Mums: A Sweet Fall Accent

No stranger to the pots at your front door or the garden bed, mums are, come Fall, the go-to flower. This blooming plant is everywhere during the season, owing to its hardiness (frost-proof nature), preference for shorter days and availability. But we at Mission Viejo Florist love to see the ubiquitous bloom worked into stylish arrangements, acknowledged for its texture and spirited sensibility. So we’re shining a light on everyone’s favorite Fall flower and taking it from the front steps to the dining room table.

Given its approachable nature, a mum of any variety added to an arrangement will bring a cheerful spirit to the whole design. That doesn’t mean your mum-accented centerpiece can’t be elegant; just take a look at our Field Picked Autumn Bouquet, which is a serene sea of yellows, pastel oranges and peaches, with mums popping up here and there to balance out the more romantic blooms. Tied simply with raffia and presented in a glass vase, the fresh, easy and yet stylish vibe of a centerpiece like this feels grounded but still grown up enough for an occasion.

Look for floral designs that include the wide variety of mums out there, all of which introduce more texture and spirit to the flowers they share space with. The range of color options available really works for Fall, too. We at Mission Viejo Florist are happy to help you pick the perfect arrangement for your Fall table.
