As autumn begins its approach, our thoughts turn to the colors marking the occasion - deep reds and oranges, striking yellows and maybe a dash of purple here and there. There are few pleasures greater than heading out and enjoying the beautiful foliage. But who says you have to leave your home to enjoy the colors of fall? With the right floral arrangements, you can bask in the warm glow of autumnal hues any time you like. If you're not sure what blooms would be best for this purpose, here are a few of the flowers that could work well.
An arrangement of deep blue irises, with orange tulips and lilies, creates a beautiful contrast that will immediately capture the attention of anyone who sees it. With proper care, they'll last a fair amount of time, which is great if you'd like to bring a lasting visual flair into your home. These flowers are modest but elegant, and would look great on some unused counter space or in the middle of your dinner table.
A bouquet of Peruvian lilies will have a similar effect, though you can fit many more into a single vase. Some people have been known to squeeze as many as 100 of these into a container, creating a dramatic visual centerpiece that you'll be proud to call your own. You can mix up colors with these, too, forging a veritable explosion of the autumn aesthetic.
Even roses can work in this instance. These days, we're able to make them practically any color we'd like, so there's no reason you can't put a dozen blooms of various hues into a vase. They expand outward and look stunning no matter where you decide to put them.
Autumn is a season filled with vitality. Though winter looms in the distance, it's a time when we can enjoy cooler temperatures and some of the most dazzling visual displays Mother Nature can throw at us. Getting outside and exploring the fall foliage is always a treat, but sometimes we can't find the time to do so. At these moments, having a delightful bouquet of flowers in our homes can remind us of how beautiful it can be out there.
