It’s October and the spookiest day of the year, Halloween, will be here before we know it. Many are preparing by decorating the front yard, stocking up on miniature candies, and picking out Halloween costumes. Others have already started the celebration with scary movie festivals, haunted house visits, and bags of candy corn. At Flower Kingdom in Palm Beach, we’re helping to spread the spirit of the season with festive floral arrangements and gifts designed especially for celebrating Halloween and the season of harvest.
Our Favorite Flowers, Themes, and Designs for Halloween Bouquets
Harvest Colors and Haunted Halloween Palettes
In October, two main color pallettes dominate floral design: autumn harvest and festive Halloween. Festive Halloween bouquets often feature blooms in playful holiday colors like pumpkin orange (gerbera daisies), slime green (green chrysanthemums), witchy purple (aubergine calla lilies and carnations), and midnight black (black roses and sprayed curly willow).
Autumn harvest bouquets feature the colors of the season like copper, gold, bronze, cottage red, burgundy, yellow, and orange. These arrangements often include sunset roses, bronze daisies, orange lilies, chrysanthemums, carnations, and sprays of fall foliage and berries. Perfect for a dining table centerpiece, autumn floral arrangements transition beautifully from October to November.
Cute Keepsake Containers
We especially love these long-lasting floral gifts. Floral arrangements designed with keepsake containers can be enjoyed for many holidays to come. One of our favorite keepsake container designs, Halloween Magic Bouquet, features a mix of carnations, mums, and lilies with fun fall embellishments, like black leaves, wheat, and curly willow. The best part of this bouquet is its grinning jack-o-lantern container, which comes complete with a pumpkin stem lid. This floral container easily converts from vase to candy jar come next season.
Embellishments can elevate even the most stunning floral arrangements, transforming them from visual beauties to attractive stunners that can also tell a story. The Boo-tiful Bats arrangement is an embellished favorite. In this design, a plump rising moon, curly willow, and black bats turn a simple seasonal arrangement of orange gerbera daisies, red and yellow chrysanthemums, and fall foliage into a wild scene from a spooky Halloween night. This arrangement will make your heart race with excitement as the brackish bats take wing!
