Happy Thanksgiving! From the Julia’s Florist family to yours, we hope you are surrounded by friends and family and enjoying delicious food. We love this holiday for many reasons… the juicy turkey (of course), the camaraderie with loved ones, football, dog shows, and Macy’s parade, too. We adore this holiday so much we’ve written several blogs about it for your enjoyment and to get into the turkey spirit! Most of all, though, we love this holiday because it’s about sharing, the inclusion of all races and religions, and giving thanks. Regardless of the type of year we’ve had, it’s important to focus on the positives. Plus, after Thanksgiving, the Christmas holiday season is officially upon us on and before you know it, New Year’s will be here. But for now, let’s enjoy another slice of pumpkin pie and laughter around a fire with the people we love.
One of the most exciting parts about Thanksgiving – at least to us here at Julia’s Florist – is what goes on the dining table. No, we don’t mean food, though the feast itself certainly gets top billing at our house. It’s the flowers, and specifically, the centerpiece.
This Thanksgiving, if you’re looking for a way to step outside of tradition and design an original, creative way to celebrate the holiday, think about hosting a picnic-style Thanksgiving.
At Julia’s Florist, serving Wilmington and the surrounding areas, our professional florists and gift designers have been busy putting together a list of thoughtful and creativity hostess gifts that would be perfect for anyone who’s hosting your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving dinner.
Thanksgiving is a holiday born out of meaningful tradition and sentiments. The gathering commonly accepted as representing the first Thanksgiving meal took place in Plymouth Meeting, Massachusetts in 1621.
Thanksgiving is arguably our country’s oldest holiday. It is one that is steeped in traditions, many of which connect us to the season, and to the importance of yearly harvests.
On November 26th, when you gather around a beautifully decorated table with you friends, family members and other loved ones, take a moment to remember our nation’s history.
Even if cold temperatures and gray skies make what is actually still fall, feel like winter, Thanksgiving is inching up on us. Unpredictable weather makes it difficult for anyone to feel the spirit of the holiday – at least weather wise.
When executed correctly, the holiday table is a thing of beauty. From the festive place settings to the mouth-watering turkey fresh from the oven, getting together with loved ones is the most beloved aspect of our Thanksgiving celebrations.
