When thinking of fall decor, so often the first things we imagine are pumpkins and gourds. But fall florals can be a lovely way to celebrate all the season has to offer. Last week I had a dinner party which gave me the opportunity to enjoy a medley of fall floral arrangements.In the kitchen I did a grouping of rich vibrant jewel tones. A base of honey colored mums served as the underpinning upon which claret gerber daisies were set. The pairing was then punctuated with two-toned roses which emphasized the warm depth of the palette. Bits of greenery finished off the simple cluster.The arrangement was gathered in a mercury glass container and set next to a simple white bowl filled with fruits that mirrored the floral palette.
Outside on our deck, a looser more casual arrangement was placed, with a bit brighter color feeling and more variation in shape. I actually have no idea what most of these flowers are called, so by all means help me out in the comments below. I can always count on my readers to fill in the missing information, attributable to my limited botanical knowledge.Of course, I recognize the sunflowers that add cheer to this grouping, a true fall signal that looks lovely bounced off of the pinks in the mix.
On the dining room table, I often use two or three arrangements. This time I used a pair, rich in tone and delightfully lush, albeit low enough to allow conversation to flow above them.The base of these clusters were cherry red roses warmed by their placement next to cinnamon hued dahlias. Leaves in both mossy green and aubergine added much to the presentation. The little green berries (name?) bring a harvest feel to the floral.
A pop of sunny yellow adds a nice surprise.I’m a huge fan of fresh flowers and I often can’t get enough of them. I enjoy following the seasons with my arrangements and in the upcoming weeks, the reds and burgundies you see here will be replaced by oranges and coppers. Something to look forward to, indeed.
