Three Simple Ideas to create a Halloween themed floral arrangement
Save the candy for the kids and prepare to amaze your friends (especially the ones who are obsessed with this holiday) by giving them a Halloween themed bouquet.
We all love this holiday, mainly because we get to fill our houses (both inside and outside) with pumpkins and scary decorations. But these simple creations can be a fun gift to your friends for a halloween dinner party.
We’ve narrowed it down to these ingredients that you can mix and match. If combined properly, you’ll have a “spook-tacular” Halloween creation.
What do I need?
Orange roses, purple carnations and cushion poms, blue (or purple) asters.
You’ll also need a purple wrapping paper as well as orange, black or red ribbons.
For the base, use black or purple vases and any amount of pumpkins you’d like.
Some Glitter Spray (you can get on ebay or even superdrug).
Purple and orange flowers are ideal for any autumn-themed decoration and these combinations look great in any Halloween arrangement. You can use orange roses and lilies as well as purple cushion poms, then add dark-coloured leaves on top for a more dramatic effect. Best displayed inside a purple or see-through black vase.
The Pumpkin King
The Addams Vase
Place inside a black or purple vase the following: blue asters, black roses (you can add a red one somewhere as well), and long thin branches (of similar colour) for a dramatic effect.
We suggest you do at least three of these vases, each one with a different touch. You can add spray glitter paint to one of them and add an orange rose (instead of red) into another. Contrasting the black and blue arrangements with an orange or red rose is definitely an eye catcher!
Black Bouquet Blue..
This is a fun idea for a gift, for someone who loves flowers. Take your roses and Carnations (and maybe add black roses), tie them together with a string. Then place them in the wrapping paper as tightly as you can in the bottom, and a bit wider on the top (similar to a vampire’s costume in fairytales). Then spray the glitter paint gently holding it on top of the arrangement (min 30 cm) so that only the top gets sprayed. We suggest silver, purple and red colours.
