It's the perfect time to revisit the fine art of making a beautiful (and serviceable) Thanksgiving table. You may have how to set up the silverware nailed down, but there are other things to consider, starting with how many guests you'll have. Once you've got that number, you can have some fun creating place cards, if you're going the formal route. If not, you can begin to scale your table to the number, adding an extension, seating or a kids table if necessary. Place the serveware you'll be using on the table in advance; this kind of "dinner rehearsal" will really let you see where you can bring in other decor, including your centerpiece flowers.

Use pumpkins accented with fresh fall greens like moss, tall bear grass and succulents, for a pop of color amidst a natural display for your fall table.
Mix the essence of a formal dinner party with the relaxed feel of a buffet by serving your guests on gold and glass dinnerware.

Grandparents Day began in West Virginia in the 1970s as an opportunity for families to gather together. Its purpose was to give grandchildren a special day to honor their grandparents, to teach them the importance of learning from an older generation, and to allow grandparents a day to shower love on their children’s children. Since the beginning, this day has opened opportunities for children and grandparents to connect. Zeidler’s Flowers encourages you to continue the tradition this September, when Grandparents Day is observed on the first Sunday after Labor Day. Read More about Floral Traditions We Love To Inherit
