Pre-Holiday Florals

More rain has afforded me a day off. Or is it? There is always so much to do. I did get to the market yesterday though, to see what I could find for Thanksgiving flowers.

I love using pine boughs. Arrangements that would look "spring-y" any other time of year suddenly look like Holiday when paired with pine~

I found lots of green and white, and tucked in some purple lilies~
A few pears went along well too; put them on bamboo skewers and tuck them in~
and the beautiful tuberose fill the room with clean white fragrance~
there are Stargazers too though they are no open yet; they will be perfect by Thursday...
Since we are going to my sister's house Thursday, I think I will divide this group up into our table flowers.
Until Thursday though, we will just enjoy them in the dining room.


  1. I am so envious of your beautiful selection. We don't share the wealth here on the opposite coast. The pairing of greens and fruits adds such a festive feel.

    Have a wonderful week ahead ~

  2. Andrea these are fabulous florals, I love your selections and color palette!

  7. Hi Andrea, Your floral arrangement is beautiful! My grandmother owned a floral shop and she made the most gorgeous arrangements. Unfortunately I did not inherit her talent. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
