This season, the design geniuses at Julia’s Florist have plenty of tips to share with you to help you create a fabulous tablescape that you and your guests will enjoy all season long.
A great way to dress up your formal table for fall is to simply add several mini pumpkins to your traditional design. For a more elegant presentation, use blanched, or white, pumpkins.
Utilize the natural beauty of the season by including stalks of wheat, dried maize, or hypericum berries along your table runner as accents to your floral centerpiece- or use these to design your own creative centerpiece!
Play with metallics. Use cutlery and candlesticks in different finishes for a mismatched but polished look. Read More about Autumn At The Center Of Your Table »

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.
What you put in the middle of your table is meant to capture the spirit of your Thanksgiving, whether you're hosting an informal potluck where everybody brings their signature dish or a more formal affair. Centerpieces are meant to be enjoyed and remarked upon. They have to be lovely but not distracting. And your guests have to be able to talk over them, so keep those pieces long and low, we say.

Where will you be spending Turkey Day? If you're like nearly 50 million people last year, you'll be traveling 50 miles or more over hill and dale to be around the table with the ones you love come November 23. And since it isn't your table you'll be gathered around, you'll want to remember to bring something else with you, along with that side item of green bean casserole or stuffing: a host gift.
We here at Julia's Florist are never short of ideas when it comes to gifts; in fact, this mission plays to our strengths. The classic host gift is flowers, of course. But which? Read More about Gifts of Gratitude for the Host »
Can we talk mums for a minute?
November's ubiquitous golden blooms start appearing in October, mostly because we're all so excited to herald the arrival of Fall (unless it's just us at Julia's Florist, but we don't think so). We've been stacking container mums on our front steps, nestling them around our front door or planting them straight into our flower beds come Fall for what seems forever. Why are they so popular? For starters, they are frost-tolerant. Secondly, they love shorter days. Treated properly, they'll last through Thanksgiving. And oh yeah, they're really pretty. Read More about A Moment for Mums »
