Getting the Right Flowers for Your Thanksgiving Table Arrangement

Choosing the right flowers are key to having a thanksgiving centerpiece or gift that shows your gratitude and carries a “Happy Thanksgiving” message. It’s the thought that counts after all, and those thoughts should lead you to ask what color, size, and type of flowers you want for a Thanksgiving or fall flower arrangement.   

Types of Thanksgiving Flowers for Your Arrangement

Pink roses are a perfect way to show admiration and appreciation for your loved ones this Thanksgiving. They symbolize gratitude, grace, and thoughtfulness and offer a feeling of gentleness. 

Hydrangeas symbolizes gratitude for being understood. They are sincerely heartfelt flowers that represent grace and beauty as well. Hydrangeas also radiate abundance because of the lavish number of flowers and the generous round shape of the flower. Its colors symbolize love, harmony, and peace.

These flowers pair beautifully together and compliment each other in the home. Our Fleura Vase with mixed hydrangea, as well as our Serene Porcelain Vase with hot pink, pink, or blush Eternity® roses, bring an essence of thankfulness and beauty to your soiree. Each beautiful arrangement has real flowers that are low maintenance and that will last an entire year.    

Here are some more flowers that represent gratitude and thankfulness:

  • Campanulas
  • Dianthus Carnations
  • Eustoma
  • Sweet Pea
  • Globe Flowers

Colors of Gratitude for Your Thanksgiving Centerpiece

For a fall flower arrangement that is more geared towards Thanksgiving,  use deep tones, fall colors, and the soft colors of gratitude. There are a number of colors that represent gratitude and giving thanks that go great with the traditional orange, yellows, reds, and purples that we often see at Thanksgiving.

  • Blush symbolizes appreciation, elegance, and gratefulness. 
  • A hot pink color brings an essence of thoughtfulness and a little femininity. 
  • Pearl symbolizes thoughtfulness, gracefulness, and perfection. 
  • The Neapolitan color signifies gratefulness, tenderness, and also calmness.


Arrangements such as our signature Small Round box, with roses in orange, red, gold, or another autumnal tone provide a beautiful array of colors while offering a chance to bring in the lighter colors above to pay homage to emotions of gratitude. This is a great option for an arrangement that’s sure to fit on the table with your thanksgiving dinner. However, if you have the table space and would like something more grand, our Le Plein is a classic option that will brighten the entire aura of the room. Go with some of the more malleable fall colors or an arrangement in white or pearl for a centerpiece that will go with your dining room year-round.
