It’s October, and Halloween will soon be sneaking up to scare us! Lots of people are busy making preparations for the holiday by stocking up on candy, decorating their front yards to welcome trick-or-treaters, and picking out costumes for the big night. Others have already started the celebration with scary movie marathons, costume parties, and pumpkin carving. At Zeidler’s Flowers, our Evansville floral designers have been busy creating fun, festive designs to celebrate the spookiest season of the year!
Our Favorite Flowers, Designs, and Themes for Halloween Arrangements
Color can make or break a Halloween arrangement. The best Halloween floral designs use the fun, festive colors of the season like black, orange, purple, green, and white in ghostly designs. We also love to incorporate the colors of autumn in slightly more elegant seasonal designs, using hues of orange, yellow, red, burgundy, gold, copper, and bronze.
Orange roses make a great statement in a Halloween arrangement. They pair well with blooms in other Halloween colors, like purple and green. Plus, they’re beautiful and elegant. We love the impact of orange roses in an otherwise all-yellow design, just like our Sparkling Cider bouquet, which features orange roses and yellow Viking pomps.
Cheerful chrysanthemums are Halloween’s favorite flower. They’re in-season during this time of year, so potted varieties will be in bloom for a long time. Mums come in all sorts of fun colors and varieties that are perfect for Halloween floral designs. We particular love the green spider chrysanthemums featured alongside orange carnations and boo-tiful sparkling bat accents in our Jack-O’-Lantern arrangement.
Not only are these flowers slime-green, but they’re also half of the iconic “trick or treat,” making them pretty spot-on for Halloween floral arrangements. Green trick looks eerie and interesting, too. These odd pom-pom like blooms add a strangely fuzzy texture to a Halloween arrangement. Perfect for a witch’s brew or to fill in an arrangement with bright colors. Green trick makes an appearance in our Pretty Pumpkin design, along with succulents, berries, white pomp, and orange roses.
Keepsake containers are the gift that keeps on giving, and, with so many different ghoulish creatures and characters to choose from, they’re especially fun for Halloween. We absolutely love our Pumpkin Patch arrangement, and we think you will, too! It features a variety of carnations, mini carnations, Viking pomp, and hypericum berries — all bursting from a ceramic pumpkin container, complete with pumpkin stem lid. Whether you order this arrangement for yourself or for a friend, you’ll be sure to enjoy using the pumpkin as a candy jar for many autumns to come!
