At our shop, both Thanksgiving and Christmas are quite busy times for us with folks wanting to send and receive floral centerpieces for their dinner tables. When I talk to other shops from around the country, some are busier than us while others say that no one in their area is interested in having flowers for their home during the holiday season. What camp do you fall under? Do you like to have flowers on your table? What about sending flowers to family and friends that you are not able to share the holiday with?
As you can see by the photo of Kevin above, our shop was quite busy during the Thanksgiving holiday and this photo was taken on Wednesday and although it was not all the deliveries that we made, just the first round of deliveries for the 4 drivers working that day.
For me, I can't imagine not having something fresh on my dining room table and that goes back to long before I was in the floral business. Marking special moments in our lives is so important and although flowers don't last forever, they sure do brighten their lives. Take the table centerpiece below, that's my dining room and I snapped a quick photo before I swept this piece up to bring to my Brothers house for Thanksgiving dinner. I must have had ESP because this arrangement looked amazing on my Sister-in-Laws purple table cloth!!
