What is it about the fall season that re-energizes us? The cooler weather? Pumpkin-spiced everything? Halloween? Whatever it is, it’s amazing. Fall is a season like no other where the leaves turn from summer green to dark, rich, jewel-toned autumn hues that shimmer beneath blue skies. Harvest festivals, bobbing for apples, giving thanks, and football are also part of this season. It’s a time of different aromas, textures, colors, holidays, fun activities, and great weather. Here at Gainan’s Flowers, we love fall for the amazing flowers and love creating fall-themed bouquets that help welcome the season into your home.

Welcome, October! Our florists at Gainan’s Flowers in Billings, MT, love bobbing for apples, stuffing ourselves with candy corn, going on hayrides, and exploring our way through a haunted corn maze.
You may think that one of the most popular images of Thanksgiving, the cornucopia, came to us by way of the Pilgrims. But we can actually thank Greek mythology for this symbol that now is present on so many Thanksgiving tables.
Of course, Thanksgiving would not be the same without the traditional turkey. As a matter of fact, it is estimated that nearly 95% of us will sit down to turkey this November 27. But was the bird present on the very first Thanksgiving in 1621? We aren’t really sure.
Are you hosting Thanksgiving, or are you looking for the perfect hostess gift for the woman who will host you and yours? Fall flower arrangements are a perfect addition to any Thanksgiving celebration!
