Nothing perks up a room like gorgeous greenery and flowers. With our new stay-at-home-more routines, finding a talented florist can do wonders for the soul. Start by decorating your Thanksgiving table with a fall-themed centerpiece to set the seasonal mood and offer a change of tropical scenery. Here are just a few of the many innovative floral designers in our region.
Perhaps you’re experiencing quarantine cooking fatigue and can’t bear to look at pots and pans this holiday. Leave the prep to local restaurants and caterers while supporting our hospitality scene hit hard by the pandemic. Avocado Grill’s three-course feast features avocado-themed dishes, naturally. Chef’s Table is always a reliable source, and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon’s prix-fixe delicacies include caviar, foie gras and his signature mashed potatoes.
It’s hard to beat a homemade pie from scratch, but these local bakers come through when you’re in a pinch. Fireman Derek’s is whipping up classics including apple pie topped with the house streusel and trendier options like salted caramel pie. Importico’s is taking orders for apple, pumpkin and pecan pies as well as pumpkin loaf cake. Sweet Rustic is baking pumpkin and apple crumb pies.
Skip the production altogether with Eau Palm Beach’s Thanksgiving Escape Package. The Forbes Five-Star resort offers three nights in a standard resort view room; a five-course Thanksgiving Day dinner for two (more guests can be accommodated) with live entertainment and a complimentary bar in its Ocean Ballroom; breakfast for two at Temple Orange; welcome cocktails for two, and complimentary valet.
Thank You For Giving
Thanksgiving holds even more meaning during this difficult year, so don’t forget those in need in our community. Several local food banks and charities are taking donations throughout the holiday season and beyond. Consider supporting them by dropping off nonperishable food items, funding hot meals for Thanksgiving Day and helping with any other necessities whether goods or services.
