Elements of Fall Floral Design

The elements and colors used in fall floral design are distinctive and easily recognizable. Even here in South Florida, where temperatures haven’t cooled and colors don’t change, our home decor and floral designs celebrate the warmth of the season. Many of us have been transplanted from colder climates and remember the inviting hospitality of hot cider and roaring fires. The floral designers at Port Charlotte Florist employ inspiration from traditional fall themes to create some of the most beautiful arrangements, bouquets and centerpieces in Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and North Port. What can we make for your home or gathering?

Don’t Forget

These seasonal arrangements make amazing hostess gifts! 

A great fall floral design begins with the rich hues and tones of the season. Inspired by fall foliage up north, the colors of fall include deep reds, golden yellows, fiery oranges, warm corals and peaches and earthy browns. Any flower which exhibits these beautiful and comforting colors is appropriate for a fall design. Some of the most popular flowers are sunflowers, asters, mums, roses, lilies and carnations.

Textural Beauty

One of the best elements of designing at this time of year is the diversity of unique accents. For instance, blue thistle adds unexpected aesthetic interest and depth to Fall Cornucopia, shown below.

Other details which make fall designs stand out are seasonal elements such as wheat stalks, cinnamon sticks, cattails and seed pods, even fruit and gourds. We also love eucalyptus leaves, foliage, and kale. Containers are often rustic and casual, ranging from wicker and burlap to metal buckets or mason jars. So whether you are looking for a centerpiece that will start a conversation, or a hostess gift she will never forget, get creative with fall floral design!

The team at Port Charlotte Florist imagines, designs and creates unique floral designs all year round, but there is just something warm and inviting about the fall. Give us a call, and we will help you to add a bit of seasonal pumpkin, spice and hospitality to your home!
