Fall Flower Arrangements: What Flowers and Colors to Add

Autumn is all about celebrating the harvest, and throughout history, this is symbolized by flower arrangements that often involve cornucopias. The cornucopia is shaped like a horn and is traditionally filled with delicious fruits, flowers, and grains of the harvest. Cornucopias symbolize abundance, thankfulness, and good fortune.  

One of the main components of the cornucopia is beautiful fall flowers, autumn leaves, and fall foliage, which is what we are going to explore today.

Let’s discover how to find the best fall flower arrangements and what flowers and colors you should add to create a stunning autumn arrangement. 

What are Some Popular Fall Flowers?

The leaves are changing colors, and the scent of pumpkin everything is in the air. Seeing and smelling the beautiful fall foliage is one of the most beloved parts of the season. 

When it comes to finding the most beautiful and popular fall flowers, you have come to the right place. Add a touch of autumn to your home or your office this year with one of our gorgeous fall flower arrangements. Fall flowers bring out the season’s richest hues and will bring life to your space.

Some of the most popular fall flowers and grasses include:

  • Roses
  • Chrysanthemums
  • Dahlias
  • Celosia
  • Purple Fountain Grass
  • Pampas Grass
  • Wheat
  • Black-Eyed Susan

Remember, if you go for a mix of bold flowers, use soft, tall grasses to fill out your arrangement. Or, if you opt for a more subtle look with tall, golden grasses, be sure to add one or two blooming flowers to make a statement. 

Whichever types of fall flowers you choose for your arrangement, your home will be filled with beauty and elegance this fall. 

What Are Fall Colors?

When it comes to the perfect fall flower arrangements, choosing the colors and shades of the flowers is an important step.

The colors most associated with fall are orange, yellow, red, and brown, which are inspired by the seasonal changing of the leaves. Other autumn colors that can highlight those traditional fall colors include gold, amber, ivory, and burgundy.

Here at Venus ET Fleur®, we delight in the creation of our Eternity® Roses, which are full of that beautiful fragrance that you love so much about roses. These crafted beauties are made to enjoy for months to come and will be the perfect addition to your fall decor. 

When you are designing your own flower arrangement this fall, be sure to choose bold autumnal colors of orange, yellow, red burgundy, and champagne. 

For a beautiful, soft, and sophisticated fall arrangement, choose a mix of light pink and white dahlias, yellow mums, and yellow beech leaves. Add these flowers to a beautiful muted brown vase to tie this look together.

If you want to feature more subtle colors of the harvest, make an arrangement of yellow sunflowers and golden button chrysanthemums. These colors of yellow, brown, and harvest gold will be sure to glow in your home. Add a fountain of red winterberry to your arrangement for a more dramatic look. Choose a darker vase to make a statement and bring cohesion to the space.

Placements of Fall Arrangements for Decor

Creating a stunning autumnal oasis filled with fall flowers is an amazing way to bring feelings of warmth, gratitude, and happy memories to your home this year. Adding arrangements of fall flowers and autumnal potpourri will be sure to make your home smell beautiful and look stunning.

Here are some ideas and inspiration on where to place fall arrangements to add a touch of fall decor to your home. 

The Entryway

Before diving into decorating the inside of your home, it’s important to add an elegant touch of autumn to your front door. Hang a colorful fall foliage wreath filled with colors of orange, red, green, yellow, and brown. 

Now, for the inside. Fresh fall florals will instantly bring light and fragrance to brighten up the entryway of your home this autumn. Place a beautiful arrangement of rose gold roses from our Maison Collection in your entryway to give your family and friends a grand welcome. 

A luxury rose arrangement will provide a hint of elegance and nature to your home and is breathtakingly beautiful. You could also add some tall, tan pampas grass in the entryway to provide a welcoming feel. 

The Living Room

The living room is easily the most used space in the home, which is why it should be at the top of the list when it comes to decorating. This is the room where families gather to spend time together, watch movies, talk, and where guests are entertained. Therefore, using seasonal decor to spruce up the living room will help your space to feel new and will encourage your family and guests to embrace the coziness of fall.

For decorating the living room, first start by adding some elegant, fall throw pillows to your sofa. Look for pillows with a soft, cozy texture that pulls colors from your other decor. For fall, try to find pillows in shades of orange, mustard yellow, creamy white, or black gingham plaid. 

Placing an ivory plush throw blanket on the couch will create a comfortable space for your family to cuddle up and watch a movie while completing this warm, posh fall look.

If you have a fireplace in your living room, you’ll want to place a large arrangement of fall flowers in the center of your mantle. Our Thalia vase filled with gorgeous champagne or orange roses will be the perfect autumn touch to your decor. Choose bold, warm colors, such as orange, yellows, or red, to bring life to your mantle. 

Add some colorful, velvet pumpkins to the sides of the mantle, an ornate gold clock, pictures of the family, or one of our luxurious signature candles to create a stunning focal point in your living room.  

Your Bedroom

Your bedroom should be a space filled with feelings of love, luxury, and relaxation. Some of the best fall evenings at home are spent cuddled up in bed with your favorite glass of wine (or maybe a homemade pumpkin spice latte) and watching a movie.

Decorating your bedroom for fall should consist of adding some simple, seasonal touches. Try adding some stunning candles to your nightstand or dresser and a single-stemmed champagne-colored Eternity Rose in our Florentina vase. For your bedding, use a new plush, plaid, comforter, or opt for a seasonal fall quilt.

After you are finished with your home decor, don’t forget to add a small and sophisticated fall flower arrangement to other spaces you frequent, such as your office.

Flowers in the Office

Lastly, there is nothing more beautiful than a bouquet of rich-colored fall roses in autumn's favorite hues of orange, gold, and yellow to brighten up your office at work. 

Not only will these fall flowers be beautiful, but having flowers and plants in the office is said to increase employee well-being and productivity. Studies also show that flowers in the office help with memory retention. Not to mention that all of your co-workers and clients will be in love with your beautiful fall blooms. 

Halloween Arrangement Ideas

All of the flower arrangements above will be the perfect fit for your fall decor this year, and they will also make for a beautiful and stunning Thanksgiving. However, if you and your family love to celebrate Halloween, there are some spookily, elegant arrangements that would be perfect for your home. 

For a vampire night full of surprises, take a look at our Petit Love Locks Box filled with blood-red roses… if you dare. Our Fleura Vase with silver roses will be a perfect piece for your moonlit soiree—it’s reminiscent of space, alchemy, and magic. For a more traditional Halloween look, we recommend an arrangement from our Le Clair Collection with orange roses. 

Fall Birth Flowers

As for fall birth flowers, the October birth flowers are marigolds and cosmos. Cosmos symbolize peace and tranquility. However, the marigold is a very powerful flower and is believed to lure souls back to the land of the living with its vibrant colors and powerful scents. The November birth flower is the chrysanthemum, which represents joy, happiness, and longevity, but in some countries, it is also given as a token of bereavement. 

These Halloween-inspired fall flower arrangements will be sure to make for a beautiful and elegant Venus Halloween. 

Final Remarks

All in all, a fall flower arrangement is a wonderful way to bring beauty, fragrance, and elegance to your home or office this fall. Make sure to choose bold, fall flowers with autumnal colors of orange, yellow, red, harvest gold, burgundy, and ivory. These colors will be a perfect fit to highlight the holidays of the fall season and are also a delightful addition to a cozy, fall night at home.

Consider all of the above factors carefully when creating your next fall flower arrangement, and you will be sure to fall in love with your florals.
