Autumn Flower Guide

In today’s post I am sharing with you some of my tips on how to start your own wedding and event floristry business. Starting with the first fundemental question you need to ask yourself. 

Hello lovelies, hope your week is going well? The day’s have definitely got chillier over the last couple of weeks, Autumn is definitely in the air don’t you think? As sad as I am that summer is over I am also looking forward to snuggling up & getting my boots back out of the wardrobe (I’m a sucker for a pair of boots!). I love the warm colours that Autumn brings too; burnt oranges, yellows, reds and burgundies are probably one of my most favourite colour pallets. With that in mind I wanted to share with you our Autumn flower guide, showcasing what this beautiful season has to offer.

Dahlia’s come out in force during the late summer & Autumn months & I have to say they are one of my favourite flowers of the Autumn s season. The colours are so stunning from vibrant reds, oranges, pinks, corals, purples they really do add the ‘wow’ factor to flower arrangements. The British Dahlia’s pictured below have huge size heads on them too perfect for larger size displays like urns or archways.


What a beauty the Cafe Au Lait dahlia (pictured below) is you can see why it is so popular, hey? It’s soft blush tone works beautifully in lighter colour wedding schemes.

Another wonderful thing about Autumn is the textures, all the berries viburnum and blackberries to name just a couple. The darker toned foliages such as continus and the seeded eucalyptus is at it’s best this time of year. Sanguisorba is a great filler flower too for adding a final finishing touch to designs.

Cosmos, which comes in punchy pinks, reds and whites and my favourite variety chocolate which would you believe actually smells of chocolate too! Both pictured below with an array of other ingredients including red anenomes which start to come back into season during September and crocosmia available in yellows and burnt orange.

Gemma’s stunning bridal bouquet from last weekend was made up of an array of Autumnal flowers which included; chocolate cosmos, crocosmia, berries, sedum, astilbe and anenome.

So Autumn, not to shabby after all? Here’s to Autumn leaves, conkers, pumpkins and of course flowers. What’s your favourite season of the year & why?
