Create a Custom Thanksgiving Centerpiece for a New Family Tradition

Whether you are planning on hosting Thanksgiving this year or visiting someone else's house for the festivities, it's nice to include flowers as part of the celebration. They add warmth and ambiance, especially when you include numerous fall accents that offer symbols like pumpkins, leaves, branches, turkeys and more. With Thanksgiving arriving on Thursday, November 23rd, now is the time to think about what you might want to create for decor or offer as a gift this holiday season.
