Trick or Treat? Pick Your Favorite Halloween Flower Decorations!

Saturday, 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!
