!
