The autumn season has arrived! From the desire to wear your favorite sweater and drink a hot beverage by the fire to the chill you feel as you step outside, there is no doubt that fall is in the air. As the seasons change, so do the magnificent seasonal blooms. This autumn, be prepared to spot the trendy jewel tone spectrum with flowers that offer rich, deep, and regal hues. Jewel tones are a popular fall color palette that mirrors precious gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. They offer a cozy, warm, and welcoming feel that goes hand-in-hand with the fresh and brisk feel of autumn in addition to brilliant fall foliage. Here at George’s Flowers, the best florist in Roanoke, we are highlighting our favorite fall flowers with jewel-toned hues that create the most remarkable seasonal arrangements.
A Cozy Rainbow of Jewel-Toned Blooms
Cool blue like sapphire, blue thistle is a common accent to spot in sensational fall arrangements. While their jewel-toned hue is enough to lure you in, their unique shape and spikey petals add a level of excitement, regality, and unexpectedness when nestled among soft, round, fluffy blooms.
One of the showstoppers of autumn flowers, the orange dahlia, is large, bold, and multidimensional, with many layers of quirky petals. Their warm, jewel-tone orange hue screams fall while mirroring the gemstone citrine and symbolizing elegance and positivity.
Golden yellow sunflowers are another warm jewel-tone bloom that many people simply adore. Their brilliance lights up any room or arrangement, while the dark undertone of a sunflower’s iconic yellow hue paired with its deep brown center keeps its color grounded.
Amethyst Calla Lilies
Purple calla lilies offer a dark and moody tone to fall bouquets and Thanksgiving centerpieces. Their cool jewel tone speaks to the violet variety of quartz, also known as amethyst. Sometimes referred to as “black,” depending on the bloom, purple calla lilies are ideal for “spooky season.”
Ruby Asiatic Lilies
Red Asiatic lilies can have a luxurious and prominent black undertone, reflecting the vibrant elegance of red ruby gemstones. Lilies are always a dazzling addition to autumn arrangements as their large petals and anthers draw your attention to their undeniable romantic beauty.
Loved and admired for all occasions year-round, eucalyptus is especially alluring as its cool, emerald, green hue enlivens and rejuvenates autumn floral arrangements. Whether silver dollar eucalyptus, seeded eucalyptus, or “baby blue” eucalyptus, it is the perfect accent to vivid jewel-toned blooms.
Last but surely not least is bronze chrysanthemums paying homage to gorgeous amber. Mums themselves are shining stars and icons of the autumn season, and with brown undertones adding depth and dimension to the yellow and orange hues, they are a stunner on the jewel-tone spectrum.
It’s no secret why autumn is a favorite season for many. While Mother Nature paints our world with amber and gold, the crisp aromas of leaves, apples, and sweet pumpkin spice fill the air, and we get to feel warm and cozy under soft blankets. Here at George’s Flowers, we celebrate this season of transition in the best way – with fantastic fall flowers that offer regal jewel tones and create astounding autumn arrangements for centerpieces, home decor, and even gifts for holiday dinner hosts.
