That first barely noticeable touch of cool air swiftly brushing our cheek brings feelings of relief, that the hot days of summer are ending, and anticipation, for the brisk, lovely season of fall that is headed our way. Fall is the perfect time of year – still warm enough to enjoy outdoor activities without bitter cold and snow, and a wonderland of amazing visuals from Mother Nature to fill us with awe and reverence. And the festivals! It’s Harvest Time, after all! Corn mazes, apple picking, pumpkin carving, and spiced cider drinks abound. Besides the undeniably pleasant weather, autumn brings out new colors that paint the landscape in rich, darker hues that are both inviting and enchanting.
The colors of fall are so distinct that the Pantone Color Institute releases its Top 10 Colors of Fall each year from which designers, artists, and shoppers draw. The colors they selected for 2021 are a whimsically named variety of deep tones and vibrant hues. Evoking feelings of calm and comfort along with joy and excitement, you’ll find plenty of gorgeous fall hues in all of our Autumn floral arrangements. At Zeidler’s Flowers, we love showcasing the abundance of orange, yellow, red, and purples on display in nature during this time. Follow along with us as we list Pantone’s top fall colors and the flowers that match.
Pantone’s Fall Color Trends & Your Favorite Fall Flowers
Hunter green is typically a popular color for the fall, but this year Pantone highlights “leprechaun” and “olive branch” hues. Representing good luck and peace, these shades of green are sure to please. Beautiful shades of green can be found in orchids and hydrangea. Succulents and natural greenery are also great sources of this lovely earthy hue.
Light and deep blues are in this fall. Pantone’s Mykonos Blue, Spring Lake, and Rhodonite describe the beautiful shades of blues found in the autumn. Promoting feelings of relation and calm, blue florals are always a wonderful addition to any arrangement. Look for blue-colored flowers such as delphinium, Bellflowers, hydrangea, cornflowers, irises, and forget-me-nots.
Pantone’s “illuminating yellow” is considered one of the top colors of the year. This uplifting, vibrant and happy hue is also in the lineup of trendy fall colors. You’ll find a gorgeous range of bright yellows and many fall arrangements in the form of roses, mums, daisies, sunflowers gladiolus, and yellow billy balls.
More typical of a summer color than fall, light pinks and fuchsia are trending in the fall according to Pantone. Their “pale rosette” and “fuchsia fedora” add flirty and graceful notes to the fall season. So, go ahead and enjoy your favorite pink florals such as pink roses, carnations, Peruvian lilies, calla lilies, and gladiolus!
Whether it’s a vibrant fiery red or a warm brownish-red, this hue is a popular fall color every year, and 2021 is no exception. Pantone’s red shade “fire whirl” is their selection for representing fall reds. Display this color in your home with beautiful red roses, carnations, dahlias, or mums.
You’ll see Pantone’s brown shades in “adobe” and “root beer” everywhere you look this autumn season. Brownish hues sure are perfect accent colors in bouquets adding depth and contrast to the vibrantly colored blooms. Add shades of brown in the form of branches, brown mums, and seed pods.
Fall flower arrangements are a wonderful way to celebrate the season and add gorgeous seasonal hues to your home. Fresh, living florals freshen up the space as well as adding a natural touch of elegance. Find your favorite fall colors in one of our gorgeous autumn arrangements at Zeidler’s Flowers.
