Flaurel Laurel falls for autumn colors

“Vivid colors and textures for fall arrangements”

That snap in the air means it’s time for leaves to turn, pumpkins to ripen and mums to come into full flower – there’s no mistaking that fall is here!

This is my personal favorite of the seasons, since I love the rich colors and the varied textures available in the autumn.  It’s so much fun to wander the flower market checking out all the unique foliage, berries, pods and gourds that we have to play with this time of year.

Adding fruits and vegetables, such as artichokes, pears and small lady apples gives a seasonal twist – we even use chili peppers!

Rustic containers such as wood, bark or rusted iron complement the textures and colors of the season and add a richness of character to arrangements.
