Fall Centerpieces

It is that time of year again! The nights are getting chillier and the smell of pumpkin spice permeates the air. The time has come to break out the flannel, leggings, and boots and sip a nice spiced cider. It’s Fall decorating time! Flowers are a fantastic way of dressing up the home for the autumn season. Nothing makes a statement and sets a vibe quite like a show stopping centerpiece.

What exactly is a centerpiece? We like to think of a centerpiece as a flower arrangement that can be placed in the center of a table or space where it can be enjoyed from all points of view. This means that there must be beautiful flowers and greenery spread all around the arrangement, and not just one visible front and back. Centerpieces are meant to grab attention and make a statement. They can be full of flowers with very little greens, or full of greens with a few commanding focal flowers and accents. The options are endless when it comes to designing centerpieces!

For fall centerpieces, our floral designers recommend selecting the freshest seasonal flowers available. Sunflowers, lilies, and roses in different hues of yellow, orange, red, and white make great choices for focal flowers. These bold beauties can then be combined with seasonal bronze and gold chrysanthemums, some hypericum berries, or some autumn accent flowers such as solidago and waxflower.

Another great way to give your centerpiece a seasonal touch is by adding some fun accent stems into the arrangement. We often frame our star flowers with pieces of preserved oak leaves and pieces of wheat grass. We also carry pods in different sizes for a fun, earthy touch. Fun, light-hearted accents like pumpkins, bats, and spiders can also be added for extra holiday cheer. Opting for an alternative container such as a basket, a cornucopia, or a pumpkin is another great way to drive the autumn vibe home.
