On Thanksgiving all your senses should be stimulated. We've got the taste and smell pretty well covered with dinner, the sound with laughter and conversation and though a table full of food is a feast for the eyes, a little floral beauty doesn't go amiss.
This is how we do it in Ye Olde Flower Shoppe.
We take a miniature pumpkin and off with it's head! We clean out the inners and then line it with floral foil. Then we cut a plug of wet oasis and insert in foil.
Now the magic begins. Take anything you can find in your garden, berries, boxwood, perhaps some maple leaves, and begin to fill. if you have some roses or asters still blooming, add them. Maybe a handful of herbs, like rosemary or sage. Just keep turning pumpkin and fill in all sides. If you have nothing growing go buy some, but you don't need a lot, just a sweet variety.
Have a seat and admire. Maybe make several more and use them for the Thanksgiving table. If you're in a loving mood give one to each guest as they leave.
It's all about the 3 G's, right people? Gratitude, gluttony and giving.
