This is a beautiful, eye-catching arrangement for a Thanksgiving party, or you can skip the pumpkin for a special occasion bouquet. Play with decorating with dried greenery, oak leaves, acorns, figs and ornamental cabbage, cinnamon sticks – they will add seasonal touch and enticing smell to the floral arrangement.

Festive and Playful

For a simple elegance and youthful allure, mix some fuchsia or red tulips with white and green flowers and plants and create a stunning Christmas floral décor.
