For florists autumn is an incredibly inspiring time of year. And as it’s rapidly approaching that time our sales team has been creating a variety of imaginative mood boards and colourways to meet more challenging client briefs.
Whilst Autumn colours usually suggest burnt oranges, dark browns and deepest reds just step outside and there are a vast array of tones and textures to tantalise your senses.
Blackberries taste better when picked in sunshine, so if you get the chance and the sun comes out, rush out with your buckets and grab some, and if you have a Bramley Apple tree in the garden then you’re halfway there. Simply ask your favourite caterer for a recipe- what a treat at this time of year! The thought of sweet fruit pies inspired our journey into a fruitier colour way for our autumn designs. Many venues don’t allow soft fruits in designs, which is why we have incredibly realistic artificial bunches (we defy you to tell the difference without trying to eat them!) It is the colours and textures of the fruits which give the designs that rich autumnal look. Creating an intimate, warm setting with rosy reds, palest peaches, darkest burgundies and berry pinks offers a juicy combination to entice and enthral guests on cooler Autumnal evenings.
As an alternative, the combination of powder blue with tan browns and cheerful cranberry red provides a fresh take on autumn. This softer palette embraces an earthy, organic feel, while achieving the warmth we oh-so-desire in the cooler Autumnal months.
As you can see from just two interpretations on what’s fitting for Autumnal designs, we’re spoilt for choice! Creating a mood board is something we do for all our clients, and if you would like us to prepare one for you just call Pips or one of her team and we’ll be able to help you out. As we’re fortunate enough to be accredited at more Unique Venues of London than any other florist, the likelihood is that we’ll be able to dress your event too!
