Winter has arrived here in Aspen and with the arrival of the snow and cold also comes a lot of excitement. We are excited about all the things that winter brings – snow, skiing, Winterskol, the X Games and the holidays to name just a few.

At Mountain Flowers, we are particularly excited about the inaugural holiday of the winter season, Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving marks the opening of the ski mountains (yay!) but it is also a time for us to spend time with our families before the holiday rush and to be thankful for all that we have. There is nothing quite like spending your morning skiing and the afternoon cooking and enjoying each other’s company at home.

For us, and so many others, Thanksgiving would not be complete without a beautiful table centerpiece and setting. All of our favorite fall colors are still very present in our shop – rust orange, maple brown, deep plum, golden yellow, perfect peach and beautiful deep green. One of our favorite trends for the Thanksgiving table this year is gold. Beautiful fall flowers in a gold vase contrasted by rustic touches, such as a burlap runner and birch candles, create a table setting that will be stunning and unforgettable. Just add your family, friends and a delicious Thanksgiving meal (and maybe a good bottle of wine!)!
