Visiting the Flower Mart

Gentle Friends, continuing our Thanksgiving Eve........ after we left the Mall we headed to the SF Flower Mart.  I've talked about it here in other Posts, but it is a lovely place and so much to see......

..... there is just tons of Christmas greenery everywhere including box wood, magnolia, all sorts of different pine, cedar, eucalyptus..... you name it and it can be found here......

..... there were lots of lovely wreaths, catering to all kinds of different tastes..... 

.... we were after flowers and came away with some really nice ones.....

.... but we'll be back to pick up some poinsettias and garland and maybe a wreath or two next weekend!!

Here's my annual snap of our Thanksgiving gathering, we sat down to dinner around 3 pm......   Turkey, dressing, sweet potato souffle, squash casserole, green bean casserole (a request), cranberry sauce, biscuits..... followed by Dot's Pumpkin Pie, Banana cream pie and Chocolate Mousse (another request).  It was a really lovely meal and a super afternoon!!

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again soon!

Take care,


  1. Looking great! I want to hear more about Squash Casserole--a new one to me! Rico looks like he is so happy here! :D

  2. Great post with the flower mart and your table looks beautiful. I would love to spend a few hours at the flower mart as well as Lupicia. Sounds like a fun day to me!

  3. The flower mart looks wonderful. I would have a hard time choosing an arrangement. Your table looks very inviting. I love the plates on the table and on the wall. Your guests looks like they are having a good time. On a side note, I've ordered some of your White Christmas tea from Lupicia and I'm going to try it hot! I may wish I had ordered more....said they had a limited supply.


  4. The flower market looks so lovely! I love the variety of wreaths available for purchase. But what stops me in my tracks is your lovely plate display on your walls. I'm in love! Glad you had a good Thanksgiving!

  5. Those magnolia wreaths are gorgeous .... and the flowers... breath taking! Hard to imagine flowers outside when you live in freezing Mi.

  6. It looks and sounded like a great Thanksgiving! I always love the visits to your flower market!!

  7. The flower mart has so many beautiful selections, and your Thanksgiving photo is a lovely one Edgar! You do so many fun things - thank you for sharing them!

  8. That flower market brings back memories of the flower stalls in the markets in Mexico. I always loved looking at all the selections.
    And the snap of the gathering is great. Everyone looks to be enjoying the day.
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. Oh what beautiful wreaths! I wish we someplace like that around here. Your Thanksgiving gathering looks wonderful.

  10. Look at Rico's sweet mug! He always makes me smile :) I'd have saliva drooling down my chin were I in the picture! You set a lovely table Edgar!
