Hosting Thanksgiving? Here’s How To Set That Table

This year, instead of driving yourself and your family crazy creating the perfect Thanksgiving, consider finding ways to enjoy the day and the people in your life with a simplified meal that allows you to relax with the people you’re most thankful for. Order food to be delivered from your favorite restaurant, create a watch list of favorite holiday movies, and settle into a fun evening of family down-time. You can even design a Thanksgiving buffet table in your living room for serving your casual meal, complete with Thanksgiving linens, fancy (but disposable) dinnerware, and a gorgeous centerpiece from Neubauer’s Flowers to cap off the look.

Take Stock Of The Planet’s Riches On Earth Day

This Earth Day (April 22), remember to stop and smell the flowers. We here at Neubauer’s Flowers know it’s usually a cliche, but in this case, it’s more important than ever to appreciate the natural resources and riches our planet offers us, especially in the form of flowers and plants. There are many ways to honor the Earth, including everything from recycling drives, clean-ups, environmental fairs and other events. But we also think it’s a time to embrace nature and to grow something green. Earth Day reminds us to nurture and preserve our environment. Flowers and plants give us the chance to do that in our own small patch of the world.

We’re calling upon you to do something about this sad predicament just ahead of Administrative Professionals Day on April 25. It’s time to refresh and revive those desks to the benefit of everyone in the workplace. It’s time to top those surfaces with plants and flowers.

We know, we know, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” But we here at Neubauer’s Flowers also love to reinvent what is traditional or customary. Take, for example, the Easter basket. You may be thinking of the one filled with chocolate bunnies and Peeps, but we mean the one brimming with blossoms the color of dyed Easter eggs. Baskets signify comfort and plenty. They’re emblematic of this particular holiday, and we love to exchange them. But we also think it’s about time they got a modern update.
