Creating Haunted Flower Arrangements for Your Haunted Mansion

Spooky season is the time to pull out the sweaters, dim the lights, light your favorite candles, tune into Halloween movies, and transform your home into a haunted mansion through seasonal decor and fresh floral arrangements. With so many fall flowers to choose from at Bosland’s Flower Shop, the best florist in Wayne, NJ, we want to ensure you find the spookiest, creepiest, and eeriest blooms to fit your haunted aesthetic. From dark and muted color palettes to unexpected seasonal textures – and we cannot forget creepy shapes and Halloween elements – there are all sorts of ways to design a bouquet fit for a haunted mansion without turning to the traditional bright orange and the cute spookiness of Halloween.

Vase Choices

One of the first things you need to consider when selecting or creating a creepy arrangement is the vase that holds the flowers. For a spooky Halloween option, turn to jack-o-lanterns, skulls, cauldrons, and even vintage teapots that offer an eerie haunted house look. You can also find seriously spooky arrangements in classic-shaped vases that are black, gray, green, or a muted tone of your favorite fall color.

Deep & Dark Colored Blooms

It’s no surprise that many haunted floral bouquets incorporate black and dark-colored blooms, like deep purple calla lilies, red amaranthus, black baccara roses, and even burgundy, red, or brown sunflowers. While some of these stems are great to admire all year round, others steal the spotlight during the fall season. Nonetheless, their striking, almost black hues bring something new and eerie to Halloween and spooky season.

Light & Ghostly Colored Blooms

Another element that offers a dose of spook during this season is drastic contrast. While the black and dark hues bring the drama, white flowers will add ghostly elements to the arrangement. White ranunculus, quicksand roses, white chrysanthemums, especially white spider mums, and even dusty miller will chillingly complement the moody blooms. Using these white flowers sparingly and in a bespoke style can mimic ghosts floating or dancing above headstones.

Fall Accents

Flowers alone can be the perfect addition to your haunted home decor, but kicking it up a notch by incorporating seasonal accents will scream autumn. Purple filler flowers and scabiosa pods are always great accents to any fall blooms. Bending branches into hair-raising shapes, adding feathers to pay homage to ravens or crows, and utilizing dried floral elements will undoubtedly bring an authentic Halloween haunt and seasonal notes to the design.

Halloween Elements

The final piece to the puzzle is accessorizing with classic Halloween decor. Place your arrangement among skeleton hands, black cats, eyeballs, bats, spiders, a witch’s spellbook, crystals, and other spooky surprises to create a frightening display in your home. Whether you adorn a full display on a mantel, table, or countertop, there is no better way to bring your haunted house to life.

Start decorating your haunted mansion and prepare for “spooky season” with fresh autumn arrangements from Bosland’s Flower Shop. The perfect eerie and creepy Halloween aesthetic can always be achieved through Mother Nature.
