Though the seemingly-endless heat wave makes it hard to believe, Autumn is nearly upon us. Back-to-school sales have started and old-school fashion mavens will look disapprovingly upon anyone brave enough to sport white shoes. White dresses, luckily, will always be in style!
This year, though, many of you may want to add more than a hint of color. Try taking advantage of the rich colors of the season, like classic reds, golds, and browns, or trendy mango and pomegranate. Orange Mini Callas have the elegant shape of traditional white Callas, but their vibrant color is a delightful surprise. Roses are also available in a host of rich seasonal tones, as are Royal Lilies, Tulips, and many other flowers.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try accenting your flowers with something more than traditional greenery. For years, one of our most popular fall arrangements has been a surprisingly elegant pairing of Asiatic Lilies and dried wheat. It’s festive without being kitschy, seasonal yet remarkably understated. For a truly inexpensive solution, try decorating your tables with fallen leaves! You’ll want to gather the leaves when they’re at their brightest, and you can press them between the pages of a book. With a little careful decoration, they could make lovely place cards, and guests can save them as keepsakes.
