Before you consider ideas that seem to be trendy these days, it’s necessary to get your color pallet ready and think about fall colors. Whether you are trying to create a flower arrangement or set up furnishing to make your presentation grand, you might want to consider the emotions involved with each fall color. Considering the color of each fall color will allow you to create your environment with the theme you are trying to convey.

Brown is a natural color and will bring all of your arrangements and decorations down to earth. During the fall season we reflect on the bountiful goodness the earth has provided for us and having brown among your contrasts is super important. Since brown is a more down to earth color, it tends to give you a feeling of comfort and calm. It is a very important balance. We have some floral varieties with lovely shades of brown such as: Chocolate Mini Calla Lilies, chocolate cosmos flower,chocolate dahlia flowers, and many others.


Black is the strongest of all colors and is the contrast and highlight of all the fall colors. It is the defining lines between everything. When you are using black you must be careful because it has the ability to create emotions such as: fear, unhappiness, anger, sadness and many other negative emotions. With this in mind, please use this color wisely. If you are planning on having a Halloween get together, then you will want to use more of it. If you are looking for a more happy experience, then use less of it. Please experiment for just the right touch.

Gold is a color that is seen on the changing leaves and is the love child of yellow and brown. It is a color associated with prosperity and wealth. When the leaves turn golden, they show their value and their importance in nature. Gold looks well as a backdrop for decorations and floral arrangements and is the surprising sparkle for a fall get together.


This is also another color associated with wealth and prosperity and is also seen in the changing colors of the season. It can be a more masculine color, but adding a feminine contrast will make it the perfect harmony for your fall event. Be careful however, not to get too carried away with it. It can also be a color associated with a repressed mind. It’s just like preparing your favorite recipe, sometimes you need many different spices, but with certain spices. A little goes a long way.
