Bouquets this fall are richer in texture, combining many different varieties of flowers and coordinating them with hot color schemes. Classic flowers are being mixed with velvety and feathery coxcomb, berries, ferns, lotus pods and woolly lamb’s ear leaves are turning flowers into mesmerizing displays for weddings and the home. Statements are in; poppies with dark centers clearly tell us that summer is long gone and invite us to celebrate in these exciting and inticing fall colors. Classic flowers are also popular, with interesting fall tones in burgundy, red, plum and orange being opted for this coming season, not to mention roses which are always a good choice.

Creating Antique Hydrangeas

Antique hydrangeas are popular too, and give a lovely vintage feel to an event or naturally to the hydrangeas growing in your garden. They will antique as summer turns to fall; the blooms will fade and if you continue watering they will change color quite quickly, particularly with the colder nights drawing in. Antique hydrangeas are a beautiful addition to any display and if you grow them in your own garden you can simply wait until the blossoms become rigid, before cutting them and placing into a vase of water for a week. After this time, don’t refill the vase, simply watch the hydrangea dry out and antique perfectly and it will last a good long while. Tips such as these can be found in good gardening guides, whether you want to care for your perennials or create the best displays for all seasons and will help you to hone your gardening skills and ensure you have the most enviable garden displays of all your friends and family.

Wedding Trends

The trend this fall is for woodland themes, motifs and garlands to create a setting that echoes the outdoors. Green shades are being mixed together with other earthy hues to create a palette that is warm and very much eco friendly. Oranges, reds and plums complement this idea very well and give the richness you need for that perfect fall wedding. Ivory in a natural but warm tone is also popular. Dahlias, peonies, lily of the valley and celiosa are great choices this fall with their impressive blooms and professionals are mixing wide-open flowers with buds and accessories such as wheat stalks and feathers to create more texture.

The hot trend is for greenery such as garland chair swags and even moss table runners and displays include seasonal fruit to really accentuate fall themes. Fall is the perfect season to celebrate the harvest within your wedding and many brides are opting for these fresh, natural and delightful themes for their big day.

With an array of vibrant colors and textures available, flower displays are set to dazzle this fall. From plum and red hues to graceful lilies, antique hydrangeas and woodland themes, the fall promises exciting floral trends that celebrate this wonderful season.
