Choosing the Right Fall Flowers
Why is it important to consider choosing the right fall flowers? Aren’t all flowers the same, anyways? Even though we associate fall with leaves falling from trees and the time to start reaching for sweaters and jackers, it is a great time to celebrate with fall flowers. And when you want to give flowers or use them to decorate your home during fall flowers, a little bit extra thought and consideration into them makes a big difference.
Halloween, Thanksgiving, and even the famous Mexican Holiday Dià de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) are holidays celebrated throughout this extremely festive season. Flowers can help contribute to these special holidays and bring people together. Bright orange flowers will make the perfect Halloween bouquet. Show someone how grateful you are during Thanksgiving with a stunning arrangement or centerpiece. Flowers are also a main component involved with celebrating the Day of the Dead.
In this article, we’re going to break down for you how to choose the right fall flowers for all of these occasions. You’ll find that it’s really quite simple and soon you’ll be able to decorate your home with amazing autumn flowers and give your friends and family amazing arrangements these fall holidays.
Flowers for Halloween and Thanksgiving
We mostly associate deep shades of reds, soft oranges, warm yellows, strong auburns with the autumn season. This is because the leaves on the trees turn these colors as they fall to the ground. Pumpkins and squash reveal their beautiful shades of orange, yellow, peach, and green as they ripen to become ready to serve on our dinner plates.
When you’re looking for fall flowers to celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving, aim for those colors and your flowers will be a hit! Use these flowers to decorate your home, both inside and out, and create an environment that is perfect for family and friend gatherings this season. Gift fall flowers at Halloween parties, Thanksgiving celebrations, or even have them delivered to your friend or family member’s doorstep to wish them a happy holiday.
What about Flowers for Dià de los Muertos?
Even though this holiday is centered around the lives of loved ones who have passed away, it’s focus is on remembering their lives and helping them through their spiritual journey beyond. The traditional flower for this holiday is the Marigold (being held in the picture). Day of the Dead flowers are typically in bright shades of orange, yellow, pink, red, and purple.
These flowers are placed on graves and celebratory arrangements known as ofrendas that are made in the memory of loved ones.
