It’s October, the spookiest time of year, and Halloween’s just around the corner! Lots of people around Port Charlotte are busy making holiday preparations, decorating the front yard for trick-or-treaters, stocking up on sweet treats, and picking out costumes. Others have already begun the Halloween festivities with scary movie marathons, pumpkin carving, and costume parties. At Port Charlotte Florist, our designs have been busy creating fresh, fun floral arrangements and gift baskets, especially for Halloween!
The Most Boo-tiful Blooms for Halloween
Chrysanthemums are a long-standing Halloween and autumn favorite. They bloom abundantly, in just about every color of the rainbow. Mums have a place in almost every Halloween or autumn floral arrangement – whether featuring spooky colors, like purple, orange, and green, or traditional autumn hues. These cheerful flowers are in-season this time of year, which means you’ll be able to enjoy potted varieties, as they continue blooming throughout the fall.
Paired with orange carnations and red hypericum berries, red and yellow rover mums make a big appearance in our Spook-tacular Blooms bouquet. For an extra festive touch, this arrangement features a “Trick-or-Treat” flower pick, a ghostly ribbon, and a surprising ghoul nestled among the flowers.
Sunflowers are also in-season during the fall, and they can make a showstopping appearance in just about any floral design. Their big, sunny globes can bloom in a variety of warm hues including orange, maroon, gold, and yellow.
We love roses for Halloween and autumn bouquets! These elegant beauties elevate floral designs, turning any bouquet into a sophisticated arrangement. Plus, they bloom (or can be dyed) in just about any color and variegation you can imagine. They’re great for spooky Halloween designs and those featuring autumn colors.
Our Monster Mash bouquet makes the most of purple and orange roses, pairing them with a variety of autumn flowers including sunflowers, purple lisianthus, waxflowers, and safari sunset. With cobwebs, spiders, and curly willow galore, this arrangement is truly a graveyard smash!
Share the Halloween Spirit with Festive Flowers and Gifts
Halloween only lasts one day, but you can celebrate the season of scares all month long. Adorn your front door with cheerful potted mums in festive colors and add a festive floral wreath to welcome trick-or-treaters. Select a few floral accents for inside your home and an elegant centerpiece for your dining table. Then you can spread the spirit of Halloween by sending a candy-filled gift basket to your favorite trick-or-treater. Celebrate a friend or family member’s birthday or anniversary with a Halloween floral arrangement.
If you have a special occasion in October or if October is the big occasion, you can celebrate the festivities with flowers and gifts designed just for Halloween.
