Florals get a lot of love in the springtime–and we’ve all seen (and maybe even posted) a beautiful bush of summer hydrangeas.

But in the fall and winter, it often feels like florals get cast aside in favor of other festive trimmings, and there’s no need for that to be the case. Read on for a few of our favorite seasonal florals, alongside tips for how to style them to perfection.

1. See what’s in season

First and foremost, we need to set the record straight. There are tons of flowers in season in the fall. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Mums (chrysanthemums)
  • Marigolds
  • Dahlias
  • Sunflowers
  • Scabiosa (also known as “pincushions”)
  • Anemones
  • Cosmos
  • Lisianthus
  • Roses

2. Pick some seasonal complements

Your next step depends on when in the fall you’re decorating. Here’s our month-by month guide:

Late September

  • Take advantage of late summer’s last rays and incorporate wheat and pampas grass into any of your fall floral arrangements–they’ll juxtapose beautifully against any bloom, but sunflowers are a particularly perfect way to signal the seasonal transition.


  • Fall means foliage, and October is indubitably when trees are at their peak. Lean into nature’s saturated palette by creating a bouquet that borrows from nature’s display. First, grab a central floral–we love leaning into the month’s ubiquitous orange and opting for marigolds–and then dress it up with gorgeous, sparse branches–we love yellow aspens.


  • When it comes to November, we stick to a tablescape trick as old as time: small, decorative gourds and squashes. They’re classic because they work—they’re small enough that they’re not intrusive, colorful without overpowering your table’s aesthetic, and are as clear a nod as any that the season of giving and gratitude is upon us. Play up the Cucurbita with florals in a fall palette–Emma Hampton of Roobarb Studio recommends cream, burgundy, burnt orange, and a hint of blush.


  • Say goodbye to red and green, and hello to our favorite festive arrangement: one that puts white anemones at its center. We love their snowy vibes on their own in a bud vase, but when coupled with a few sprigs of fir, you’ve got yourself a subtle and sophisticated nod to the festive season.

3. Style accordingly

We have one rule for gifting a fall floral bouquet–also borrowed from Roobarb florist Emma Hampton (as many of our floral tips are): butcher paper. Fall palettes are especially saturated, and offsetting via a natural vessel is key. If you’re arranging in your own home, not gifting, go for a vase that feels earthy and neutral too.
