Happy October, autumn, and Halloween!

In addition to picking out costumes, stocking up on candy, and carving pumpkins, sending festive flowers to your family and friends in October is one of the best ways to spread the spirit of the season! Our talented florists are here to share some of their favorite fall, harvest, and Halloween floral designs with you.
Our Favorite Flowers for Halloween Designs
1. Pincushion Protea
Our favorite Halloween flower is the pincushion protea. These blooms come in awesome fall tones and have a fun and funky texture, like a pincushion, that is perfect for spooky arrangements and harvest designs alike! Our Autumn Sunset arrangement cleverly features sunset-colored protea alongside a variety of other lush, garden blooms. This design provides a fresh take on the harvest bouquet, with a rainbow of deep burgundy, soft greens, and light pink flowers, This design truly feels like a sunset in October.
Dahlia are cousins of another species of favorite autumn flowers, chrysanthemums. Featuring sharper petals, a range of sizes and textures, and an equally vibrant variety of colors, dahlias can be beautifully and creatively incorporated in harvest and Halloween floral designs. For October, we especially love the burgundy dahlias and also make good use of the rainbow of yellows, orange, gold, and rust-colored varieties.
3. Garden Roses
Roses add a touch of elegance to both Halloween and harvest floral designs. Depending on the variety, they can provide very different effects. Black roses feel macabre and spooky in a Halloween bouquet, while more natural colors create a warm, gentle look. Our Autumn Essence design makes perfect use of delicate garden roses. In this rectangular arrangement, perfect for a dining table, just blooming roses open up to petals of variegated yellow and pink. They’re surrounded by lush autumn greenery, burgundy dahlias, and blooms of soft yellow and lavender.
Thistles come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, such as deep blues and purples to vibrant pink. We love to use globe thistles for their thorny, pom-pom like appearance. They add a sharp texture to a variety of arrangements featuring softer flowers.
5. Millet and Wheat
Perfect for a Halloween harvest floral design, cones of golden millet and milky sprigs of wheat provide physical representations of the bounty harvest provides. Floral arrangements accented with grains, like these, will help you celebrate autumn and keep you warm with memories of autumn through the winter.
