Thanksgiving Floral Recipe

With the holidays swiftly approaching, we’re excited to share this stunning floral arrangement. Wouldn’t this organic arrangement be perfect for your Thanksgiving tabletop?

From the designer, Kelly Lenard:
“For this arrangement, I wanted to take a softer approach to the often bold array of colors that come with the autumn months. These shades remind me of the edge of autumn when the trees and landscape are just starting to turn. The feeling of fall is in the cooler air, but the deep red and orange foliage has yet to emerge.

I started with a mix of greens, foraged leaves, and grasses. Then using a base of blush, beige, cream, and bronze I constructed the basic shape of the centerpiece. I’m drawn to analogous colors, hues that flow from one to the next. I loved how the rosy skin of the pomegranates helped to bridge the gap between the neutrals and the darker shades of plum and burgundy. The tulips, scabiosa, and purple lady were the final touches. Their placement served to add movement and a bit of whimsy to the overall design.

Be it a wedding or a dinner party, this recipe it fitting for any elegant autumn gathering!”
