Vibrant colours in vogue for Autumn
As the cooler days and months decend and we start thinking that our cold winter is around the corner, never despair, there are always beautiful blooms for every season! And I must say that at Eufloria, autumn blooms have been gorgeous and have been a breath of fresh air for our weddings, events and special occasions!
The autumn blooms are beautiful, vibrant and can brighten up any occasion, rain, hail or shine! We think they will also be a popular choice for celebrating Mother's Day on 13 May!
Our autumns are characterized by the changing colors and synonymous with us witnessing leaves turning a rich oranges, bronzes and reds... but many varieties of flowers just begin blooming! So, Rose and I thought we might share some of our favourite blooms for autumn;
Kiera's flower of autumn is:
The flower of the season for me! The purple, blue, mauve shades are amazing but you can't go wrong with white, pink, yellow and red too! These are a bulbous plant with trumpet-shaped floret arranged tightly on leafless stalk. Hyacinths can be utilised as a cut flower, keep cool at all times and replace water every day. Their fragrance is delightful!
Rose's autumn bloom of choice is:
These blooms are mainly of blue and mauve colouring, from the palest baby-blue to darkest indigo, they are also available in shades of pink and white. Delphiniums are a wonderful vase flower due to their vivid colours and their structure and height. Another favourite of the season for Eufloria!
Some other beautiful, vibrant blooms of the season are:
The Cristata (Cockscomb) have fan-shaped flower heads which resemble coral and they are commonly called 'brains' for this reason! I think the popular colour for the season is the vivid cerise, although it also comes in a gorgeous yellow too... these velvet blooms are a favourite of ours.
Vibrantly coloured dahlias will brighten any room in your home or be certainly enjoyed by all in any office. The different varieties can be enjoyed in the pinks to purples shades; reds to maroons, oranges to yellows and white. These are in high demand for the wedding season!
Lisianthus is a very popular cut flower and give extended pleasure of up to three weeks in a vase. Available in many colours including cream, green, pink, purple, white and yellow. These beauties sell out as soon as they hit the shop front so pre-ordering is a must!
These are very popular due to the resemblance to the Tiger Lily. They are pinkish/red flowers with yellow-edged petals and they have long lasting vase life. Exotic and quite rare to see at the markets, they bring great delight to our flower bench when we find them and we always love including them in our arrangements when we are lucky enough to have them to use!
We love autumn blooms but I have to confess that every changing season is my favourite! With each new season, it's a promise of new beginnings and I always love the surprise of the arrival of fresh seasonal blooms at the markets on each trip I make!
I know I am spoilt to work with glorious fresh flowers every day, so whilst I can pick a bloom of each season ... an overall favourite bloom is very hard to pick... so, I have to sit on the fence and honestly say that my weakness is for anything fragrant! The smells of some of our beautiful blooms literally take me on a nostalgic journey to my Nan and Pop???s gorgeous garden.... which was just magic!
So, Rose and I want to know what blooms you love?... Do you have a favourite of the season... or what season do you most look forward to for your favourite blooms?
