Autumn blooms to welcome the season

Summer is quickly behind us as we prepare for winter. September marks the beginning of autumn and there will be a noticeable drop in temperatures and the shortening of the days before you see the trees drop their leaves. While some may not like the idea of ​​saying goodbye to summer, others know that this is another beautiful season that should be enjoyed. Not to mention all the amazing autumn blooms that can be found in your garden or at your local florist.

Seasonal blooms

Baby’s breath, or baby’s breath, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums and gladioli bloom at this time of year. By choosing seasonal flowers from your florist, you will get fresh flowers that will last a long time and prove to be a beautiful bouquet of autumn blooms. Although hydrangeas can be displayed on their own, they can also be used to create the basis of larger arrangements, such as funeral crosses and other tributes. Some other flowers that may not be in season but are still available include roses, dahlias, and lilies.

Seasonal colours

When displaying autumn blooms during this exciting season, it is also important to choose the right colours. The most popular use of flowers at this time are those that remind us of rustic decorations. This means that you should avoid bright colours and pastels. Instead, choose orange shades like pumpkin, mustard-like yellows, and even dark, deep reds. You can add olive greens to your bouquets and even white flowers for a strong colour contrast.

Seasonal vase

Not only is it important to choose the right autumn blooms, but you need to make sure that they are presented in the best possible vase or container. Look for something like a clay pot. The earthy tone of a clay pot is just what autumn bouquets need. You can even use a hollowed out pumpkin or wrap a flat glass jar with dried twigs and secure it with raffia. Your vase should match your surroundings this season, and that means looking for earthy shades and materials.

Don’t forget that autumn blooms are also made more attractive by adding accessories such as trees, pine cones, berries, and even feathers. Place small pumpkins on wooden skewers and place them in a bouquet or place pumpkins and gourds at the bottom of the vase for a beautiful effect.
