A Season of Abundance
In a season of abundance, make full use of those richly colored flowers and foliage that flourish in the transition from summer into fall. Protea and Leucadendron come an array of hues, and when paired with other seasonal blooms, they add character to your design. Pictured here, I used a mix of botanicals, including dahlias, zinnias, amaranths, yarrow, Australian pine, fruited branches, and banksia integrifolia with cones - placed in a rustic ceramic container.
Not all crops come in the traditional fall hues of reds, oranges, and yellows. Bring in new colors and textures with fruit, whether tucked amongst the floral centerpiece or displayed off to the side to polish off the vignette. In this design, I used a mix of protea, a banksia, grevillea blooms and Leucadendron, Amaryllis Belladonna, dahlias, hydrangea, eucalyptus, and passion fruit.
When autumn calls for an extra special arrangement, a cornucopia brimming with fresh flowers and fruit will surely do the trick.
So, gather up your favorite fruit, flowers + foliage and create something beautiful!
