Fall is in the air — let’s bring it indoors to your apartment, too. Arranging your own autumnal bouquet is a fun, simple way to add a festive touch to your space. Below, we’re sharing fall floral arranging suggestions that will help you celebrate the start of the season where it’s done best: in the comfort of your own home.
Choose Autumnal Colors
Ask anyone why they love fall, and we bet they’ll gush about the colors. This time of year, the leaves begin to change from green to fiery red, gold, and orange — the same hues found in fall’s abundant harvest of pumpkins, apples, and squash. By selecting the right colors for your floral arrangements, you can enjoy fall’s color palette in your own apartment.
Think Outside the Blooms
Fall flowers like mums and dahlias are at their peak this time of year. But if you’re doing your own fall floral arranging, we suggest thinking beyond the blooms. Bring your bouquet to the next level by incorporating some fresh fall produce, such as apples or berries. We also suggest collecting some branches to spruce up your fall bounty.
Try a Seasonal Vase
Our next floral arranging tip is for the vessel that holds your flowers: the vase, which is arguably just as important as the bouquet. Instead of a traditional vase, we suggest placing your fall florals in a carved-out pumpkin or butternut squash to make it extra festive.
Keep It Simple
Less is sometimes more when it comes to floral arranging. If you’re a big fan of fall leaves, you may not need much else for your own bouquet. A few twigs adorned with colorful leaves will add an understated autumnal touch to any room. As a bonus, you won’t have to worry about wilting blooms.
