In less than two weeks Thanksgiving, one of the most favorite of holidays, is observed. The origination of Thanksgiving, as we know, dates back to 1621. It was a harsh winter when the Pilgrims first landed in America. They survived largely by the generosity of the Native Americans that shared food with them. To repay their new friends, the Pilgrims held a three day feast. The bounty they shared included dried fruits, boiled pumpkin, turkey, venison and other foods. A slightly different menu from what we are accustomed to but no doubt a delightful feast at that time.
Over the decades the theme of a celebration of harvest has continued to evolve. Today we think of Thanksgiving as a time to give thanks for our foundation of this great Nation. Of course it is also the official start of the holiday season and a special time of fellowship with family and friends.
After consistent encouragement from Sarah Josepha Hale, writer of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”, President Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a nation wide holiday in 1863. There are so many exciting events also that are associated with Thanksgiving. If you are a sports fan there are numerous professional and collegiate football games. More of a shopping fan? Black Friday was created just for you! Another great tradition is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Put on hold during World War II, it has been a regular occurrence since that time.
Our professional and talented floral designers at Flowerama Columbus would be honored to assist you with a gift for someone hosting Thanksgiving. That is a major undertaking and any assistance can be so appreciated! We have the freshest flowers and plants and the most delicious gift baskets!
Today, Flowerama Columbus has three generations of family members and every single one has worked in the flower shops at one point of their lives. In fact, at least one member from each generation is currently working in the flower shops in one way or another. Now this is not always the case, because some of our youngest generation travels off to college from time to time, but they often help out if only at the holidays. Flowerama Columbus offers four great locations where you can shop. However, if you prefer online shopping, we have made a large investment in our computer system allowing you the a user friendly environment to browse our products and then have them shipped any where in the country.
If you prefer a sweet treat to give someone hosting Thanksgiving, Flowerama Columbus teamed up with Cheryl’s Cookies in early 2013. These delicious cookies are available for delivery anywhere in Columbus Ohio. Available for sale and consumption at the Reynoldsburg, Westerville, and Columbus Flowerama locations with the Whitehall Flowerama location coming soon. The perfect marriage of two great companies; our customers now have a choice between the freshest flowers or the freshest cookies and they can all be delivered the same day throughout Columbus.
