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?
They say that peach roses are the flower of gratitude, a color choice that looks perfect this season (and when are roses not in style?). For a host gift, consider scale. You want something that isn’t too elaborate or showy, that can be gingerly received and placed in the home. You’ll also want to send the flowers in advance of Thanksgiving or right after. There’s no point in giving your host or hostess another task that involves putting something somewhere on the day of.
We like our Field Picked Autumn Bouquet for a host gift.
Daises, lilies, and yes, peach roses, all make for a sunny, harvest-hued arrangement. The simple vase tied with raffia and some greens complete the look. A piece like this delivers warmth right into the home and definitely communicates how much you appreciate your host’s time, energy, and expense.
We’re loving the classic gesture of offering a host or hostess flowers here at Julia’s Florist and are happy to help you pick out your perfect piece.
