Whether you are decking your own table or showing gratitude to a special host, flowers are the perfect way to say “thank you” this holiday season. While harvest time might not bring to mind thoughts of classical floral arrangement, there are plenty of picks to match your autumnal mood. Here are a few things to keep in mind when making your selection.
Nothing says “autumn” like those trademark autumn colors! Rich reds, spicy browns, yellows that pop, mellow orange, and don’t forget the sprig of green. When searching for your arrangement, keep in mind that a gradient of color can be made to match most fall decor. This is particularly important to remember when bringing flowers as a gift. The Harvest Spice Bouquet combines color with a pop of cinnamon to spice things up!
Look for arrangements that incorporate classical symbols of fall: cornucopias, gourds, and leaves. The contrast between seasonal objects and fresh flowers brings an element of surprise into the design. The Country Pumpkin arrangement is particularly whimsical because it is placed in a reusable ceramic pumpkin. Once the flowers have been enjoyed, the pumpkin can become a part of your host’s decor for years to come.
Think about the shape of the space where the arrangement will be placed. Is it tall? Long? Wide? Make certain that your pick matches its new home. For a centerpiece, you may want something long and slender rather than tall: it will look more “at home” on the table, and is less likely to block guests’ faces and prevent cross-table conversation. The Fields of Europe for Fall Centerpiece arrangement is perfect for adding a touch of class to any dinner table without hindering eye contact.
When all else fails, go for the drama! Candles can be a great accessory to an arrangement; not only do they provide dramatic illumination, but they also smell lovely. The Harvest Hurricane Centerpiece is the perfect blend of vibrant color, and built-in lighting.
No matter your floral choice, we hope that your holiday is bountiful and bright!
