Tuesday Ten: Falling for Fall Flowers

It’s no secret I adore having fresh cut flowers in my home. Whether they’re on my bedside table or in the kitchen, flowers add a nice breath of fresh air to an otherwise stale space. However, what you probably don’t know is that I really enjoy putting together flower arrangements. So when an occasion calls for centerpieces, I’m your girl. Instead of calling a florist and spending a fortune on pricy arrangements, I like to head down to the local flower mart and put them together myself. Now that it’s fall I’ve decided to educate myself on the seasonal pickings for my next flower mart trip…

When you buy flowers that are in season they’re typically cheaper, so be sure to find out what blooms in your hemisphere before putting together your arrangement. In California, hydrangeas, lilies, daises, chrysanthemums, acacia and other popular wild flowers are in peak season so I’ll be working those into the arrangements I’m putting together for Thanksgiving.

Interestingly enough, flower arranging is very therapeutic and calming. In fact, I think it’s a great way to shake off the pre-holiday jitters. If you’re up to the task, take a look at these 10 beautiful fall flower arrangements I found and get inspired… Enjoy!

    Such beautiful arrangements. I love them all! I especially loved the arrangement on the chair. So cute:) I guess I don’t really have a favorite fall flower but I love daisies. They have always been my favorite:) Thanks for these ideas Lauren! xoxo

  • Lauren Hoffman

    Love the last arrangement. Gerebra daisies are always a fave! I love fall arrangements because you get to mix different color families and they make sense. My step mom used to own a flower shop, so there were always huge, beautiful arrangements throughout the house.

  • Karen Vasco

    This post couldn’t have come at a better time! I’m trying to liven up my room in student housing & make it a little more “”me”” and so I wanted to do a floral arrangement. I find that buying artifical flowers is a little bit more reasonable for me though, because they last longer and it’s easier on my student budget lol Thanks for all these pretty pictures, definitely getting some great ideas! :)

  • Cluny Grey

    To make fresh flowers really affordable, get to know your closest florist and buy every week. Get 2 or 3 in season flowers that are larger blooms and fill in with inexpensive baby’s breath and/or other fillers that don’t cost much. It will really add to the overall look of the room’s elegance and will also be reasonable.

    Hugs, Cluny
