What are the best flowers to use in Thanksgiving floral arrangements?

Occurring in fall and celebrating everything that this golden season represents - the harvesting of the fruits of our labor as well as reconciliation and humility - it is no surprise that the best flowers to use in your Thanksgiving bouquets are those that feature autumnal colors and champion the amber foliage this season is celebrated for. 

After all, what could better encapsulate Thanksgiving than autumn fall flowers? Think burning oranges, flaming yellows, rich reds, burgundies and maroons. And, don’t forget, each of these colors carry special symbolic meanings that will make your holiday centerpiece even more magical: 

According to delivery service 1800Flowers, the best flowers to use in Thanksgiving arrangements are blooms such as orange roses, yellow lilies and burgundy chrysanthemums. These symbolize gratitude and capture the simple sentiment of the holiday.

Fall colors for Thanksgiving flower arrangements

1800Flowers also recommends other flowers such as daisies, gerbera daisies, sunflowers, carnations, Peruvian lilies and cushion poms in their Thanksgiving flower guide on their delivery website.

Of course, if greenery and plants are more to your taste than rambunctious flowers, consider treating yourself to a gift from a plant delivery service. Plants like poinsettia or begonias make for colorful and warm additions to Thanksgiving decor.

The best Thanksgiving flower arrangement ideas

If you’re looking to make your own Thanksgiving flower arrangement, the sky’s the limit in terms of what you can create.

As well as using the flowers and color schemes suggested above, why not get truly imaginative and incorporate autumnal fruits and vegetables into a Thanksgiving flower arrangement, centerpiece or table display?

Use pumpkins in Thanksgiving arrangements

Carve out a holiday pumpkin and use it as an inventive vase or candle holder. Incorporate candles - preferably in fall colors such as deep red or orange - into your flower arrangements for added warmth.

Adding greenery from the garden is another creative way to create a homely and original Thanksgiving arrangement (that’s also a great option for anyone on a budget or who has missed the boat for flower deliveries).

How to get the most out of your Thanksgiving flower delivery

Don’t forget that almost as important as choosing your Thanksgiving arrangement is making sure the flowers last as long as possible. 

To keep your Thanksgiving bouquet looking fresher for longer after delivery, be sure to follow these simple steps.

  • Put your flowers immediately into fresh water after delivery.
  • As soon as your delivery arrives, have a clean vase ready to transfer them to. This will prevent bacteria build-up which can cause your flowers to decay faster.
  • Leave them in the fridge at night-time for extra freshness - people will think you’ve just received them as a delivery even a week later!
  • Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle regularly to promote optimal water absorption for that fresh delivery look
  • Change your arrangement’s water regularly.
