For most people, Halloween means decorating with jack-o-lanterns, cobwebs, skulls and other spooky pieces. However, floral arrangements also have their place during the scariest time of the year. It’s just a matter of using flowers, plants and materials associated with the holiday and the fall season. Gorgeous Halloween flower arrangements in 77084 elevate your décor while embracing some organic elements during a holiday associated with the afterlife.
Treat yourself with Halloween floral arrangements
Probably the kookiest holiday on the calendar, Halloween allows people to embrace their creative sides and bring their dreams (or nightmares) to life. Halloween flower arrangements in 77084 don’t need to look like your traditional arrangements. This is your opportunity to try something fun and new with your flowers.
Save your beautiful vases for other holidays. For your Halloween floral arrangement, use a pumpkin as your vessel instead. Depending on what you have in mind for your arrangement, you can buy fake pumpkins or head to a local patch to pick your own real ones.
With a real pumpkin, some hot glue and flowers in various shades, you can create a flower-covered pumpkin. Remove the bloom from the stem and glue to the pumpkin. Over time, the flowers will dry and create a truly unique arrangement that works well indoors or outdoors.
Ceramic pumpkins make the perfect vessel for an assortment of succulents. You can even take it one step further by adding one or two small decorative pieces to the succulents, such as tiny headstones in the dirt. That really adds a Halloween touch to your pumpkin full of succulents.
Gourds are good, too
Besides pumpkins, other gourds can also make excellent vases for seasonal flowers such as chrysanthemums, marigolds, dahlias or pansies. Simply cut off the top of the gourd, hollow it out and arrange your flowers. Have your kids decorate gourds you’ll use as vases with paint, glitter and anything else that inspires their Halloween creativity.
Picking flowers and plants
There are plenty of seasonal flowers and plants to choose from to add to your Halloween floral arrangement. Of course, you’ll want to select flowers and plants in darker colors, but also add in any orange tones you can find. Rich shades of purple and red combined with the brightness of orange look stunning, while also nurturing that Halloween feeling.
You can also balance out gothic tones with unexpected colors. For instance, fake skulls make great vases, but if you don’t want to go full Edgar Allan Poe with it, brighten up your arrangement with some pink flowers. Pick up some inexpensive vases at a thrift store, spray paint them matte black and fill them with bright, cheery blooms.
It gets quite hectic preparing for any holiday, even Halloween. Putting together costumes for your kids and decorating your home takes quite a bit of time.
