Where Do Fall Color Schemes Come From 

Have you ever wondered why the colors we choose for fall are reds, oranges, gold, russet, bronze, purples, yellows, and more? That’s because these are the colors of the flowers that bloom in the fall. You can stick to nature to create the best indoor flower arrangements and always hit the mark.

The best flowers to use are chrysanthemums, dahlias, hydrangeas, sunflowers, sweetgum branches and more. Just look at nature to see what is there. If you need dried flowers and plants, you can dry them yourself, order them online, or go to your local hobby store to find what you need.
