Now that those stuffed turkeys and pumpkin pies are beginning to hit the shelves of practically every grocery store across the country, the mother of your family is likely on the lookout for decorative items that can add a little extra spice to her living spaces for the Thanksgiving feast. If this is the case, the family matriarch is probably working overtime to ensure that everything is prepared in time for the festivities, especially if practically every close relative is making the trek to her house come Turkey Day. You might want to consider taking a load off her shoulders by endowing her with plant gifts that can give the entire home an appropriate seasonal flair.
While there are plenty of fall decorations out there that can spruce up virtually any home, housewarming plants are often the best way to go. After all, the autumn months are known best for harvest, especially when referring to gourds.
Although it may not be ideal to use a pumpkin as the centerpiece to a dinner table, there are a number of flowers on the market that might just look great in a ceramic pumpkin container. For example, the dark red-orange hues of the kalanchoe plant can be the perfect match for a pumpkin decoration. The plant requires very little care, which means that your mom won’t have to put that on her extensive to-do list every day.
Another fabulous centerpiece for the kitchen table is a Thanksgiving Cornucopia, which consists of maple and eucalyptus leaves, as well as faux pomegranates, fresh evergreens and faux berries. This spectacular arrangement comes in a ginger grosgrain triple bow that has a unique triangular shape. Any mother would surely be glad to make this the focal point of her dining room table during a Thanksgiving feast.
If you think your mom would be more pleased by an item that can give guests a warm greeting at her front door, you might want to take wreathes into consideration. Although it may seem slightly early for those types of arrangements, there are plenty of seasonal ones to choose from, such as a pumpkin spice or autumn wreath.
When picking the perfect floral arrangements for your mother when she hosts a massive Thanksgiving feast, why not go for those that can pay appropriate homage to the season?
