Thanksgiving Flowers and Centerpieces

My good friend Holly, who is an excellent flower arranger was invited to my house , with her family for Thanksgiving dinner. Somehow , her daughters thought it would be more meaningful to spend the holiday as a family at their lake house. I can't say that I think it is a good idea. Plus I will miss them, and they will miss the turkey and all the trimmings,plus the standing rib roast with Yorkshire Pudding. I am a pretty good cook. Just ask my husband. Good food yes, but a Thanksgiving table should have a proper center piece. What am I going to do now?

I called Holly to tell her she can be excused form Thanksgiving dinner but she still has to help me with my flowers. She happily agreed. Today she gave me a list of things to buy. Lady apples, cranberries, gourds, red grapes, black grapes, green grapes, gourds, a large bag of mixed nuts in their shells, small pears and mums. Look how beautiful the arrangements look. Thanks, Holly. There is always room at my table if you change your mind.
