It’s October, and Halloween’s just around the corner! Lots of people are busy getting ready for Halloween by stocking up on candy, decorating their front doors for trick-or-treaters, picking out costumes. Other Halloween enthusiasts are already in the heart of the celebration, watching scary movies, carving pumpkins, snacking on candy corn, and attending costume parties. At Norton’s Florist, our floral designers have been busy coming up with fun, festive, and sweet Halloween floral arrangements and gifts to spread the spirit of the season throughout Birmingham.
Our Favorite Festive Flowers for Halloween
Halloween’s all about celebrating the things that go bump in the night. For this holiday, we recommend orange gerbera daisies and sunflowers because they really bring out the fall feelings. We also like to use fun, festive colors in our arrangements for Halloween. These include Halloween classics like orange, black, purple, and green. Arrangements featuring autumn colors are also great for celebrating Halloween all October long!
Bright Gerbera Daisies
We love to incorporate gerbera daisies in bright pumpkin-orange, sunny yellow, or deep red into our Halloween arrangements. They’re bright and cheerful, perfect for an arrangement designed to spread the Halloween spirit. Our Black Magic bouquet contrasts a midnight black cube vase with yellow gerberas, sunny lilies, and roses. Go on a treasure hunt, looking through this bouquet to find sweet surprises and a few mini jack-o-lanterns.
Black Magic Bouquet
Spider chrysanthemums are one of the most popular floral choices for Halloween arrangements. They’re available in almost every color of the rainbow, and they feature long, spidery petals that add dynamic texture to a festive bouquet. Our spooky Halloweentown bouquet features miniature glittering pumpkins and makes perfect use of chrysanthemums alongside multicolored lilies, red gerberas, purple statice, and eucalyptus.
Enchanting or Edible Accents
When added to a Halloween arrangement, all the fun things we associate with the holiday, make the floral arrangements even more fun! We love to pop a few glittery pumpkins, spiders, bats, or witch hats into a bouquet to up the spooky factor. Since candy’s a huge part of celebrating Halloween, it also makes a great addition to a festive floral design. Our Trick-or-Treat Basket, for example, includes a beautiful arrangement of autumn-colored flowers, bedecked with candy bars, spiderwebs, and jack-o-lanterns! This arrangement makes the perfect gift for anyone who loves (or once loved) trick-or-treating!
Spread the Fall Feeling with Flowers and Gifts for Halloween
Although Halloween’s just one day, we recommend celebrating the spirit of the season all month long. Adorn your entryway with cheerful potted mums and a floral wreath, and spookify the indoors with Halloween floral accents and autumn harvest centerpieces. Send a candy-filled Halloween gift basket to your favorite trick-or-treater and celebrate October birthdays and anniversaries with festive Halloween floral arrangements.
Whether you have an October occasion or simply love that fall feeling, floral arrangements and unique Halloween gifts can help you celebrate! Our florists at Norton’s Florist can help you select the perfect Halloween flowers and gifts for all your favorite ghosts, goblins, and ghouls this season.
