Depending on how you like to celebrate the season, the spirit of Halloween can represent many different things. For some, it’s a time of abundance represented by harvest and hoards of candy. For others, it’s a time for play, dressing up in costumes, bobbing for apples, and gathering with friends and family. At Bosland’s Flower Shop in Wayne, New Jersey, Halloween represents a time for creating fun, festive floral arrangements infused with the spirit of the season!
Our Favorite Flowers, Themes, and Ideas for Halloween Floral Designs
We love and highly recommend using everything pumpkin in your Halloween and harvest floral designs. In fact, to truly capture the spirit and fun of the season, we go as far as carving actual pumpkins to use as containers for our arrangements! Miniature pumpkins also look fun and whimsical, popping out of a variety of fall flowers or tied around a basket with a pretty autumn-colored ribbon. When it comes to pumpkins and Halloween floral arrangements, the main rule is that you can’t go wrong!
If you’re creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere with your Halloween decorations, we recommend focusing on design elements that represent the harvest, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, and autumn colors. Our Harvest Gathering arrangement is the perfect example of everything we hope for during the harvest season. This abundant arrangement features a basket of freshly picked artichokes and miniature pumpkins spilling from a bed of autumn-colored roses, lilies, and chrysanthemums. Accented with golden wheat, willow branches, and ripe berries, this arrangement features grace, elegance, and a plentiful table.
Autumn Garden Blooms
The first step to designing a floral arrangement around a theme is selecting a color palette. If you’re looking to create a spooky bouquet, we recommend black, orange, yellow, purple, and green. To achieve a harvest bouquet, you can select from a wide range of colors, but it’s best to keep the primary color elements within warm tones like yellow, orange, gold, red, burgundy, and bronze. For example, our Autumn Garden Blooms basket arrangement uses some of fall’s favorite colors to provide a sunny, fresh take on a harvest-themed design. It features soft yellow snapdragons and sunflowers, paired with deep orange lilies, wheat, and willow twigs.
Spread Halloween Happiness with Gift Baskets and Flowers
One of the best ways to prepare your home for Halloween, in addition to stocking up on candy, is by decorating with floral arrangements designed especially for October. We recommend adorning your home with harvest-themed centerpieces, in addition to potted mums and carved pumpkins near the front door. You can also celebrate and spread the spirit of Halloween by sending spooky flowers and candy-filled gift baskets to your friends, family, and favorite trick-or-treaters.
Whether you’re celebrating an October birthday, anniversary, or the excitement of the season, Bosland’s Flower Shop has the perfect Halloween floral arrangements for you! To view our selection, we welcome you to drop by our flower shop or order online. From all of us to all of you, happy haunting!
