Rustic Roses For Fall RomanceSpring isn’t the only season for romance. Fall is the perfect time to show your sweetie how much you care. The weather’s turning cold — time for cuddling under blankets and sipping hot cocoa. Start the mood off right by bringing home a bunch of rustic roses!

Send The Beauty of Fall Through Flowers

The Beauty of Fall ColorsThere’s nothing more beautiful than a good fall. This year, fall has came early to many areas of North America. Because of the intense drought we saw this summer, fall 2012 is predicted to be one of the most beautiful and colorful autumns we’ve seen in a long time. Here in Arkansas, the leaves are just about to turn, and I know I couldn’t be more excited.

With our dwindling daylight and cooler overnight temps, you could be just now seeing hints of fall color, or might have already seen the peak of your fall beauty. No matter what the case, you can easily enjoy the beauty of fall. Order flowers for yourself, your home, and friends!

Take advantage of the season before it’s gone! Be sure to get out for a long, Sunday drive. Go camping. Visit a local state park. Just get outside and enjoy it while it lasts!

Discover the Treasures of Fall Flowers

Discover Fall Treasures In Flowers

This year seems to have flown by. Can you believe it will be October in just a couple of days? For October, we’ve chosen Fall Treasures to be our favorite flower arrangement of the month. It’s the perfect arrangement to discover the fantastic flowers of fall. Sunflowers, roses, carnations, and snapdragons – all in the harmonious hues of the season.

Fall Treasures can be sent to yourself or a friend as a little pick-me-up to get a jump-start on the fall season. I know what you’re thinking, “I can’t send flowers to myself..” Of course you can! Sometimes it pays to treat yourself once in a while, especially before you jump head first into the upcoming holiday season.

Of course, sending flowers to a friend or loved one is almost doubly rewarding. If you know someone who could use a fresh start this fall, why send this arrangement and let them discover Fall Treasures for themselves?

Just remember, always always ALWAYS use a local florist when sending flowers. If you don’t know the local florist in the city you would like to send flowers, use our handy florist finder to find them directly.

The Colors of Fall – Trends for 2012

Possibly the most beautiful season of all, the colors of autumn are something we look forward to all year. The rustic reds, dusty oranges, and saffron yellows tantalize our senses like no other hues. However, it’s often the POP of accent color that takes everyone by surprise.

Last year, a washed-denim blue was a popular favorite. It was everywhere you would see fall color — wedding flowers, fashion trends, and especially home decor. This fall, blue is back but in even more colors and shades. You will also see a lot of unexpected colors, such as: lime greens, purples, magentas and other jewel tones.

2012 Fall Flower Color Trends

Let’s take a look at a few fashion-inspired color palettes you can use for your fall flowers and decorating.

Fall–The Garden’s Grand Finale

Fall is my garden’s grand finale, the last big hurrah of color before the long hibernation of winter. As the multitude of green hues of spring and summer fade, leaves begin to change color with the crisp cool air and sunny shortened days.

The fall season showcases plants in a rich palette of jewel tones—deep regal purples, pale lavenders, rich russet reds, the punch of orange, velvety maroons, sunny yellows and amber-like golds.

Fall blooms tend to last the longer, too, in both the garden and in bouquets—an added bonus to late season gardening! Try adding some of these plants below to bring jewel tones to your own garden. Many work beautifully as cut flowers for stunning bouquets that can bring the season indoors.

Helichrysum Bracteatum (Strawflower)Strawflowers (Helichrysum Bracteatum)


Strawflowers (Helichrysum Bracteatum) are “everlasting” annual flowers that can also be dried for winter bouquets. Hardy up to frost, they prefer sun to partial shade and are drought-tolerant. Native to Australia, where they grow as wildflowers, they come in a wide range of hues: yellow, orange, red, rose, white and pink, as well as this two-tone variety.


One of my favorite flowers to grow and photograph is the perennial Spiderwort (Tradescantia x Andersoniana). These unusual three-petaled flowers grow in clusters and work as excellent filler flowers in arrangements. Other varieties include ‘Snow Cap’ (pure white), ‘Valor’ (deep purple-red), and ‘Concorde Grape’ (deep violet).

The original Spiderwort species, an easy-care favorite in country gardens, is Virginia Spiderwort (Tradescantia virginiana). It is one of the longest bloomers in my garden—putting on a show from June until fall. Spiderwort prefers full sun or very light shade for the most prolific blooming. It can be also grown indoors as a houseplant.

Feeling Fall-ish?

Fall is the wonderful transition from the sizzling summer to ice cold winter; the time when the weather is just perfect. It’s almost like a second spring that’s even more beautiful: with flowers blooming and colorful trees turning their autumn colors. Overall, it’s just a wonderful season to be celebrated while it lasts.

Fall HistoryFall Flowers

Before the 16th century, harvest was the term used to refer to the season. However, as more people moved away from farming to living in towns, the word harvest lost its reference and came to refer to only the actual activity of reaping, and autumn, as well as fall, began to replace it as a reference to the season. Although we do not call it harvest anymore, we still use many references from harvesting in our fall decor: cornucopias, wheat, gourds and pumpkins, corn, hay, etc.

Why We Love Fall

Fall is arguably the favorite of all seasons. Everyone loves the colors of fall and seasonal decor during this time is a MUST in most homes. You will see hay, pumpkins scarecrows as yard decor all season. Some of our favorite holiday parties happen during fall: Halloween & Thanksgiving. Halloween pumpkin carving is a favorite fall activity that dates back to the 1700s and Thanksgiving is all about celebrating the bounty of fall. American Football also gets everyone together for a party. Long fall nights are made for spending time indoors with family and friends.
