It’s not just the weather that changes in the autumn. Shop windows, florists and flower markets turn over their wares in preparation for the colder months. Once again, we look to deep reds, golden yellows and fiery orange hues. We reach for seasonal flowers or dried flowers to decorate our houses. Here are three ideas for you to try.
This is what you’ll need
- Phytolacca berries
- Trailing amaranthus
- Floral Foam
1. Showstopping Autumn Bouquet
Incorporate all your favourite autumn colours and shapes in this seasonal bouquet. Why choose between dahlia, crocosmia and hypericum, when you can bring everything together in one statement bunch? Place the vase on a pedestal — it deserves it!
2. Boldly Arranged Bouquet
Use a clear container to create a spectacle that runs from the bottom of the shortest stems to the tips of the tallest petals. There are no rules here if you approach the whole bouquet as a flower arrangement — and it’s quite easy to do. Place some floral foam in the bottom of the vase. Then, insert individual flowers into this, before placing the bouquet in the middle. Its stems will be hidden by the flowers lower down. For best results, use height differences and create playful contrasts with feathers and autumn berries.
3. Statement Vase Bouquet
Try placing sculptural autumn stems in an eye-catching vase. Follow the example of the version in the picture, and choose an entertaining feature container for your fun bouquet. A gathering of plumes, spikes, foliage and berries emerging from a neoclassical bust is sure to get people’s attention. Why not try using dried flowers for a real statement?
Now get started and arrange these beautiful autumn bouquets!
