My favorite Thanksgiving Flowers are arranged in a centerpiece for the dining room table. This design is made with fall flowers and candles. Orange gerbera, orange asiatic lilies, bronze mums and roses are the feature flowers with fillers and greens. Great to send as a gift or to buy for yourself. May be ordered without candles if that is more suitable. Also, may be used for any occasion or to decorate many locations.
This design has been named The Bright Autumn Centerpiece and it is easy to see why. The colors are bright and so typical of a fall day created by nature.
This beautiful fall arrangement need not be limited to Thanksgiving. It would be much appreciated as a birthday gift or for the office foyer. Flowers are at home almost anywhere that is free of drafts and wide temperature swings. Water daily to ensure the flowers have enough to drink. Do not place on delicate surfaces without some protection such as a plate to catch excess water. Placing the arrangement in a cool place at night will help to prolong the life of the flowers.
