Seasonal blooms in the month of October
When choosing the perfect bouquet for October, the important thing is to find the prettiest bouquet at the right price. Not all flowers bloom at the same time, which means we have a lovely new variety to choose from every time the weather changes. Of course, there are many types of flowers available all year round, but when they are in season they are much cheaper. These are some of the best seasonal blooms to choose from in October if you’re on a particularly tight budget.
Alstroemeria, or Peruvian lily, is a freckled flower available in various colours. From purple and pink to red, orange, yellow and even white, it’s easy to find the perfect colour that suits you or your recipient’s preferences. In most cases, these seasonal blooms are not usually displayed alone, but they make excellent focal flowers.
Chrysanthemums also come in a multitude of colours and are known for being particularly hardy. Chrysanthemums also come in various sizes, and their many small petals give these seasonal blooms a wonderful texture and full appearance. They flower from late summer and during the milder months of autumn. A bouquet of chrysanthemums looks charming and picturesque in a country style setting. They can also be used as mass flowers in a mixed flower bouquet.
Carnations are known for their shaggy appearance and wide variety of colours. There are also two-tone and striped ones. Like chrysanthemums, carnations can also be displayed alone or together with other types of flowers. When making a bouquet of carnations, you can select just one colour or mix multiple colours. Alternatively, you can add several carnations to a mixed floral arrangement. In this case it is best to opt for carnations of a single colour. For example, you can pair orange-pink carnations with yellow roses and some white lilies. While this bouquet does not consist solely of seasonal blooms, combining the two ensures a long-lasting and affordable bouquet option.
Hydrangeas have a wonderfully long flowering season, from July to November. These flower clusters look stunning and full. Not only can they be displayed on their own, but they can also be used as fantastic fillers as part of mixed bouquets of seasonal blooms.
Like hydrangeas, sunflowers also have a long blooming season. They are available from May to November and are just what every home could use during the less sunny days of autumn. Leave the stems as long as possible and display a bouquet of sunflowers in a clear glass vase for a stunning effect. Of course, smaller sunflowers can also be used as mass flowers in mixed bouquets. Not only are these popular seasonal blooms for October, but they are also excellent for Halloween.
These are a few of the most popular seasonal blooms that you should consider using this month. Not only will seasonal options last longer, but they will also prove more affordable and definitely suited for the seasonal décor.
