Miss Daisy, located at 3710 West Desert Inn Road, is a woman-owned fine floral and gift studio. Owner and Las Vegas Native Jessica Marshall is a former New York City fashion buyer who attended the New York Flower School and returned home to bring a fresh take to the local floral industry. Not your average florist, Miss Daisy’s “low and lush” style is based upon the most premium imported flowers. The floral shop’s signature custom items include fresh flower walls and flower crown activations. And its creative designers are trained to use unique fresh florals with modern and contemporary styling for same-day gift deliveries, corporate events, weddings, social events, dinner parties, and holiday celebrations.

What is the latest trend in Thanksgiving floral arrangements?

There are so many wonderful ways to dress your Thanksgiving table this year. Depending on the size and shape of your table, you can play off of the textures and patterns of the season. One of our favorite trends right now is layering big playful blooms with textured accent florals and creating a garden-styled, low and lush arrangement. The season lends itself to flowers with saturated colors of fiery reds, rich burgundies, and vibrant oranges of autumn. Monochromatic and mono-botanical florals are a modern and contemporary way to style your centerpiece. Although it isn’t necessarily trendy, the cornucopia is a traditional style for this time of year that is making a great comeback!

What tips do you have for someone looking to up their centerpiece game?

Leave it to your favorite florist to create a show-stopping centerpiece for you. The ideal table centerpiece should never block guests' views of one another. A low container is just what's needed, leaving room for lavish helpings of florals. Keep your florals away from heat and ensure the water in the vase is always filled to the top and with no greenery inside (greenery in water creates bacteria and shortens the lifespan of your arrangement).

What details would be helpful for you to know from a customer before creating an arrangement for them?

It’s always helpful to know where the floral arrangement will be placed in the home, the shape of the table that the florals will be on so we can match the perfect vase with it, and the recipient’s favorite colors and flower varieties. We love creating custom, one-of-a-kind arrangements using seasonal blooms imported from all over the world.

Are there flowers that have a thankful or grateful symbolism?

There are so many! Sweet pea (which happens to be my favorite flower) means “thank you for a lovely time.” In Japanese society, hydrangea means “thank you for understanding,” while the pink hydrangea symbolizes heartfelt emotion. And pink and peach roses symbolize gratitude and appreciation.
