November is right around the corner. That means it’s a great time to start thinking about Thanksgiving flowers. Autumn centerpieces and bouquets can brighten your home or make lovely gifts. But there are so many flower delivery options from which to choose. How do you pick the perfect flower bouquet or centerpiece?
Bouquets of the season feature large blooms in bright and warm colors. Look for orange roses, yellow and orange lilies, yellow sunflowers, red carnations, and gerbera daisies in a multitude of hues. The harvest season is a great time to incorporate fruits and veggies into an arrangement. Display your favorite harvest bouquets in a hollowed-out gourd. Or accent them with various berries or even ears of Indian corn.
Brilliantly colored autumn leaves also make a great choice. But since they tend to fade quickly, timing is an important consideration.
Here are some of our favorite bouquets of the season. Each is available to order online for quick and simple flower delivery!
This lovely flower bouquet features a range of colors. It has orange, red, and violet flowers with dark greenery and bright red hypericum berries. And the calla lilies come from a Rainforest Alliance certified farm in Ecuador. So you can feel great about your purchase too!
The bright yellow sunflowers and button mums in this bouquet are nicely contrasted with brilliant orange carnations.
