If you’re looking to try something new for Thanksgiving this year, think about trying to create a historically-accurate Thanksgiving with traditional food, clothing and decor from the original Thanksgiving. Take some time to do a little research or invite children to participate in discovering what foods, drinks and other items were served at the first Thanksgiving. Dress up as pilgrims or Native Americans and dress your table as it would have been decorated in Plymouth. The floral experts at Norton’s Florist have a beautiful collection of fall centerpieces that will go perfectly with your historic Thanksgiving this year.

Now that fall has arrived, we begin to think about decorating for holiday and seasonal gatherings. If you want a stylish, creative tablescape to enjoy all season, take a look at some of these great tips and advice from the creative experts at Norton’s Florist.
Use a few key fall colors like shades of chocolate and pumpkin, a burlap table runner and clear candlesticks topped with mini pumpkins instead of candles. The simplicity of this design will give off a calm, peaceful ambiance for you and your guests.
Design a tablescape with a collection of ceramic and real pumpkins in all white, blue or yellow to create an elegant seasonal table.
Use candles to define space across your table and leave a visually stunning impression. Tall tapers, short round tri-wicks, tealights and mid-sized candles, all in the same shade of autumn neutrals, will create a lovely effect. Read More about Harvest Flowers At The Heart Of Your Table

Each October, we take a day to recognize all of the hard-working bosses out there who do everything they can to make our work lives easier. Bosses Day began in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski realized her boss- who was also her father- was performing countless tasks daily that simply went unnoticed. She chose his birthday, October 16th, as National Bosses Day and it was made official in 1962. Thanks to her efforts, we now honor those bosses who truly care for the employees in their care. Norton’s Florist is ready for this special occasion with flowers, plants and gifts that will show your boss how grateful you are for everything they do each day.
