FAQs – Fall flower arrangements
Want to know more about faux floral design? Here are the questions I get the most:
What flowers work in a fall bouquet?
When choosing flowers for a fall arrangement, you’ll want to consider color, season, and texture.
For color, I typically opt for autumn palettes with various shades of yellow, orange, red, and brown. Think about the colors of fall leaves!
That being said, there are plenty of fresh designs featuring shades of blue or green, along with cream or white.
Keep in mind which flowers commonly bloom throughout the season. Sunflowers and chrysanthemums are quintessentially fall. Others include dahlia, hydrangea, and coneflowers.
Lastly, when mixing florals, try to combine a range of shapes, sizes, and textures. For example, pair bulbous peonies with small, whimsical filler florals.
How do I make faux flowers look real?
Making faux florals look real is all about manipulating your materials.
Real flowers are imperfect. Bend your stems, fluff and separate your petals, and trim any excess leaves.
By simply playing with your materials, you can create beautiful, realistic-looking arrangements.
How do I store my fall flower arrangements?
At the end of the season, make sure to pack up your fall floral arrangements to help preserve them for next year.
Clear, labeled, lidded buckets are great for finding what you need quickly and efficiently. Plus, they’re great for stacking, saving you storage space.
I always suggest that you store your projects away from direct sunlight; this will help prevent fading throughout the year.
Also, remember to choose a dry, room-temperature location because heat and moisture can hurt your arrangements!
