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.

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.
