Surround Yourself in Fall Colors With Mums

Bring the Colors of Fall into Your Home with Colorful Mums

Fall is a beautiful season that brings with it gorgeous colors all around. Surrounding yourself with these colors can be as simple as including a few beautiful arrangements of mums in your home or office. Chrysanthemums not only appear in a multitude of varieties and colors, their shape and texture can also create a unique look for your home or office. They make fabulous gifts when celebrating fall birthdays or anniversaries, too, as these are such a strong representatives of the autumn season. Take a look at the amazing styles and varieties the floral experts at Gordon Boswell Flowers are showing off this season and choose something perfect for your autumn experience.

Daisy Mums

One of the most popular varieties of chrysanthemums, the daisy mum is a cheerful design that resembles a regular daisy. Bright with a flat disk in the center, usually yellow, brown or green in hue, these sweet flowers can dress up any floral design. Often seen in fall colors of gold, burgundy, red, orange, white, or bronze, daisy mums make the perfect accent or feature flower for autumn floral arrangements.

Cushion Mums

Another great variety of mums includes the cushion mum. This bloom looks a bit like a pin cushion, with a rounded head due to short petals curving in over the disk to conceal it from view. These blooms tend to grow in large bushes close to the ground. Masses of blooms can grow in a single area quickly, and being mums, these are very hardy, long-lasting flowers.

Spider Mums

Spider mums provide loads of texture and style to any floral design. Characterized by long, thin petals that resemble a spider’s legs, this variety of chrysanthemum provides lacy, elegant beauty to any design. Planted in the garden, included in a mixed bouquet like our Happy Times or Fall Brights Bouquets, or collected in vases as stand-alone single blooms, these fun blooms will add festive flair to any fall look you put together during the autumn season.

Include Mums In Your Fall Decor

Decorating for autumn by showcasing colorful mum displays can add just the right touch of fall to your home decorations. Because of the great variety of colors, textures, and sizes, chrysanthemums can be a perfect addition to the interior or exterior of your home. One amazing way to make sure your mums are the star is to pair the vivid blooms with dark green plants to really make the colors shine. Choose the typical hues of fall to match the loveliness of the turning leaves on the autumn trees. Or go bold with shades of purple and pink. Whatever your choice, mums announce that fall has arrived in your home. 

Whether your sending fabulous blooms to someone special for their fall celebration or celebrating fall yourself, be sure to include mums in the mix for an authentic fall look.
