Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas: Flowers

So I think I got myself into more than what I bargained for with this post! I started looking for flower decorations, which got me wondering about which flowers were pictured. After looking around the world wide web for flower arrangements for Thanksgiving, I thought to myself "What types of flowers are considered at Thanksgiving?" There were not many options when I searched, but I did find a post on Choosing the Best Thanksgiving Flowers.

These 4 flowers have the meaning of resemblance or reflection: Adonis, Hydrangea, Rose, Statice

Flowers to celebrate autumn colors:
Black-Eyed Susan, Chrysanthemums, Gerbera Daisy, Lily, Marigold, Poppy

I would include Dahlias, TulipsSunflowers and Mums (pom pom version of the Chrysanthemums).

Your best bet is to get whatever is fresh and available from a local flower shop or farm (support small businesses!) Here are some photo inspirations I found:
