The beauty of fall lies in its astonishing colors: red, orange, yellow, and brown mix together to give us spectacular combinations. People often admire photos of forests with falling leaves and wish they could bring the outdoors into their homes.
Well, you can! With beautiful flower arrangements that combine the auburn and copper shades of autumn, we can bring fall to our homes.
Choose Fall Colors and Seasonal Flowers
Many flowers come in fall colors: red, sienna, burnt orange, and deep yellows remind us of fall. Chrysanthemums and dahlias come in astonishing and various colors. You just need to choose the ones that speak of fall, pumpkins, and hot cocoa.
Flowers in subdued colors such as old rose mix well with autumn foliage and give a slight touch of autumnal melancholy to your bouquets. And don’t forget the great and colorful selection of roses: when blended with other colors, they bring out the beauty of the bouquet and add timelessness to your botanical arrangement.
For a tone of brightness, think of yellow sunflowers, colorful amaranths, anemones, cosmos, warm-colored marigolds, and ranunculus. They each add different shapes and lovingly frame a bouquet.
Fall doesn’t mean there is no greenery. For green and vibrant foliage embracing your flower arrangement, consider olive branches and ivy.
Think Outside the (Botanical) Box
Autumn gives us amazing fruit, berries, and produce that can be used in flower arrangement to provide beautiful texture to the final result. Think of apples in various colors, pumpkins, persimmons, and even pomegranates. Don’t forget pine cones for their earthy looks. Add firethorns to your botanical composition for their shiny red berries.
How About Dried Leaves?
As leaves falling on the ground dry up, they remind us of the pleasure of walking in the forest in autumn. Add dried sycamore or maples leaves for an extra touch: you will feel like a whole autumnal forest has gently moved into your living room.
Fall hues and muted tones are not just for flowers. Remember to add ribbons in matching colors to highlight your flower arrangements.
Also think of using a gold, auburn, or orange vase to add depth to the colors. And if you are looking for a natural material to wrap your flower composition, think of burlap: its natural and raw feel will be the perfect finishing touch.
