The Autumnal Shift

The days grow shorter, the air colder and the shift in seasons can be seen all around us in Michigan. I know I am among many who call this their favorite time of year.

I had to stop to photograph this view while driving home last week!

In the florist’s world, the change in seasons also brings new materials, both fresh and dried that can be incorporated into our designs. And believe me, we love the chance to play with all of the textures and subtleties in color. Even the foliage is unique at this time of year!

Lush and textural centerpiece for Carrie & Brian’s reception on October 19th.

Lotus pods, cattails, wheat and dried grasses can add that fall touch to an arrangement.

The addition of fruit to a table arrangement just feels right in the autumn.

The long lasting nature of many of the flowers at this time of year is a huge bonus.

I also love when I am able to support a local flower farmer by purchasing their fresh product. I have three resources within the county who stop into the studio throughout the fall season with blooms and dried materials from their own land.

Finally, there is the absolute pleasure of designing for the fall bride. It is just stunning when the theme of the wedding parallels the season and the bounty that is available!
