Poet William Cullen Bryant once wrote the words “autumn is the year’s last, loveliest smile”. He was probably inspired by fall colors and the few remaining days of seasonable temperatures before winter, just as many are today. Autumn florals add warmth and cozy ambiance to our homes, even if we may not experience the change in climate as drastically as those around the country. We still love the shift in seasonal vibe, the fiery colors, and the approach of some of our most beloved holidays. Mission Viejo Florist loves to celebrate the new season with bouquets and arrangements representative of this special time of year.
Popular Autumn Florals
Anything in gold, orange, and red is perfect for fall centerpieces and arrangements, but mums, asters, sunflowers and fall roses are all especially popular.
Whether an eye-catching centerpiece, a stunning bouquet for the living room, or a gift for an autumn birthday, fall flowers in rich tones are the perfect choice. Yellow sunflowers, orange roses, red lilies – and other beauties such as asters, mums, solidago (goldenrod) and snapdragons – combine to make warm and inviting arrangements which provide a colorful accent reflective of the season.
It’s in the Details
Designing bouquets with fall florals also gives us a great opportunity to experiment with fun and whimsical accents, such as purple kale, maple leaves, wheat sheaves, hypericum berries, and even artichokes and gourds. Wicker baskets add a rustic touch which perfectly expresses the cozy ambiance of this season.
The first days of fall remind us that a very special time of year is here – and there is no need to wait until the holidays begin to decorate! Fall florals are a stylish and beautiful way to transform your home for the season, and everything you need is right here at Mission Viejo Florist.
