Our fresh and colorful Happy Homecomings Petite Bouquet Trio inspired the charmingly festive tablescape created by Courtney O’Dell of Sweet C’s Designs. The delightful bouquet of autumn sunflowers, roses, statice and solidago beautifully complemented Courtney’s table dressings and striking metallic accessories. Mimic how she also personalized the tablescape with simple fall accents like miniature pumpkins and dried corn cobs.

 

Thanksgiving Centerpiece Give Thanks Trio

 

I love Thanksgiving. It’s one of the holidays centered around my favorite things: delicious food and time with family. Plus, it’s an excuse to get fancy with your table, even if you go a bit over the top.


I love to create stunning tables full of items I have collected through the years: the dinnerware we were gifted at our wedding; the gold chargers I bought when I was engaged and frequently threw extravagant parties; embossed glassware like the ones at our favorite café; and, of course, the beautiful silver treasures my husband and I like to collect from antique shops when we travel.

 

When incorporating FTD’s Happy Homecomings Bouquet Trio into my tablescape, I was thrilled with how well the bouquets lent themselves to a mix of natural elements like a jute table runner and woven placemats, as well as more striking statement pieces like gold chargers and silver platters. Setting up the bouquets was insanely easy—I simply removed them from the box, filled the jars with water and set the flowers Then, I was able to personalize by adding small pumpkins, dried corn cobs and other accents to make our table look authentically festive.

I also added some fun confetti made out of glitter scrapbook paper as well as gold embellished craft paper notecards as place settings.

I love using cards as a way to mark guest’s seats, because you can scribble little notes of gratitude or mix it up with some fun conversation starters. Place cards are a classy touch to make guests feel individually welcomed and appreciated without spending a ton of money.
