Thanksgiving is a truly special holiday where you get to spend time with family and friends, enjoy great food, and give thanks for all the good things in your life. Here at Stadium Flowers, we love Thanksgiving for these reasons and more. For instance, we love the warm and cozy Thanksgiving vibes, the fact that it’s a time to enjoy each other’s company, that it’s an all-inclusive holiday anybody can celebrate, and that it leads up to the holiday season and end of the year. Oh, and the leftovers are pretty fantastic as well. From our family to yours, we wish a very happy Thanksgiving and hope you enjoy our collection of Thanksgiving-themed blog posts we’ve assembled for you below.
If you’ve been invited to celebrate Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving at someone else’s home this year, then don’t forget to show your gratitude with a thoughtful gift.
At Thanksgiving, we start to think about the people and things we are most grateful for. At Stadium Flowers we are extremely thankful for all of the hard-working individuals who comprise our team of professionals.
If you’re tired of the stress surrounding the holiday season, let this Thanksgiving be an opportunity to simplify and take time with family. Instead of an elaborate list of dozens of people, stay in with your family.
Think you know everything there is to know about holiday centerpieces? Think again. The typical Thanksgiving centerpiece is a flat splay of harvest blooms tied off with a plaid taffeta bow and topped with a taper candle, right?
It is nearly Thanksgiving, and all the plans focus on the holiday table. From the loved ones who will gather there, to the delicious food prepared – the focal point of this holiday is the meal we share with family and friends.
Thanksgiving is a holiday overflowing with tradition. Whether your traditions are historical or have personal meaning within your family, these memories are special and last a lifetime.
Most mistakenly believe that the traditional cornucopia – or horn of plenty – originated with the Pilgrims and Indians at the first Plymouth Thanksgiving. But the first mention we find of this classic symbol actually reaches all the way back to 5 B.C, and the stories of Zeus as a child.
When the Pilgrims and native Indians sat down to a celebratory dinner in 1621, they had no idea of the legacy that would follow. That first meal was an expression of thanks on many levels – the settlers were grateful to their Indian friends for their help with farming, and they were thankful for a bountiful harvest.
When we talk about Thanksgiving, people naturally think we’re talking about the food.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving! I took this photo from my deck a few days ago!
