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.
Mason Jars with Stones and Flowers
Mason Jars – Using Mason jars filled with stones from the river and water, you can add sunflowers, yellow mums, orange carnations and various greenery tied off with some thin rope to add to the rustic look. You can use these as centerpieces or you can make several of them to line up at the back of your buffet.

Wooden Box and Wildflowers Arrangement
Think Outside the Flower – Instead of using flowers, use a wood or pottery bowl and fill with fall items such as gourds, tiny pumpkins, greenery from outdoors, leaves, and more. This will make a wonderful centerpiece laid across a burlap table runner.

Wicker Basket – Go to the Goodwill and look for old wicker baskets. Insert floral foam, find dried fall flowers, sticks, and pinecones to insert in an attractive arrangement.

Old Cowboy Boots as Flower Arrangement
Old Boots – A whimsical idea for fall flower arrangements is to use a pair of old leather cowboy boots. Clean them up but leave the rustic look, then use floral foam to anchor the arrangement with tall flowers and branches. It’ll make a great entryway rustic flower arrangement.
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.
