How to Arrange an Autumn Silk Flower Bouquet

As the leaves start to change and the air turns crisp, it's time to bring the beauty of autumn into your home with silk flowers. Whether you want to create a cozy atmosphere or add a touch of elegance, there are many ways to incorporate silk flowers into your autumn decor. In this blog post, we'll explain the do's and don'ts of arranging a silk autumn bouquet.

When arranging a silk flower bouquet, it's important to consider two key factors: color and form.

Autumn Colors

To create a cohesive and stylish autumn silk flower bouquet, incorporate the autumn color palette, which includes:

  • Warm and earthy tones: Think shades of brown, orange, and yellow, as well as deep reds and burgundies. These colors evoke the feeling of autumn leaves and create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. For example, we used orange wild gerbera, dahlia, and phylisas, as well as burgundy ranunculus, loosestrife, and fountain grass.
  • Jewel tones: Rich shades of emerald green, sapphire blue, and amethyst purple add a touch of glamour and sophistication to your fall decor. For example, we used green eucalyptus.
  • Muted and neutral tones: Creams, beiges, and soft browns create a calming and serene atmosphere, perfect for a cozy night in. For example, we used willow branches.

Autumn Forms

Mixing different forms is key to arranging a dynamic and interesting bouquet. Autumn is a great season to work with forms, such as:

  • Large showy blooms: we used dahlias and physalis serve as focal points in the FALL bouquet.
  • Delicate blooms: we used gerberas and ranunculus for a softer touch.
  • Spiky flowers: we incorporated loosestrife, fountain grass and eucalytpus for added texture.
  • Tall branches: we used willow branches for added height and drama.

Combining Color and Form

Start with the biggest blooms as focal points and arrange smaller flowers around them.

Mix and match the different forms mentioned above to create a captivating contrast.

Only add greenery at the end, if necessary. This is different from fresh flower arranging, where you usually start with the greenery.

Final Touches

Once you have the desired color and form arrangement, evaluate the silk flower bouquet from all sides and make any necessary adjustments. When arranging silk flowers, shape the petals and leaves as desired. Most silk flowers have wire in the edges of the petals, stems, and leaves. Spread out the branches and blossoms, then gently shape the wired parts with your thumb and first two fingers. Avoid creating harsh angles or sharp curves, as they can make the flowers look unnatural.
