Halloween Tradition and Decor

As kids, Halloween was quite an exciting evening. The traditions, the costumes, the fun, the candy – we looked forward to this day all year long. Perhaps now that we are adults, the method of celebration has changed. But we can agree that we still love decorating and getting together with family and friends. At Blossom Flower Shop, we’ve created plenty of Halloween inspired bouquets and arrangements that will bring the “spirit” of the season into your home.

Warm up your home with this cozy arrangement of orange roses, daisies, mums, and alstroemeria – all nestled into a classic October pumpkin. For your home, for a hostess gift, or for a fun addition to the office, this is the perfect seasonal choice.

Did You Know?

Pumpkin carving was a tradition before it was associated with Halloween. It is not known exactly when we combined the jack o’lantern with October 31, but surely the pumpkin is an iconic symbol of the fall harvest which has long inspired festivals and celebrations. Because carved pumpkin lanterns were used for illumination by night watchmen, legend tells us that the term jack o’lantern first implied the person holding the lantern, but at some point the title was assigned to the pumpkin lantern itself – and it is now an established piece of Halloween tradition.

As visitors or trick-or-treaters walk up to your home, greet them warmly with bright seasonal mums. Lining your walkway or on your front porch, these beautiful flowers exude all the hospitality of the holiday. We’ve even added a mini pumpkin and colorful bow for the perfect display. Halloween tradition was never so welcoming.

Trick or Treat!

Over the centuries, there was a practice called “souling” in which the poor went door to door begging for food. Trick-or-treating is thought to have evolved from there. About 100 years ago, Halloween tradition saw more “tricks” than “treats”, so the custom was likely encouraged as a more favorable activity for the kids.

This year, come to Blossom Flower Shops for beautiful Halloween decor for your home. Just because we have grown up, doesn’t mean we have to stop celebrating.
