Fall’s Delightful Dahlias

Oh, dahlias. Is there a more delightful (and more on trend) flower? We at Gordon Boswell know the field is crowded with candidates, but we humbly submit our dazzlers for your consideration. And by “consideration,” we mean your floral decor for Fall. Fort Worth is teeming with pumpkin patches, festivals and friendly farms celebrating the season, and we know you’re prepping your home for it, too. So do yourself a favor and add the richly complex dahlia to your decorating scheme.

Behold Autumn Sunrise, our take on how you should do Fall mornings. Instead of a cup of Joe, put this beauty (or send it) right on the kitchen counter or sunny windowsill over the sink and get a jolt of sweet blooms every time you wake up.

The hand-glazed, food-safe stoneware mug looks like copper, and the profusion of flowers sprouting from it stay in that color scheme. The real showstopper here are the dahlias front and center. With their vivid orange unfolding among the roses, mums and greens, this arrangement is the prettiest picture of Fall’s floral bounty.

At Gordon Boswell, we’ve found lots of ways to work in the delightful dahlia, which lends its uncommon beauty and complexity to arrangements large and small. Given its range of colors and textural interest, it’s a bloom that really works for this season, when we’re adding heavier and more luxe textiles to the couches and tables and otherwise ornamenting our homes with rich decoration. Don’t think twice about adding a dahlia to your floral decor this Fall.
