Who are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? At City Line Florist, we are so thankful for our amazing team who bring you the freshest, most beautiful blooms every day. From growers and farmers who provide our flowers to designers and sales staff who create your perfect designs, plus our capable delivery drivers who deliver the finished product directly to your door, it takes a village to create beautiful displays for your every occasion. We are so thankful for our village.
Often when we think of Thanksgiving, we think about tradition. Cultural traditions, family traditions, and culinary traditions take over before our imaginations have a chance to participate. This year, try thinking a little more creatively for a refreshing departure from the typical Thanksgiving. For example, instead of a formal dinner of over-indulgence, invite friends and family to a cocktail party Thanksgiving. Let guests enjoy trying new flavors and combinations and bring mixology recipes to share. An hors d’oeuvres table can still be dressed with your finest Thanksgiving linens and stemware, with beautiful Thanksgiving decor to tie the event together. Include a beautiful centerpiece from Cityline Florist to bring fresh new ideas together with comfortable traditions.
Fall has arrived and that means plenty of opportunities to celebrate this gorgeous season. The design experts at City Line Florist are ready with tips to help you create tablescapes perfect for autumn that you and your guests will enjoy all season.
- Contrast formal dinnerware with a rustic centerpiece to create a peaceful balance at your table. Gorgeous white china, classic flatware and thin stemware pair beautifully with bright pumpkins, acorns and pine cones in natural colors.
- Use winding tree branches, curly willow or hypericum berries instead of a table runner down the center of your table. Add a few metallic accents like shiny silver stemware or candlesticks for balance.
- Instead of a formal dinner, serve food from a buffet table. Add fall leaves, bark-lined cake stands and scattered fall flowers for a natural fall look.
As you begin to decorate for fall this season, let the floral artisans at City Line Florist help you bring out your sense of style and creativity with these artful tips to show off the essence of autumn:
- Use natural fall textures like branches, pinecones, and acorns to evoke the fresh ambiance of a walk through a fall woods.
- Make fall colors pop against a monochromatic foundation. Use a creamy off-white table cloth for your formal dining table to make the brilliant, rich hues in your floral autumn centerpiece shine.
- Dress up steps, staircases, mantles and shelves with mini pumpkins or apples carved into candle votives.

On October 20, we celebrate National Bosses Day, a date you definitely want to circle on your work calendar. This is a time to sow some goodwill with your fearless leader, mentor, guide, teacher . . .

September 15 to October 15 is officially designated as National Hispanic Heritage Month here in the U.S., a time reserved to celebrate the contributions of the Latin American world. We honor Hispanic Americans, their families and their cultures by enjoying and rediscovering the gifts that Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and the Americas have brought us. From art to food to literature to ideas, the U.S. is enriched and enlivened by the contributions Hispanic Americans have made. City Line Florist celebrates this month by highlighting one contribution in particular, the dahlia.
If you’re looking for a fun new entertaining idea for fall, look no further, City Line Florist ‘s got you. While it’s one thing to spice up your tablescape with a new, harvest-hued piece, we can go one better: serve up some edible flowers alongside those vased blooms! Both food and drink recipes that make use of consumable flowers are trending right now, popping up on menus and in magazines, much to the delight of foodies and flower-lovers alike.
As fall approaches, we can finally inject a little drama into our decor. One of the best ways to do that is to turn to the jewel-tone palette, a seasonal favorite. We here at City Line Florist love the dimension, depth and mystery of gemstone colors, whether it’s ruby red, crimson, violet, blue or emerald green. Luckily, a whole range of flowers is available in these hues, which will not only enliven your space but give it a sense of gravitas, too. If you aren’t ready to invest in full-on fabric and linen decor in these colors, flowers can be a great way to get the same effect without breaking the bank.
City Line Florist is in full support of self-care awareness, and so is September. As the officially designated month for such things, September serves to remind us to slow down and to take a little time for ourselves. With the holidays right around the corner, whatever we can do to preserve and enhance our well-being is good. One of the best ways to do that is to welcome a plant into our space.
