How to Create Beautiful Thanksgiving Centerpieces- Video

Whether you are hosting your actual Thanksgiving dinner or not, any one of these centerpieces is sure to wow your holiday visitors. But why go to all the trouble?? I do it because I think it’s another way to show the people you care about, that they are worth the extra effort. To me, creating a beautiful table only enhances your overall dinner. It’s like putting fresh flowers in your guest room when you have visitors coming… Is it necessary? Of course not. But I think that small extra effort really means a lot!

If you don’t put out flowers often- don’t worry! My friend Margo will help guide you through it and make it look and feel effortless. And let’s be honest, flowers are beautiful all on their own so anything (big, small, elaborate or simple) you put out will look amazing!

If you have any events coming up and are looking for a florist- Margo can do just about anything! From weddings to parties- she does it all. Feel free to contact her at: MargoJohnson90@gmail.com
