As fall settles in all around us, we begin to think about holiday entertaining and decorating for the season. The professionals at Mission Viejo Florist are eager to offer plenty of tips and advice for your fall tablescape this season.
- For a rustic display, use a multitude of nature’s best offerings. Tree branches gathered with burlap or pine cones and acorns scattered across your table runner will give your table a natural autumn essence that you and your guests will enjoy all season.
- Give your dinner party a casual feel by setting up a buffet for your guests, allowing them to mingle among themselves.
- Use a monochromatic color palette for a dramatic effect on your fall table. Choosing just one bold fall color, accented slightly with a contrasting hue (think spicy plum with pops of gold) will create a depth and intrigue your guests won’t soon forget.
Celebrate all of autumn’s delights as you decorate this season. The design experts at Mission Viejo Florist have some great tips and advice to spice up your fall decor this season:
- Include harvest texture throughout your home to add dimension and depth. Natural fall accents like tree branches, crisp fall leaves, berries and acorns will blend gorgeous color with rustic pieces for a woodsy feel.
- Add a peaceful, cozy warmth to your home with rich fall hues like deep burgundy or rust orange. These shades will invite a positive energy into your space.
- Fragrance and light are other ways to lend an autumn essence to your home this fall. Use cinnamon, cloves, and ginger to garnish your centerpieces, or add tea lights among hearty vegetables for an inviting harvest look.
Halloween is rapidly approaching, which can mean more spider webs and skeletons than normal in our decorating schemes. Balance the spooky ambiance with beautiful floral arrangements that evoke an autumnal spirit and will last even after Halloween is over. Choose classy blooms for your office decor or your seasonal holiday party. The designers at Mission Viejo Florist are eager to present our favorite fall creations for you to choose this season.
Bosses Day is a time set aside to honor our employers, the individuals who work hard behind the scenes to make our work life more enjoyable and productive. Started in 1958 by Patricia Bays Haroski, this national observance came into being when she noticed her father- who was also her boss- completing countless jobs in the office to help his employees. Wanting him to be recognized for his efforts, she worked to get National Bosses Day on the calendar on his birthday, October 16th. This year, let Mission Viejo Florist help you choose the ideal gift, plant or floral arrangement for your boss.
