California Flower Mall petalers talk turkey about their Thanksgiving Day flowers design talent with a city block wide parade of holiday tablescape floral arrangements. The 25 vendor Downtown LA wholesale flower market is open Thanksgiving Day 5 am – 12 noon. Convenient Thanksgiving Day hours give last minute budget minded shoppers a way to save on gorgeous, top quality flowers fresh from farms designed in a variety of festive bouquets and creative Thanksgiving flower arrangements.

“Thanksgiving week has become a competitive design challenge for many CFM flower vendors to showcase their talent. They create a wide variety of flower bouquets, arrangements and lush cut flower product designs that people are not likely to find all in one place, especially on Thanksgiving Day. The whimsical turkey flower arrangements create excitement for families with kids too,” says Mark Chatoff, owner and president of the 825 San Pedro Street flower market. He says CFM’s Downtown LA wholesale flower market petalers start Thanksgiving week filling trade, restaurant and event catering customer orders. Meanwhile, flower designers cook up a selection of some of the most stunning, creative, colorful, zany Thanksgiving flower designs in Los Angeles’s 8 block Flower District community for their DIY customers and to satisfy their own artistic urge. Many offer Thanksgiving holiday flower designs that transition into Christmas décor. A wide selection of Christmas holiday plants and flowers are available for those that want to jump on their Christmas decorating. CFM is also open on Black Friday 4:30 am-4:30 pm., he says.

Chatoff offers these tips for last minute DIY Thanksgiving decorators buying top quality fresh flowers at deep discount prices direct from flower market sources:

  • Deliver Pinterest ideas or images of custom decor orders to vendors early in the week
  • Give cooks a break – take the kids to CFM on Thanksgiving morning to pick a bouquet or centerpiece
  • Fresh flower centerpieces are self-contained — no vase or prep work is needed – water it every other day
  • Bring cash for the best prices – CFM has an ATM on the premises
  • Bargain – don’t take the first price offered for harvest theme flowers on Thanksgiving morning
