Floral Halloween Decorations 2020
Dark & Moody
Vivid & Bright
Other popular colours for this year are jewel tones. Vivid and bright flowers make a statement and bring playfulness to your interiors. It is where the warm tones of fall come into play. An arrangement with orange gerberas, bronze mums, red daisies, complemented by yellow oak leaves makes a suitable Halloween floral arrangement. Other varieties to combine are red spray roses, orange and burgundy chrysanthemums, and yellow sunflowers for a striking centrepiece.
Speaking of sunflowers, you can make this variety Halloween-appropriate by looking for rich “Prado Red,” “Moulin Rouge,” and “Red Sun.”
Which varieties to use?
Add Ranunculus into your floral vocabulary and it might just be your next favourite! This flower was first introduced in 2017 and remains to be a popular choice for wedding arrangements. It has tissue-like petals which makes it a top choice for dreamy floral designs.
Butterfly Ranunculus comes in all the bright colours of fall such as yellow, orange, and red. For a Halloween-inspired decor, keep a lookout for the variety called Theseus.
Different types of flowers
Dried Flowers and Grasses
Since last year, dried flowers and grasses have gained attraction. Social media is to blame for this. Dried pods of flowers are ideal for those who do not want to hassle themselves with fresh flowers.
The great thing about dried flowers is the availability of the different varieties. Whether you are after Helichrysum, Spray Roses, Lavender or Statice, you can find these at any flower shop. Dried Pampas grass is also having a moment. The cream-coloured grass makes for fashionable fall decor.
If you want to DIY your Halloween flowers, you can make dead flowers at home. Instead of drying them, Peter Krask, the floral designer for NBC’s Today Show, advises to ‘bake’ the flowers. You can read about it here.
The Power of Plants
Young people have now shown interest in decorating their homes with greenery. Interior design trends and social media gave rise to the increasing demand for indoor plants. If you wish to bring your flowers forward and make your home a little greener, you can add some ‘spook-tacular’ plants as decorations.
Elephant ear plants are a bit generic. Have them in black and things get more interesting. Another black plant to have is the black heart vine.
For easy-to-care houseplants, choose from the spider plant and air plants. The spider plant looks like spiders springing from the plant while Tillandsias or air plants have a ghostly pale appearance and wide curling leaves. Air plants provide more flexibility when it comes to incorporating it with your Halloween decor as it does not require soil.
