Aside from a watercolor sunset, nothing compares to the beautiful hues of fall: crimson, orange, yellow, and gold. When the leaves begin to turn after a summer of activity and fun, our professional florists at Gordon Boswell look forward to helping our clients settle their families and homes into the autumn season by decorating with festive fall flowers and more. The following are a few tips from our florists on bringing the beauty of the season into your home.
Though it goes without saying, the fiery colors of autumn are a must when it comes to decorating for the season. You can incorporate seasonal hues like red, orange, yellow, gold, and purple into your decor by switching out small decorative elements like napkins, tablecloths, throw rugs, pillows, blankets, and towels. Add a centerpiece of fall flowers to your mantel or dining room table like our Fall Extravagance bouquet which bursts with white hydrangea, yellow and orange roses, lilies, fall berries, and more.
Properly decorating for a festive autumn season requires more than a special color scheme. Incorporating objects associated with autumn and harvest also adds a nice, home-spun touch to your decor. Line pumpkins along your walkway and place ceramic pumpkins around the interior of your home. You might even consider adding a scarecrow to your yard or garden. Another decorative element of harvest is the cornucopia. Filling a wicker cornucopia with fall flowers makes a nice statement in an entryway or on a dining table. They also provide wonderful displays for produce.
A well-decorated home should appeal to more than just the eyes; a home should have a signature scent to complement the physical atmosphere. To add to the lovely scent of fall flower arrangements, you can give your home a nice, autumn aroma by boiling cinnamon sticks, clove, and orange peel in water on the stove. This will fill your home with an inviting, pleasant aroma fitting for the relaxing days of autumn you plan to spend curled up on the sofa with a good book and a hot cup of cider.
However you choose to decorate your home for fall, our expert florists look forward to helping you select the best fall flowers this autumn.
