A Different Kind of Thanksgiving

We’re not going to lie. Our creative flame was a bit burned out when we began planning our Thanksgiving 2020 shoot. Usually, this is one of our favorite shoots, it’s something we look forward to every year. But this time around, we couldn’t help but feel different. On one hand, we don’t feel comfortable promoting big gatherings. It just doesn’t feel right or the responsible thing to do. On the other hand, are people even thinking about celebrating right now?

We meditated for several days and realized that the reason we love what we do is that, no matter what, our products evoke emotions. Flowers have the power to brighten up anyone’s day. So, maybe if we worked with flowers for this shoot we would feel better and transmit those positive emotions to our friends, colleagues, and community.         

In a nutshell: there’s no reason why you wouldn’t want to have beautiful flowers on this day!

Flowers are for everyone, they serve a purpose for any occasion, and they are the perfect holiday accessory! We partnered with Say Sukii Flowers, Mindful Mani Salon, and Flour & Weirdoughs Bakery to create our 2020 Thanksgiving Shoot. Since Fall in Miami usually means temperatures above 75 degrees, we decided to go for a (covid safe) rustic picnic.

Using some of our warehouse pallets, we created a “table” and added flowers and greenery all around. You can easily recreate this look! All you need to do is stack pallets on top of each other until you get your desired height. You might not be cooking a turkey for 10+ people this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a delicious meal! Bake some goodies or go to your local bakery and buy pastries, quiches, or even some delicious sourdough bread!

For flower arrangements, use different textures and colors. You could even dry some of your flowers beforehand and add them to your centerpiece. Whether you’re going for something traditional ordifferent, all types of fall colors and flowers will work for you! We played around with a floral installation on a bicycle, got the best holiday-themed manicures, and even got to sample some delicious treats.

But the best blessing of all was having Simba, Sukii’s 8-year-old daughter on set. Simba reminded us that the food, the number of people that come, and the extravagant decorations are not important. She showed us that what matters most is to transmit positive energy and to be thankful for the little things in life.

This Thanksgiving, we thank our customers for their continued support, we are grateful for the amazing flower community we have built throughout these months and we feel so blessed to be able to help people express feelings through flowers.

Oh, and Simba, thank you for inspiring us every day with your wisdom and for reminding us to have fun!
