Before the more serious honor, reflection, and remembrance of All Saints Day and All Souls Day, Halloween’s a time for celebrating life with revelry and light-hearted fun. It’s a time for celebrating the harvest, eating sweet treats, playing games, wearing costumes, playing make-believe, telling scary stories, and trick-or-treating. At Beneva Flowers in Sarasota, we celebrate Halloween the best way we know-how, with flowers, of course!
Our Favorite Flowers and Themes for Halloween Floral Arrangements
On a day that’s all about the things that go bump in the night (mummies, vampires, jack-o-lanterns, Frankenstein, ghosts, cats, owls, and witches), black is the perfect color for decorating. For a truly terrifying Halloween floral design, we recommend adding as much black as you can. Choose black roses, bats, and midnight baubles for a chilling effect.
Orange is the official color of Halloween, and there’s no shortage of orange blooms to choose from to wish a special someone happy Halloween in October. In flowers, orange traditionally represents excitement, and there’s no better word to describe the energy on All Hallow’s Eve. Orange flowers are naturally cheerful, especially gerbera daises, but in our It’s Bat Simple Halloween arrangement, bright-orange gerbera daisies take on a more sinister role. Arranged to mimic a moonscape on a Halloween night, this arrangement features absconding bats, twisting willow branches, fall foliage, and a clutch of blooms in Halloween colors. Arranged in a container as black as the night, this Halloween design is one of the best ways to spread the spirit of the season!
Normally, purple flowers represent success and admiration, but on Halloween, the color purple only points to one thing: witches. There’s no better way to celebrate this favorite Halloween character than with the Witches Brew floral arrangement. Splashed with hints of silver, this bewitching floral design features purple, green, and orange flowers with sparkling witch hats and matching glittery baubles. Send it to someone who’s cast their spell on you!
There’s no shortage of eerie embellishments that can be added to an enchanting arrangement of Halloween flowers. Some of our favorites include flower picks that feature glittery creatures, such as the sparkling ghosts in our popular Black and Boo arrangement. You can find all sorts of decorations to add to a Halloween arrangement: spiders, mummies, pumpkins, bats, witches, haunted houses, and more! We also love to fill out bouquets with festive ribbons in complementary colors and wacky Halloween prints.
