You may think of mums as that bushel of yellow s you put on your front stoop come Fall, but think again. Mums make a glorious appearance in arrangements that belong inside the home too. And then there’s dahlias, everyone’s favorite these days, and another seasonal bloom that, when added to a floral design, contributes a rich textural element and complexity. Decorating with mums and dahlias from Al’s Florist & Gifts is easy this season since we’re offering designs that range from romantic and moody to upbeat and cheerful.
These bouquets both make use of mums and dahlias, but they offer something different in terms of personality and color scheme. Our Autumn Gemstones bouquet is lush with orange roses, red lilies, alstroemeria, hypericum, and purple lisianthus, but it’s the burgundy dahlias that really elevate the piece. The darkest note in the grouping, the dahlias bring in the wine tones of the season, making this the perfect bouquet to send to your sweetie during the harvest time of year.
On the other hand, Candy Cornie was made for Halloween fun. A lively arrangement that would be perfect in the office, at home, or on the teacher’s desk in your kid’s classroom, this design is bursting with roses, gerberas, carnations, daisies, and yellow button mums. The latter adds a harvest-time feel to the group and help balance out the size of the larger s, mimicking the candy in the reusable container below. No need to limit yourself to choosing between mums or dahlias this season; both offer the best of Fall looks when added to a larger arrangement from Al’s Florist & Gifts.
