Top Thanksgiving Flowers

While Thanksgiving has become synonymous with fall décor like pumpkins, acorns and the transitioning colors of foliage, this season can have even more meaning by decorating with vibrant Thanksgiving flowers and thanksgiving plants. Thanksgiving flowers can be presented as a gift to the host or simply included as centerpieces on the dinner table.

Top Thanksgiving Flowers & Plants

No matter their use, when it comes to flowers for Thanksgiving, there are no set rules as to what you can and cannot use to decorate and celebrate this holiday. So, for those who are preparing to share a Thanksgiving meal with friends, family and loved ones, why not complement the event with beautiful blooms that are a true reflection of this season of giving.


Relaxing mums are an age-old favorite for Thanksgiving celebrations. This wonderful wildflower makes a great statement for both small get-togethers as well as large-scale gatherings. As a preferred flower of the fall, the mum is a long-lasting bloom that is a Thanksgiving Day show-stopper.

The most common colors of mums are red, orange, yellow, purple, pink and white. To create classic combinations, think about coordinating colors. Reds, oranges, yellows and creamy whites work well together, as do purples, pinks and pure whites. Try mixing contrasting colors–orange and purple, or pink and yellow.

Peruvian Lilies

The warm beauty of Peruvian Lilies will brighten anybody’s day! Also known as Alstroemeria Lilies or Lily of the Inca, these fragrant flowers come in a brilliant array of fiery colors, from white and magenta to gold and flaming orange. Other favorite colors include lilac, bronze, and a bright cherry red. They can also be found in bi-color, which combines any two of these colors. Peruvian Lilies have unique leaves that twist and turn downward as they grow, symbolizing the twists and turns that we endure in our friendships. Mixed with summer flowers, they can bring warmth to any room.


Helianthus, also known as sunflowers, are an especially strong and inspirational choice for making a grand appearance during this year’s Thanksgiving festivities. Sunflowers will warm the hearts of your guests and will leave a lasting impression that goes hand-in-hand with such a joyous holiday occasion. Featuring bright, sunny yellow petals, this is a flower that reminds people of the meaning of Thanksgiving.

Gerbera Daisies

Gerbera daisies have long been a staple in the market of cut flowers. The sturdy stems on these blooms don’t hollow out like other cut flowers. They also have an exceptional vase life, usually lasting up to 10 days.

Gerberas come in almost every color. There are different patterns and forms of blooms on the market; some have so many layers of petals that they look like miniature sunflowers. There is variation in center eye color of the bloom with green, cream, or dark brown being most available.

Solid Aster

Make a huge statement with solid aster. Solid aster, with all of its subtle beauty, creates an amazing conversational piece to remember this Thanksgiving. Originating from France, this flower is a hybrid created from Aster and Goldenrod and with its creamy yellow blooms and subtle fall greenery, creates an excellent focal point within any room. This is especially true for dinner tables or living rooms where loved ones may gather together and create memories. Solid aster can even serve as the perfect backdrop for Thanksgiving Day family pictures! A solid aster arrangement is both a fun and festive way to decorate and celebrate this holiday season.
