How to Plan the Perfect Thanksgiving Spread

You're probably thinking we're gonna be talking about food. On the contrary, the stuff around the food is also significant: good friends, classy drinks, and beautiful flowers. Dining room arrangements are just as important as who made it onto the invitation list. Give your friends a gift of aesthetic that showcases a sense of calmness and invitation to build memories. Here are some tips on how to be scenic with your Thanksgiving scene:

  • Choose the right table. Use a table of healthy size to ensure you have enough space for food, people, and things. Most stock kitchen tables do the trick but if you can swing it and the options are available, it's wise to utilize any side space as well, tables, bars, and the like.
  • Choose the right accessories. Whether it's cornucopias, candles, or flowers, accessories have a way of augmenting the dining table perfectly so it's important to chose the right ones for your event.
  • Accessorize the table and surrounding areas. Whenever possible, place themed accessories within view of the main dishes. This will fill out any empty space and make the experience feel more full and colorful.
  • Theme the evening. Match the table cloth color with wall color. If you've got stock brick walls, go with a crimson or brown table cloth. If you've got white walls, go with a white table cloth. Color matching or complementing is a great way to make use of space and impress your guests.
  • Work on a budget. You can enjoy pleasant scenes without breaking the bank. Look for closeout sales throughout the year at places that sell home goods. These sales usually happen during the days immediately after the holidays so you can always plan ahead for next season.

Did you know flowers promote positive mental health?

Engagement with flowers reduces the level of stress hormone, cortisol, and makes us feel more relaxed. According to research, bright colors combined with soft greens can boost our mood and calm our senses. The reason for this is flowers help us feel close to nature, which is an instinctual desire. Due to the connection to nature, it's encouraged that we engage with flowers as often as possible. Here are some places to put flowers to help promote mental health:

  • Office: Add a small tabletop stem to your desk. The dimension of your desk should be considered when deciding on ideal size of flower pot but if available, side tables make for excellent backup choices.
  • Garage: While not the best place to store flowers, if yours is spacious and air conditioned, having a stem nearby the workbench is a suitable choice to help enhance the area.
  • Decks and Porches: This is the most common outside area for plants. Plants and flowers in these areas make these spaces feel more natural.
  • Man Cave: Sure, sure, I get it, flowers in a man cave? But it's actually quite nice to see plants around sports stuff. Consider the type of man and his line of work before gifting him with flowers or plants. If he works long hours, they likely won't get the care they need. However, if he works from home, this might be an appropriate gesture. For the owner of the man cave, plants and flowers help make corners and empty spaces feel more warm and inviting.

Flowers make for excellent additions to any context and all can uplift the moods of those in attendance. For those in stressful careers, flowers can help you keep calm so you can perform at your best. While flowers aren't made to get you promoted, they do promote positive mental health and as such should be welcomed always.
