Latest Floral Design And 2017 Spring Flowers Trends

March 21st, 2017

Planning an event? Maybe you’re getting married? Then again perhaps you just want to spruce up your home décor in time for spring…whatever your reason is, you totally want to be up on floral design trends for the 2017. Todich Floral Design takes a deep dive and provides a sneak peak at upcoming spring flowers, 2017 floral designs, and flower fashions for the year ahead.


Unpacking Floral Trends and Wedding Flower Design

Trends and styles in floral design are everchanging, shifting like the seasons of the year. Floral design trends can also be a little tricky to predict as they’re tied to and influenced by world events. Needless to say, it’s difficult—practically a full-time endeavor!—to keep current with the latest and freshest, the flashiest bunches of blossoms or the more alluring bouquets, the sweet and seductive floral designs for the year, no matter what your plans or purpose.

A Shift in Floral Fashions and Most Popular Flower Colours

A momentous, unexpected year in global politics and advent of spring is rapidly shaping and shifting the floral landscape, especially when it comes to the hues, shades, and colour palettes of blossoms for the 2017 spring flower season. What’s trending, exactly? A lot of fervent and fiery petals that vie for the eye and grab your gaze have been supplanted by relatively subdued hues—apricots, creams, beige, bicolored roses, verdant whites, peach, pale pinks—and underlying shades of white or grey.

Why is this the case? The lighter colours provide an emotional balance and equilibrium in bouquets and event flower arrangements that balance out our psyches and mental states, as it’s easy to get caught up in the news and the year’s more tumultuous events.

Spring Flowers and 2017 Wedding Flower Trends

Falling in line with the general colour shift, wedding flower styles are shifting to assuage generalized concern and unease, and instead focus on tender, more feminine bouquet compositions and nuanced colourations. No bold, brash and I-speak-louder-than-thou palatial floral displays here—or, if there are, then floral design aesthetics at least balance the piece as a whole.

For example, we are seeing lots of rustic style wedding bouquets coming back in fashion, bucolic and evocative of countryside innocence, splendor and times that were more carefree. Even at a joyous occasion such as a wedding, where we look forward to a bright future full of love, a sense of nostalgia and looking to the past can find its way into flower designs. Sprawling, winding bouquets that drape across tables or hang luxuriantly within the brides grasp are made from vines, greenery, tiny buds and white hued to cream-coloured blooms with slender, feathery blossoms.

A natural sense of romance is key in this spring’s wedding designs and styles, a sense of wildness and the raw potential and allure of nature, without the chaotic or unnerving connotations of urban living and modernity. This spring you can expect lots of fresh flower varieties with profuse petals, including English roses, hydrangeas, marigolds, ranunculus and gerberas daisies, balanced by wildflower frills and ruffles of garden greenery.

Wedding Flower Ideas in Eight Different Colours

February 24th, 2017

There are so many different colour choices for wedding flower designs and the choice can be for single colour shades, multi-coloured celebrations or colours to suit the season. Spring floral colours generally tend to reflect the blooms available this time of year in yellows, blues and white while summer presents the option for more colours including pinks and purples. Wedding florists will have plenty of ideas for designs and flower choices to suit any taste and style – from classic and elegant to quirky and modern. Here’s some inspiration for flowers in popular colours for a spring or summer wedding.


White. White is often a prominent colour at weddings – symbolising purity and beauty, especially in the bridal gown. Although particularly popular for winter wedding decorations, white flowers are also beautiful choices for weddings in spring and summer. They can be stand-alone bouquets and decorations, or incorporated into bridal bouquets and other wedding flower arrangements to complement and enhance brighter colours like red and purple. White flowers like roses and lilies make wonderful showpiece blooms, while more delicate flowers like baby’s breath and lily-of-they-valley are perfect complements to harmonious bouquets and arrangements. A teardrop bouquet of calla lilies is an elegant, understated choice while white roses can complement pinks and greens in a romantic rose bouquet.

Red. The colour of passion and love, red is a bold and striking choice for wedding flowers. Although particularly popular in winter, as in this crimson rose and berry bouquet red can be suitable for any season. Spring and summer red blooms to choose from are daisy-shaped gerberas, tulips, carnations, anemones and roses. Red blooms harmonised with pink flowers makes for a particularly romantic look, while a rich, dark red bridal bouquet for red roses will looking sumptuous and striking against a white wedding dress. In the winter, red perfectly suits a Christmas- themed wedding and flowers can incorporate winter greenery like holly and ivy.

Yellow. Yellow flowers for bridal bouquets and floral wedding decorations are perfect for spring and summer weddings. Symbolising happiness and joy, these cheerful blooms will add colour and brightness to décor and make perfect complements to bride and bridesmaid’s dresses. Roses, lilies and gerberas are all available in bold shades, while more pastel shades of daffodils and hydrangeas are also an option. Yellow blooms look beautiful pared with white flowers and juxtaposed with sprigs of greenery to really make the colours pop. Yellow tulips make for show-stopping wedding centrepieces and white and yellow roses with ivy make for beautiful brides flowers.

Blue. While rarer finds, blue flowers make unique additions to wedding flower designs – symbolising inspiration, creativity and hope. They also account for the traditional ‘something blue’ for good luck! Aqua blue wedding flowers complement white blooms in arrangements, while deep blue flowers will complement white and yellow shades and are harmonious with greenery. For deep blues consider anemones, roses and cornflowers, and for pastel spring shades there’s the choice of hydrangeas, hyacinths, forget-me-nots and irises.

Purple. Purple has long been associated with richness and royalty, so it’s no surprise this regal shade is popularly requested from bridal florists for wedding flowers in bouquets, reception arrangements and centrepieces. Purple flowers to choose from are anemones, sweet peas, delphiniums, stocks, calla lilies and rose. Shades vary from very pale to deep shades, to suit all tastes and styles. Purple blooms can be anything from dramatic to pretty, traditional to rustic. Purple orchids and pink roses make an exciting bouquet, while pastel mauve roses are adorned with white freesias for true romance in a more subtle arrangement. Add to white floral bouquets or juxtapose with orange or yellow blooms for something more striking.

Pink. Pink wedding flowers are particularly popular in spring and summer and create the perfect feminine, romantic look. Pink blooms are very versatile and can be made prominent in white arrangements or complement red floral bouquets and wedding centrepieces. Pastel pink shades are harmonious with mauves, whites and blues in a romantic floral centrepiece incorporating roses, hyacinths and hydrangeas. There’s plenty of choice of style and texture when choosing pink flowers for weddings: from classic roses to exotic orchids and cheerful gerberas. More rustic choices are sweet peas, stocks and delphiniums which to be incorporated into wedding flower designs and bouquets. Coral wedding flowers such as roses and ranunculus are lovely, understated shades that work well in bouquets of white and cream flowers.

Orange. Signifying happiness and joy, orange wedding flowers make lovely additions to summer and autumn decorations and bouquets. Whether pale, pastel shades or richer colours like burnt orange wedding flowers, this colour is surprisingly versatile and suits many looks and tastes. Dahlias, chrysanthemums, gerberas and roses are all flowers that come in shades of orange. They work very well with pale pinks, white, creams and greenery in bouquets. Orchids and calla lilies are alternative, more exotic choices that make great wedding buttonholes and corsages. Orange is ideal for autumn when the abundance of fruits, flowers and vegetables makes for a celebratory season perfect for weddings.

Green. There are pale green shades of hydrangeas and tulips (green hydrangeas can complement pink and cream roses) but a green bridal bouquet tends to be about white blooms complemented by green foliage or wedding floral displays made prominently of greenery: vines, leaves, ferns or more modern plants like succulents which can be used to create quirky and unique arrangements. The original wedding bouquets were made up of fragrant herbs to keep evil spirits away, so a green bouquet can be in keeping with an old tradition. Rosemary, sage and lavender are lovely choices and will perfectly complement full white bridal flowers such as roses and peonies. Succulents and mini potted plants make delightful place settings and wedding favours, while greenery such as branches and vines can be used to create a woodland wonderland look.

All the colours of the rainbow awaits when choosing floral designs for the perfect wedding, and there’s no end to where your inspiration could take you!

Corsages and Buttonholes to Suit all Wedding Styles

February 14th, 2017

Whether a single flower or a mini bouquet, corsages make gorgeous addition to wedding outfits. They can harmonise with a dress in paler shades of pink, cream and peach, or can really pop against a wedding dress in dramatic shades of red, purple or yellow. The flowers of the corsage can be mirrored in the more-subtle buttonholes of the groom and groomsmen, and of course in the bride and bridesmaid bouquets and table decorations. It’s a lovely extravagance to have at such an important, romantic event! Wedding corsages can be created to suit any themes and styles.


Rustic. Simple, delicate blooms are ideal for a rustic wedding, invoking ideas of gardens and a care-free spirit. Sprigs of baby’s breath or wildflowers can be used to create corsages and buttonholes, and can play the starring role in wedding bouquets and table decorations. Herbs like rosemary and lavender can make delightful corsages and button holes, adding subtle shades and an aromatic fragrance. Materials like hessian, twine and black ribbon can add to a boho look. Fashionable succulents can even be added to a wedding corsage to create a beautiful, quirky look.

Woodland. There are so many beautiful choices of greenery for wedding flowers that they can be the starring role in your corsages and button holes. Ivy and ferns can be styled into beautiful miniature arrangements, or form the base for floral corsages made up of a flower such as roses. More unusual foliage like thistles can be added (especially appropriate for a Scottish wedding!), and forest features like tiny pine cones, moss and woodland flowers can also be incorporated to create the perfect designs.

Classic. For many planning their wedding, it has to be roses! These versatile, timeless blooms have long been associated with romance. Available in myriad shades, shapes and sizes, it’s easy to create any look for wedding corsages and buttonholes with roses. Pale yellow roses will perfectly harmonise with a white or ivory wedding dress, and a single bloom will make an elegant addition to a dark suit. Ribbon, tulle and delicate embellishments of fine foliage and flowers can add to an classic rose corsage. Calla lilies also make stylish, classic choices for corsages and buttonholes, their white or yellow blooms perfectly fitting with any wedding colour-scheme.

Orchids. These mysterious and exotic blooms make perfect wedding flowers. Their elegant shapes make them fitting for a starring role on a corsage or button hole, and will certainly create a wow-factor. A single orchid can be the perfect choice – and of course there are so many colours to choose from. From classic white or pale yellow, to romantic reds and pinks or unusual purple or green, orchids corsages are available in any bride’s favourite colour. For a more extravagant look, an arrangement of deep pink orchids and intricate greenery will look truly stunning on any bride, adding a dash of colour and drama to her look. A single bloom of these will make a perfect, complimentary buttonhole.

Going To Winter Wonderland: Transform Your Wedding Or Event!  

January 30th, 2017

There is a magical winter wonderland out there, waiting to be discovered. You just need to bundle up, go out and seek it for yourself. Or maybe you want to bring the best parts of nature and the wintry outdoors inside, instead: for you and your guests, your family and friends or coworkers to enjoy!

Be it a private event, party, or even a wedding, Todich Floral Design has some fabulous tips for creating your own winter wonderland and winter themed flower arrangements:


Winter Branches and Wild Flowers

Silver brunia, tallow-berry branches, olive branches, cotton sprigs

For a natural forest and snow-kissed vibe, introduce tallow-berry branches, cotton sprigs and olive branches to any number of flower arrangements. Add brunia berries for an especially frosty effect. These adorable little berries are like tiny pearls or Christmas ornaments, round and silvery grey.

Fresh Greenery For A Naturally Rustic and Fey Feel

Maindenhair fern, camellia leaves, smilax and jasmine vines

Part of the magic and splendor of winter are the flashes of color we see against a white snowy landscape, or the yellow lamplight and brilliant stars that sparkle for us as they stand out against an early dusk, and so illuminating the night.

Add a splash of green and white to your winter bouquets. Wavy leaflets of maidenhair fern, glossy green and almond-shaped camellia leaves, smilax with their clusters of burnished bright red berries, and jasmine vines sporting white flowers and exotic fragrance. Creating a magical ambiance, based in nature, akin to fairyland, that is playful and alluring, requires a careful balance.

Also consider a blue bouquet approach, adding blue, light purple and green flowers to your arrangements.

Winter Fruits And Berries Filling Your Flower Arrangements

Ornamental blackberries, pepperberries, holly berries, kumquats and persimmons

Seasonal fruits and berries, some edible and some not, are a fun way to bring something unique to your flower arrangements, especially if you are striving to create the backdrop and ambiance of your very own winter wonderland. Whether it is a bouquet you want to send as a gift to someone special, or a part of your own wedding flowers and decorations, you can deliver a sprinkling of truly delightful winter magic.

Blackberries, pepperberries and sprigs of holly introduce a dash of colour and festive spirit to your bouquet. Kumquats and persimmons in your holiday flower gifts provide them with a tad-bit of sweetness!

Stimulate The Full Array of Senses

Rosemary, Lavender, Mint, Pine and Cedar…and Feathers, too

No wonderland experience is complete without a full array of sensory stimulation. Now that you have taken care of sight and taste, combine spices, herbs and other accouterments to cover smell and touch.

Let feathers tickle the senses! And rosemary, lavender and mint leaves each lend their own unique, sharp and naturally distinct smells to bouquets and flower decorations. Pine needles and cedar bark carry a fresh, clean woodsy odor that will carry and fill your event, venue or reception hall—all throughout the evening.

Shades Of White: How To Choose Your Winter Wedding Bouquet

January 15th, 2017

Brides in wintertime have all the more reason to be excited, not only because they are about to tie the knot and embark upon a beautiful journey—but also for all the options they have when it comes to seasonal flowers and colour options. There’s not just white to select from! For winter brides and bridesmaids, Todich Floral Design has arranged this winter wedding guide to help you choose:



Cream-colored Bouquets and Ivory Arrangements

White roses, ranunculus, peonies, lilacs, orchids and narcissi paper whites

Cream and ivory hued flowers create subtle nuances in colour that complement and expand the palette of your winter wedding bouquet. But don’t rule out the classic white-on-white option, either. Arrays of roses, ranunculus and peonies in particular, in dense dome-like bouquets or table arrangements, will have a curious draw and surely delight your guests. All-white wedding flower arrangements, especially profusions of a single type of blossom, can have a singularly powerful and entrancing effect.

Blush Coloured Blossoms And Pale Hues

Waxflower, limonium, poppies, peonies and roses

Liven up your bridal bouquet with a few expertly placed, light colourful accents. Blush roses or peonies, red poppies, and purple hued limonium and waxflowers are some of the most gorgeous!

Red Velvet Accents For Your Wedding’s Floral Arrangement

Red roses, ranunculus, red berries, lilies and peonies

Imagine that perfect red rose found in a fairy tale forest, somehow preserved in the midst of a snowdrift and raised up, poised and waiting to be plucked. That’s what this wedding colour scheme is like as you plan your special day.

There are plenty of ways for you to incorporate red flowers with a generally white colour scheme. Red roses, ranunculus, burgundy calla lilies and peonies can be carefully placed to accent any arrangement. For a lighter touch, try holly leaves (with red berries) and pepperberries.

Splashes Of Gold And Silver Lend A Glamorous Airs

Gold and satin ribbon, sequins, silver leaves

Colours that connote opulence, elegance and glamor—you can imbue your wedding reception, its decoration and bouquets with the magic of gold and silver. Think satin ribbons to tie fresh cut flowers, glittering sequins on tables, and gilt leaves. This wedding colour theme is also a nod to New Year’s just around the corner!

Icy Blue, Blue-grey And Cerulean

Calla lilies, delphiniums and hydrangea

Different hues of blue are integral to many colour palettes and winter-themed weddings, with whites and light purples and lavender as base colours in the floral arrangement. Blue is evocative of winter—a cloudless, cerulean sky, the blue-grey we see before first snow, icy blues and sapphire blue—and all can be incorporated into your wedding’s décor if you should be so inspired.

Creating Textured White Bouquets

Pussy willows, pinecones, satin ribbon, white feathers and cedar boughs

For brides and bridesmaids alike, holding a bouquet of flowers can be both an ethereal and full body experience. Make the textures of your bouquets come alive with frilly blossoms and petals, bristly pinecones, silky smooth ribbon, and the soft, delicate touch of a feather.

Perfect Winter Filler Flowers For Weddings, At Home, And Everywhere Else

December 15th, 2016

Want to jazz up your bouquet? A little contrast or complementary blossoms, some extra body or rounding out the bouquet’s shape—these are often the finishing touches a professional florist puts on a masterful piece of floral art. Check out some of Todich Floral Design’s favorite filler flowers for the winter and holiday season:

Seasonal Winter Plants

Gypsophila, Hypericum, Limonium, Queen Anne’s Lace and Solidago

Plants that act as filler for winter bouquets can be found growing in the wild. But just in case you live in a big city, or maybe find yourself a little too busy for a trip to the countryside, you are probably okay to pay a visit to your local florist. They are great for special events, parties and as wedding flowers, and grow both year round and in-season.

Queen Anne’s Lace and gypsophila are plants with many tiny white flowers, playing with lighter hues and angelic, clean composition in their fragrance to grace and round out your bouquet.

Long stem limoniums and asters add their purple and lavender spark to any flower arrangement, while solidago and hypericum brandish yellow, orange and gold hues, hinting (and hoping for) the springtime season to come.   

Frosty And Fun Winter Filler

Seeded Eucalyptus, Lamb’s Ear, Dusty Miller Plant

How do some florists give their bouquets that perfect wintry touch? It’s a sort of frosty, icebound effect which absolutely evokes the season. By creating contrast, you can enhance the bright whites in your bouquet and bring out the colours in other blossoms.

Seeded eucalyptus, Lamb’s ear and dusty miller plant are fabulous filler flowers that have a natural silvery grey and pale green cast to them to help you pull off this effect.

Give A Christmas Feel To Your Flower Arrangements

Holly, Pinecones, Evergreens, Poinsettias with Roses, Tulips and Lilies

Don’t forget about time-old favorites! Shiny green holly leaves (with their red berries), pinecones and evergreens are classic and easy ways to decorate for the holiday season, as are potted poinsettia plants. These plants aren’t just for Christmas wreathes, but also go well in arrangements with flowers like roses, tulips and lilies in traditional colours of red and white.

Aromatic Herbs, Spices And Plants For Your Arrangement

Flat Cedar, Cedar Boughs, Rosemary, Cinnamon and Clove

Since flowers offer such a grandiose visual feast, sometimes it is easy to forget that they can also offer us a full array of stimulation. Smell, of course, is the second sense (or even the first sometimes) that comes to mind when we think of flowers.

Flat cedar, cedar boughs, pine branches and clippings from other types of evergreens can bring out a deliciously woody aroma and piney scent to complement your Christmas bouquet or holiday flower arrangement.
Rosemary, a symbol of the Christmas tree itself, is another way to deepen the experience of your flower bouquets. This slightly sweet herb may also be enjoyed as a holiday decoration, arranged with pinecones over your mantelpiece or simply by laying it out along the windowsill.

For the 2016 season, plenty of online holiday shoppers are selecting hand-tied and specially arranged modern spins or chic twists on classic Christmas wreaths as gifts or decorations around the home. Big this year, there are all natural wreaths, with bright, crisp and wintry arrays of dried berries, in colours beige, blush, gold and ochre palettes, as well as cream, mint green and off-white tones. Gold baubles and luxurious bows are the ideal flourish: a contemporary accent—though not too flashy—as a finish to your wreathe.

Overflowing Greenery, Red Ribbon, Burgundy and Berry Accents

Red berries, ivy, pine needles and red bows

If you are more of a traditionalist in your gift selection and Christmas tastes, yet at the same time want something that is a little exciting, perhaps not as ho-hum as the typical selection and what you see in holiday display windows, then this wreath is absolutely for you. Bright green pointed ivy leaves are arranged in layers and draped around a frame of pine needles and evergreen boughs to create a textured and rounded wreathe.

Pinecones, dried fruits, cinnamon and cedar foliage

Fresh, invigorating and stimulating for all the senses, this bright and festive wreath is truly a seasonal treat. White baubles, satin ribbon, silver- and white-painted pinecones and frosty branches are keeping with winter wonderland vibes we are seeing so much of.

Brighten up the frosty wintry landscape with arrangements made from amaryllis, red rose bouquets, and tight buds of ranunculus or the frilly, velvet petals of carnations. Consider lightening up your flower arrangements with green filler and foliage or peach- and pink-coloured contrasting blossoms!

Winter Wonderland Whites, Beige And Greens

Rustic simplicity rules here with just a few components in a wedding bouquet. It is largely made up of roses varying from white to light lavender to beige, arranged with wild berries that are purple or white and greenery clipped from cedar boughs: the overall effect is a balanced, natural flourish and fringe for lighter yet striking palette.

Regal Blossoms—Make Your Winter Wedding Elegant

Create a royal stir for your winter wedding by contrasting white with lavender and purple in your bridal bouquet and even your wedding decorations. Limonium and purple sea spray flowers are wavy, purple abundant buds that fill space between giant white rose heads, the profuse fan-like blossom patterns of fabled freesias, and stephanotis flowers.

Christmas Flowers Arrangements For Winter Weddings

Why not get festive for the season? A Christmas themed wedding bouquet can imbue the happiest day of your life with a jolly sentiment you will share from the ceremony, back down the aisle, and all the way through the reception. Revel in the radiant wintry splendor of red tulips, roses and ranunculus, blush or light pink peonies, and evergreen holly leaves.

All Roses, Baby! Luxuriant Bouquets Entirely of Roses

8 Ways To Make Your Wedding Ceremony Amazing With Flowers

November 2nd, 2016

As important as it is to plan out your flower arrangements and beautifully decorate your wedding venue, there are lots of ways for you to create an elegant, classy and beautiful ambiance at the ceremony itself. See these 11 ways from London wedding florist Todich Floral Design for you to create an absolutely gorgeous wedding ceremony this winter.


1. Dome Flowers

Carnations, Roses, Ranunculus and Peonies

A classic flower dome made from carnations, red or white big-bloom roses, peonies or ranunculus in a silver vase on a pedestal is a striking, elegant way to decorate at your wedding ceremony.

2. Christmas Weddings Bring Added Joy and Cheer to the Season

Douglas Fir, White Pine, Norway Spruce, Angels and Ornaments

If you’re planning a Christmas wedding, allow yourself to be inspired by the season. Fir, pine and spruce—all evergreen Christmas trees can be set off to either side of the alter. Angel ornaments, golden stars, silver and bright red orbs are a lovely addition to your ceremony.

3. Entranceway and Archway Flowers

Blush Roses, Hydrangeas, Babies Breath, Queen Anne’s Lace

Wedding guests are always so excited by beautifully arranged flowers. So what better way to greet them at entranceways, by decorating arches and church steps, and with sign decorations? Vintage milk jug vases filled with daises, hydrangeas and blush roses, or pedestal flower arrangements, are warm ways to welcome family and friends for winter weddings. Consider a chalk-drawn ceremony sign with simple, angelic garlands made up of babies breath flowers or Queen Anne’s lace.

4. Candelabra Floral Displays

Pedestal Flowers, Candelabra and Windowsill Floral Displays

Add a lovely candelabrum decorated with flowers on your wedding day. Place candelabra near the alter, on windowsills (with the candles unlit), and on pedestals throughout your venue.

5. Church Wedding Pew Decorations

Church Pew Flowers, Roses, Green Ivy and White Ribbon

Decorating church pews and the pew ends with flowers is an enduring tradition, whether you have an English countryside wedding, a vintage style wedding, or something that’s a little more chic, with plenty of glitz and glam.

There’s lots of room for creativity, too, no matter what your wedding theme. A rosebud, tied with twine and bright green ivy is one option. Simple greenery and foliage with white satin ribbons is another. For church pew flowers, simplicity is really the key!

6. Decorate the Alter With Candlelight

Altar Flowers, Vintage Wedding Flowers

Warm the atmosphere of your wedding ceremony even more with softly glowing candles. Candles can find their way into all sorts of wedding decorations. You can light them at the alter, as well as in vintage chandeliers, or by highlighting the aisle.

7. Aisle Flowers

Pink, Blush and Bi-colored Rose Petals

Aisle flowers at your ceremony, including blush or light pink or bi-colored rose petals scattered down the aisle, are a way to have fun and rejoice in love’s abundance!

8. Christmas Wreaths for Winter Weddings

Christmas Roses, Rosemary, Jasmine, Mistletoe

At your ceremony it’s time to go classic—add a traditional Christmas wreath to rustic doors, at the entrances and doorways, and throughout your ceremony venue. Christmas roses, rosemary and jasmine, and mistletoe are other fine seasonal touches.

Tis the season after all, right? Embrace each other, celebrate your future together and add to the joy and good tidings of your wedding day by including Christmas wreaths in your wedding decoration.

Trick or Treat? Pick Your Favorite Halloween Flower Decorations!

October 29th, 2016

Halloween is coming up fast. So how are you going to celebrate this spooky and sweet time of year? Whether you are planning a Halloween party, handing out treats or brainstorming your best Halloween costume ideas, you can get into the holiday spirit with beautiful autumn themed flower arrangements. Try these 5 DIY flower gifts and autumn floral arrangements.

Feel the Warmth of Autumn

Nothing beats a warm, brightly coloured Halloween “boo-kay” at home: orange, yellow, burgundy, lighter reds and blush blossoms, russet-hued foliage and greenery. They will create a festive environment, mimicking the palette of crisp fallen leaves. With such a floral display, you can pull your family and guests into the spirit of the holiday!

Halloween flower arrangements for the entire month of October are not only a way to treat yourself, but they also lighten your home and create a cozy atmosphere as the weather cools and the days grow shorter. Whether or not you decide to dress up, host a Halloween party or give out treats, you still get to celebrate. These Halloween bouquets and autumn flower arrangement ideas from Todich Floral Design are as good as ghoul-d!

1. A Single Bi-colored Orange Rose

A festively sweet and holiday appropriate way to tell your special someone ‘I love you,’ orange bi-colored roses embody the Halloween season. These roses are a rich orange tinged with yellow or red along the petals and outer portion of the blossom.

They are reminiscent of pumpkins, fallen leaves and windows by night filled with glowing candles. You can also share this simple yet fun flowery treat with a close friend or family member.

2. Potted Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums or potted mums are perfect for decorating your home in time for Halloween. Positive, cheery little blooms can be placed in a glass or ceramic vase, kept in full view from the countertop or breakfast nook, or table surfaces throughout the house.

If you’re feeling particularly crafty or just want to plan a kid-friendly project, try carving out a Jack-o-lantern. Use your pumpkin as a special container for the chrysanthemum arrangement. Pink, yellow or orange petals always make a great impression on your guests.

3. Irresistible Autumn Lilies

Lilies, with their flared-out petals and blooms like tiny sunbursts or starlight, make a striking and darling flower arrangement—perfect to brighten your home for autumn or give to friends as a gift.

4. Candy Carnations and Roses

A full, frilly and textured Halloween flower arrangement combining the colours of autumn —it’s the same wide assortment you’re likely to find in the candy bags of trick-or-treaters. Bi-color roses, orange and red carnations, stems of yellow goldenrod, and dark yellow or light orange pom daisies create a lively Halloween flower centrepiece for your home or party.

5. Cherry-red Asters and Burnished Apple Bouquet

A lush and boisterous bouquet that evoke the reds, oranges and russet colours of the season. Asiatic lilies, asters, tulips, mums, and golden oak leaves make this autumn arrangement stand out, as it puts you in mind of shiny red apples, sweet cherries and the warmth that emanates from a glowing hearth. We hope you love it as much as we do at Todich Floral Design!
