Creating a Fall Garden Floral- www.gildedbloom.com

Our fall garden is beginning to bloom at last as we welcome October with cool weather and raindrops.   It is a beautiful time of year to design arrangements from the garden, and creating a fall floral using homegrown flowers mixed with a market bouquet is an easy way to enjoy the garden indoors.

Choosing a few key homegrown stems and combining them with a complementary mix of store-bought flowers can create a dazzling autumn arrangement.  I chose these peach roses for a focal point as they are large and spectacular this season and have a beautiful scent.

Orange garden dahlias and zinnias in a soft antique pink are also sourced from home.

To bring an autumn glow to the peachy-pink tones of the garden flowers, I selected a market bouquet with deep, rich fall colors and textured foliage.

Orange mums add warmth and texture and their color pops next to dusty green eucalyptus branches.

Variegated burgundy mums pick up the pink in the zinnias but add a deep fall hue, while cherry brandy roses mix in a vibrant berry and golden orange color.

To keep the arrangement from looking too formal, I usually place the largest blooms first, then add filler flowers and foliage in an asymmetrical pattern.  This results in an unstructured, flowing design that reflects the way flowers grow in nature.

As there are so many beautiful blooms to enjoy during the autumn months, I hope you will create a natural floral design of your own.  Happy Fall!
