Could beautiful flowers ever be scary? Well, probably not. But what they can do is add a colourful freshness to a Halloween display in any home or at any event. Whether it’s a pumpkin filled with flowers and plants or make the most of Halloween colours, there’s sure to be an arrangement to capture the essence of October 31st, Halloween!
What is Halloween?
Halloween is the most common name, but Halloween is also known as Hallowe’en (a contraction of Hallows’ Even or Hallows’ Evening), Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve and All Saints’ Eve. On October 31st Halloween is celebrated in several countries over the world. This is the evening of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. With Halloween starts a three-day observance of Allhallowtide. These days are all about remembering the dead and all faithful departed.
Pumpkins and flowers for Halloween
A great combination for Halloween? Pumpkins and flowers of course! Instead of lighting a candle inside a pumpkin, how about filling the orange squash with any seasonal flowers? The pumpkins can be hollowed out to make a vase. So, fill it with some water and arrange the flowers. If you wish to carve a face into your pumpkin, be careful to only pour water to below the holes! Perfect to put on display in our flower shop to show customers how to style flowers for Halloween.
Let’s embrace Halloween colours
Orange is the most popular colour at this time of year, so any orange arrangements can make great Halloween displays. But there are more colours that fit with Halloween. For example: black, dark red, burned orange, dark yellow and even brown. Consider adding brown leaves to the arrangement to create an autumnal feel or use the black calla lily, dark red roses and yellow gerberas for a dark and autumnal twist.
