Don't Let Your Flowers Fall Flat This Season:
Best Floral Arrangements for Fall
It might still feel like summer, but autumn is on its way, and with a new season comes a new color scheme for floral arrangements. All of the colors that we associate with autumn provide a warm, cozy, and gorgeous color scheme for this season's flowers. Whether you're looking for a wedding bouquet, some new flowers for your dining room table, or simply a gift for a friend, arranging flowers for autumn can be done in a variety of ways. However, before arranging, it's important to know what kind of flowers are best for the season.
Before you can get to arranging the beautiful autumn bouquets of your dreams, it's important to know what blooms best during this season. Oranges, reds, and yellows are all staples in an autumn bouquet, but not every fall arrangement needs to incorporate those three colors. Dahlias, though they bloom in the fall, come in a wide variety of colors and thus make arranging to your specific color scheme simple. Chrysanthemums, on the other hand, while coming in a variety of colors, tend to lean toward the traditional autumn spectrum of deep reds, purples, and oranges. Once you're familiar with the types of flowers that bloom best during the autumn, you can start to conceptualize what kind of bouquet you want to create with your florist. Flowers typically make up 7-8% of a wedding budget, but every bride has her own unique style, so the details are ultimately up to their decision. Some of the most beautiful autumn bouquets don't even incorporate flowers, but instead focus on berries, leaves, and other autumnal items to create that perfect, rustic fall look. However, deep reds and purples are always a great complement to a white wedding dress.
A flower delivery for the home should be something that's going to last a long time in a vase or jar. Chrysanthemums are a great option if you're looking at local flower shops. In addition, dahlias are a lovely bloom to keep in a vase, and since they come in so many colors, they're a welcome addition to any room.
If you have questions about what kind of floral arrangement to create, collaborating with your local florist is a great way to learn more about the beautiful blooms of autumn.
