When the leaves start to turn and the temperatures begin to drop, many home decorators and homeowners with a flair for creating a cozy environment get excited. Between ordering fall flower delivery and crafting perfect fall flower arrangements, there’s fun for those who love floral decor in the fall. In this article, we’ll cover five tips for the perfect fall flower arrangements.
1. Stick with a color palette that fits the season.
Rusts, pinks, oranges, yellows, reds, and browns are the perfect color palette for fall. Take inspiration for your colors from the falling leaves, the pumpkin spice lattes, the apple-picking orchards, and, of course, the pumpkin patches. Warm tones are best for autumn because they add a touch of warmth to this chilly season.
Save cool tones for winter. For now, enjoy spicy scarlet flowers like red dahlias, orange tiger lilies, and pink carnations while they still fit the mood.
2. Fake it till you make it
Real flowers aren’t the right choice for everyone. For folks with fall allergies, pets, or other things that take fresh flowers off the table, there’s nothing wrong with going with fake flowers and fake branches during the fall season.
If you’re going to use fake flowers, take a handy tip out of myonehundredyearoldhome.com — make fake flowers look fresh by adding water to the vase. Although you’ll know that your flowers don’t need water, guests will be none the wiser. The best part is that you’ll have all the beauty of fresh flowers without watching them fade away or remember to water them.
3. Add a fall wreath to your door
While considering how to decorate the inside of your home, you might end up neglecting the outside. Since the weather is still perfect for long walks through the neighborhood in the fall, adding decor to your front door in the form of a fall wreath can help add a friendly autumnal tone to your home before anyone even steps inside.
Simply grab a wreath from your favorite home decor store or spend an afternoon creating one with natural or artificial supplies for your own unique look. Once you’re done with your wreath, hang it up with a hook or nail and admire how welcoming it will look for trick-or-treat goers and those you invite to your Thanksgiving table.
4. Snag some fall branches on your walk outside–or online
Fall decor can be as simple as adding fall branches around your existing decor. You can either pick these up outside while you’re going for a stroll or snag some artificial ones online. Either way, leaves in reds, browns, and oranges signal that fall is here to stay for a little bit.
5. Go from large blooms to small blooms
Regardless of the season, you’ll want to start placing your largest blooms first. Then, fill in with smaller blooms and finish with little touches such as dried leaves to polish your fall flower look off.
