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.

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. The spirit that gorgeous seasonal flowers, centerpieces, and candles bring to the ambiance cannot be ignored. At Julia's Florist, we are honored to have played a small part in the Wilmington area Thanksgiving festivities for over 25 years - and this year, we hope to help you start some beautiful new traditions!

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. The Pilgrims wished to express gratitude for a successful first harvest and invited the local Wampanoag Indians who had assisted them with growing the abundant food. To this day, we still gather with family and friends to show our appreciation for their love and support, as well as to recognize the many good things in our lives. At Julia's Florist, we are proud that we have participated in Wilmington area Thanksgiving customs for over 25 years. Read More about Traditions and Thanksgiving Customs »
