How ready are you for Thanksgiving? If the answer is very, then we suspect you’ve got your plans in place, and that they might include dining at someone else’s home. And you wouldn’t be alone; last year, nearly 50 million people traveled 50 miles or more to break bread with their loved ones, meaning that many people didn’t actually play host themselves.
So you may be all set, but we here at City Line Florist are here to remind you of one of the most traditional gestures you can make when showing up on your holiday hosts’ doorstep, and that is offering them a host or hostess gift.
Give something elegant and beautiful, but make sure your bouquet is in a simple vase already. Why? That way, you aren’t burdening your host with the task of finding a container. It’s also worth it to send the flowers either in advance of your visit or after, giving your hosts time to find a place to display your gift. The last thing you want to do is place yet another decor consideration on them the day of.
We like our Gold Rush arrangement for a thank-you gift. White lilies and sleek yellow calla are buffeted by orange roses and enveloping white hydrangea. This is a graceful piece, sure to warm up any home. It extends your gratitude without going overboard.
This is a time to give thanks, and as is customary, that should start with a fresh floral gift for your hosts, who have likely gone to tremendous efforts to make Thanksgiving lovely for you and others. Visit us at City Line Florist to pick out the perfect piece for your holiday hosts.
