If we could, we’d find a way for all of the beautiful florals to be in season year round in our local markets. When working with special event florist and event design companies, it’s relatively easy to get popular party and wedding flowers year round, but possibly at a premium cost if they are not in their current season.
With fall just around the corner (we are ready for cooler weather), we are sharing our list of some favorite “in-season flowers” that are perfect for upcoming fall wedding bouquets and event decor. This is a fabulous way of supporting your local community and floral farms.
Traditional fall flowers and stems include roses, cosmos, gerbera daisies, and baby’s breath.
Don’t forget to also keep in mind what might be available in your own backyard! Branches, stems, and leaves from magnolia trees, palms, ferns, and other greenery are great for adding extra volume and oomph to your event florals. We hope our fall floral list will introduce you to some new ideas and give us the opportunity to introduce special colors, textures, and scents to add to your current repertoire.
