For Thanksgiving this year, think about breaking away from the norm in favor of a holiday to remember. Instead of a formal, indoor dinner, consider moving your Thanksgiving dinner outdoors for a picnic-style dining experience. Set up tables on your patio, in the yard, or even meet up with friends and family at a local park. Your tables can still reflect the essence of Thanksgiving with beautiful linens, stemware and floral accents. The floral artisans at Marco Island Florist have created gorgeous centerpieces for your non-traditional Thanksgiving table. Read More about Warm Up Your Thanksgiving Table
The autumn season is in full swing, and that means plenty of opportunities for seasonal entertaining in your home. The design experts at Marco Island Florist have some great tips for fall decorating and tablescapes that will make your fall gatherings everything you want.
Keep it relaxed by adding elements that are personalized and low-key or keep it a little less-than-perfect, allowing your guests to relax and enjoy the evening.
Don’t let the flowers stay at the center of the table. Add one bloom in a bud vase to each place setting. It will tie the entire look together and guests will love the extra-special touch just for them.
Try adding a bit of shimmer to your fall table for a glossy finish. A gold mesh runner or mirrored serving trays give off just enough shine to feel festive. Read More about Center Your Table In Style

This month brings us the celebration of Sweetest Day, observed on the third Saturday of October each year. This philanthropic day was created by Herbert Birch Kingston in 1922 as a means of distributing a bit of happiness to the downtrodden during the Great Depression. Kingston, a candy company employee, gave candy and treats to orphans, shut-ins and others who had seemingly been forgotten. Today, we observe this day by bringing surprises to those in hospitals, shelters or nursing homes. The professionals at Marco Island Florist are happy to share our wide variety of floral arrangements, plants and gift baskets with you as we help you celebrate Sweetest Day this year.

Did you know that caring for something besides yourself actually increases your ability to listen and show empathy? Studies have shown that taking care of houseplants can help you learn to be attentive to the needs of others, even when they can’t say what they need. By caring for a plant of your own, you are actually taking care of yourself as well and learning to care for those around you. If you’ve never owned plants before, start with something simple and low-maintenance. The Naples-based Marco Island Florist suggests giving plants as gifts, both to yourself and a friend, as another means of self-care. Read More about Self Care Practice Through Plants
