3 Types of Fall Flowers

Fall typically conjures up images of traditional autumn colors, taken from pumpkins, squash, gourds, or the changing colors of leaves. Those colors translate into flowers, and you will find many different types of flowers to use for centerpieces, to place on end tables, console tables, or anywhere else where you’d like to bring that seasonal feeling into your home.

The Country Pumpkin Bouquet from your Denver Florist, Veldkamp’s, represents the essence of fall, by using a ceramic pumpkin in place of a vase, and filling it with Gerbera daisies in orange, golden-colored mums and pom poms, and burnt orange or brown daisies. The addition of greenery, yellow leaves and berries make this the perfect choice to grace your dining room table, to create a focal point on your living room coffee table, or on a console table at the entrance to your home.

Although people tend to think of mums when thinking about fall flowers, there are countless other possibilities that can add the harvest warmth to any area of your home. A tall vase filled with giant yellow sunflowers, or a small vase filled with yellow, brown, or orange daisies will look lovely on a small table in the kitchen.

Day-lilies are always abundant, and you may even still have orange day-lilies in bloom in your back or front yard. Golden colored yarrow is the perfect addition to a fall bouquet, or to use on its own, and the best part of choosing yarrow is that you can dry it and display it all season long.

If you’re looking for something more formal, don’t discount the possibility of using roses. There are spectacular roses in ivory, yellow, many shades of orange, or deep red that will create that harvest feeling, while maintaining the formal feeling that is associated with roses.

When choosing flowers for any occasion throughout autumn, embrace the colors of the season, and think about those lush, earthy, warm and inviting colors that you’ll see everywhere as the leaves on trees, shrubs, and other plants change color. Don’t be afraid to combine different colors and different kinds of flowers. The harvest is all about abundance, and you can use that in creating other beautiful arrangements to transform your house into a warm and inviting home.
