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!

If you decide to make a fall flower arrangement, snap a photo and post it to your profile page. Who knows…your photograph could end up in a Friday Favorites.
