Thanksgiving Flower Arrangements
It was a first time for everyone at the table! They did a fantastic job! Thanks ladies!!!!
ps. Cost: a whopping $86. I bought multiple bunches of orange flowers and the queens ann lace* from a local veggie and flower shop. Thankfully (Thanksgiving!!), the beige and purple grasses as well as the hydrangeas were from our garden and a kind neighbors garden (12 giant hydrangeas for free!!!!Take as many as you want, he said! Oh boy!!!)...I looked at the supermarket flowers from metro, they were $24 for a giant bunch of yellow and red blooms. One bunch may have filled one compote dish. Maybe there were cheaper bunches but I would have needed two or three of the smalls per dish. Summary: Not cheap.
pps. A shout out to A.W. who reads 8footsix faithfully!!!
ppps. I will try to take photos of the tables once they are fully set tomorrow, but with so many helpers in the house (and food that needs cooking), I may not get the chance!!
pppps. The grey plaid tablecloth is new from The Bay. Part of the Gluckstein collection - on sale!! I set two tables, 9 seats in the kitchen and 10 in the dining room. There will be 19 of us, including two toddlers who don't usually sit much at family dinner.
