Now that autumn is in full swing, you might feel compelled to spruce up your home, placing miniature pumpkins and gourds on your front porch and tabletops and replacing your pastel-colored throw pillows and blankets with pieces in deep, rich tones. Something else you could try out is adding nice bouquets of flowers around the home for some extra autumn spirit. If you’re looking to add some color to the inside of your house or your front porch, or even considering starting a flower garden, consider some of these fall flowers that are the top picks for this autumn.
With many varieties of dahlias blooming from the middle of summer and throughout the fall, you can find just about every color around this time of year. Dahlias are great for growing in your garden, keeping in vases in your home or giving as gifts to friends and loved ones. These flowers symbolize elegance, creativity, dignity and inner strength.
One of our top fall bouquets that feature dahlias is Teleflora’s Lush and Lovely. With burgundy dahlias, lavender hydrangea, red cymbidium orchids, purple mokara orchids, crème roses, dark red roses, lavender button mums and purple cushion mums, it’s just the right arrangement if you’re looking to brighten up your home with cooler tones of fall.
Plenty of people associate sunflowers with the summertime because of their vibrant yellow shades. However, sunflowers are also a great bloom for the autumn months, especially when they’re contrasted against greens, browns and other earthy shades.
A stunning arrangement you can give or keep is the You’re Golden Bouquet by Teleflora. Its bold sunflowers are accented with oregonia, magnolia leaves, lemon leaf and moss for a dramatic yet delicate look.
As flowers that are part of the daisy family, these blooms make for stunning bouquets on their own or when accented against other fall flowers or greenery. Chrysanthemums are also the November birth flower, making them the right kind to decorate your home particularly in the late months of autumn. Some orange, yellow and red mums can add some stunning foliage colors to your home, transforming it from a plain space to an autumnal haven.
Teleflora offers plenty of lovely arrangements that feature chrysanthemums, but one of our favorites is our Elegant Traditions Centerpiece. Perfect for a dining room, this centerpiece can add some color to your Thanksgiving table setting, or can spice up the space for your regular family dinners.
