Thanksgiving is a time when we take a moment to give thanks, enjoy the company of friends and family, eat lots of delicious food. It’s the perfect holiday! Some of the best parts of Thanksgiving are leftovers, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, the National Dog Show, football, and typically great weather. It’s the holiday that signals the end of fall and beginning of the holiday season with a rush up to Christmas and then New Year’s. From Trias Flower’s family to yours, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the Thanksgiving-themed blogs we’ve assembled for you here to discover fabulous fall flower arrangements, dazzling centerpieces, decorating tips, and more!
It’s November, which means it’s the perfect time to bond with your friends and family and to remember all the things in your life for which you’re most grateful.
Every year at Thanksgiving, we like to stop and take a moment to think about the things and the people we are most thankful for. At Trias Flowers, we are especially grateful for our hard-working, dedicated team of professionals.
For Thanksgiving this year instead of spending your time in the kitchen cooking and cleaning up after a giant meal, consider simplifying your time so that you can truly enjoy the things you’re grateful for.
We embrace Thanksgiving with open arms, which are then promptly filled with flowers. After all, this is the season of the centerpiece, and we at Trias Flowers are literally steeped in them.
There is so much to love about Thanksgiving. All year long we anticipate the family gathering together, sharing all of our favorite food, and creating memories – and it all happens around the holiday table.
Whether you celebrate a traditional American holiday or infuse cherished cultural influences – Thanksgiving celebrations are uniquely personal. Each family has special customs, each community adds their flair, but all have the same intention.
Many assume that the first Thanksgiving was in 1621, at the legendary meal between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians. However, harvest festivals have been observed since ancient times; in fact, the idea of feasting to show thanks for an abundant harvest seems to be one of the world’s earliest known traditions.
We celebrate the bounty of the harvest and the fact that fall represents the end of that harvest. Although Floridians may not have to deal with the hard freezes that remind northerners that winter will soon be upon them, everyone celebrates Thanksgiving because it is a time for giving thanks, sharing with others, and expressing gratitude for all we have.
So many of us will be traveling over hill and dale this Thanksgiving to gather around the table with our nearest and dearest. In fact, last year, 50 million people went 50 miles or more to do just that, and we at Trias Flowers don’t expect this year to be any different.
The traditional cornucopia, or ‘horn of plenty’, is a common centerpiece on our holiday tables. Through the centuries the horn-shaped basket overflowing with fruits, nuts, gourds, and grains has symbolized abundance, prosperity, and good luck.
