"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby)

The beauty of autumn is now upon us as we settle in to the season with pumpkins on the porch and magnificently colorful leaves falling from the trees.  Autumn has always been a favorite season of mine, and like Fitzgerald, I see it as a time of new beginnings.  I always look forward to sweater weather, a pot of hot soup on the stove, planting bulbs in the garden, and of course, the quintessential taste of the season- pumpkin spice!  

This fall bouquet of vivid orange zinnias, mixed with peachy-pink dahlias, blush lisianthus, and mustard yellow amaranth captures the mood of autumn with its spicy hues and rustic texture.  It was a pleasure to style and also to paint!

A simple metallic gold vase highlights the warm colors in the bouquet and provides an opulent finish to complement the varied texture of the flowers.

Dahlias in a pale warm pink soften the bouquet with their ombre color and elegant rolled petals.

Bright orange zinnias add earthy texture and a pop of color.  These traditional autumn hues remind me of pumpkin spice!  Happy fall!
