Mother Nature never seems to stop surprising us: She offers us those glorious spring and summer months full of blossom and verdant trees, and — if you’re green-thumbed — a garden full of blooms. Now as we all embrace fall and prepare for winter, you might feel that your floral options are more limited: gone are the fluffy peonies and poppies of summer. But fall, with its array of russets, burnt oranges and deep purples, proves there are still plenty of flower options that can create a striking bouquet of cheer in this darker, colder season.
To help you find a little floral inspiration, here are the best of the autumn bunch to create bouquets that will brighten up your home or — if you are an autumn bride-to-be — will add that little something special to your altar-ready ensemble.
Make a statement with these regal purple bold calla lilies. Such striking petals are perfect in a stand-alone bouquet or bring a spot of drama to any room in the house.
This pretty bouquet offers a variation of colors that will liven up any room. The hardy thistles, the symbol of Scotland, are said to provide protection, so consider giving some of these blue beauties to a friend in need.
Berries create a true feel of fall when mixed with this palette of purples. Complemented by the dark green leaves, this bouquet offers your home a touch of the countryside.
The mix of fern with purple and white roses creates a bohemian bloom that is perfect for an autumn bride. Fern symbolizes sincerity towards others, so what better addition to a bridal bouquet: a bride sincere in her love for her groom! This would look equally great in your hallway, as you welcome your friends into your home.
Color co-ordination is the key to a successful bouquet. The blend of orange roses mixed with bright green adds a touch of freshness to this autumnal arrangement.

Lilies signify refined beauty: what more could a home want? Ranked fourth among most popular flowers, they are a welcome addition to this bunch of russet-fall blooms. Just be sure to remove those seed pods as they appear, to avoid any staining!
Majestic purple marries together so wonderfully with these orange lilies and roses. Making the most of fall, this bright bunch offers warmth and passion to these chillier months, as well as a dramatic touch to any home or bride.
