The race is on. Thanksgiving is over. The lights are up. The poinsettias are displayed. You braved the crowds of “Black Friday” at the mall….or did you?

Last week while wearing my flip-flops in the almost 70° weather, I was greeted by a Salvation Army bell-ringer rocking out to a recording of “Feliz Navidad” at the entrance to Grand Central. As I cut through the station to hop on the Times Square Shuttle, I glanced toward Vanderbilt Hall and noticed the kiosks of the Holiday Fair were in full swing. As I neared the Shuttle platform, I found the platform decorated like a candy cane with the train itself advertising the latest Christmas movie.

This weekend, I shared my husband’s Thanksgiving pumpkin pie recipe with ginger streusel crust. As you know, my husband’s idea of “abundance” is a bit exaggerated, and it’s not uncommon for us to have 15 desserts to gobble up on Thanksgiving Day!
To start Thanksgiving week off right, I’m sharing one more of my husband’s delicious Thanksgiving dessert recipes. This one will appeal to anyone with a love of chocolate, and it’s a Thanksgiving favorite of my mom’s and Aunt Joan’s!

I have a lot to be thankful for. I live in the greatest city in the world (New York!). I have a challenging and exciting job that engages my intellect and creativity. I have wonderful family and friends who fill my life with laughter. And I am blessed with a husband who is not only kind and handsome, but also a gifted cook with a passion for pie (recipe below). For me, Thanksgiving is the best day of the year!
A Wealth of Thanksgiving Pies
Years ago, my husband and I decided to bring the party to us and began hosting Thanksgiving dinner in our own apartment. In the first year, it was just me, my husband, my mom & dad, my aunt, and 2 last minute guests: my cousin Bob and his NYFD colleague (with their radios, in case they had to go deal with an emergency). My husband has a warped sense of abundance, so he created at least 5 giant desserts that year for all 7 of us, including a gloriously beautiful pecan pie and a spicy pear and quince crisp. He was a triumph! [Read more →]

Warm oranges, radiant yellows, velvety burgundies and rich browns – it’s a pleasure to design Thanksgiving flower arrangements with the delicious, luxurious palette of autumn. And Thanksgiving’s glorious grand season finale gives us a wonderful o
pportunity to celebrate the beauty of fall!
The Perfect Setting: Thanksgiving Flower Arrangements
Create a sense of amazing abundance with a dramatic display of food and flowers!
A low, lush Thanksgiving centerpiece for the dining table or a tall, elegant Thanksgiving flower arrangement for the buffet will impress your friends and family and add welcoming warmth to your table.
If your table is too full of delectable platters of turkey and sweet potatoes, here are some great ways to add autumn accents without taking up too much space:
Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas
- Layer autumn leaves down the center of your table to create a colorful and organic table runner.
- Hollow out mini gourds and pumpkins and use as bud vases for autumn-toned blossoms.
- Fill clear glass vases with water and add small berries like cranberries or holly berries and float single blossoms or floating candles.
- Accent platters and buffets with fruits that highlight the colors of the season and celebrate the bounty of the harvest– vibrant clementines, petite lady apples, clusters of grapes
- Place dried Indian Corn at each place setting and at strategic points along the table.

Appreciate the Beauties of the Autumn Season

the chrysanthemum bud
Every autumn, my husband notes that the fastest time of year is the time between Labor Day and Halloween. One day you are sitting in your shorts eating barbequed chicken, and the next school is starting, the nights grow colder, the heat goes on in the building, Christmas decorations go up next to the Halloween candy at the store, and you still haven’t taken your winter clothes down from storage!
To help slow down time and focus on the beautiful but fleeting autumn season, I thought I’d talk about our favorite blossom for fall floral arrangements: the chrysanthemum! [Read more →]
