Halloween Flowers

October is all about Halloween! We can’t wait, and in anticipation of this quickly-approaching holiday, why not begin decorating with Halloween flowers? Using floral centerpieces and bouquets to decorate for Halloween is a wonderful way to showcase your creative talents and add a natural touch to your home

Use autumn colors and seasonal fall flowers for your home this month! And don’t forget to add spooky accents. Some of the best Halloween flowers are seasonal, in colors of black, orange, yellow, dark red and dark purple.

 

The sunflower is one of our favorite October flowers! They do an excellent job at brightening up the darkest of spaces; they’re like little bits of sunshine in the home. The French word for sunflower is tournesol, which literally means "turn with the sun", and sunflowers do just that. They capture all the sunrays so you can have them home when the sun isn’t around as much! Ideal for taking shelter from the fall chills.






Chrysanthemums are in season in the garden and they are also always available at florists. They come in all of these Halloween colors naturally except for black.




The dahlia is another fall flower that is available in Halloween colors. The perfect seasonal bloom to center a bouquet.




Roses and carnations are classic favorites always available at the florist and they can be dyed in any color you like, even black.

We also have a list of some naturally spooky and bizarre flowers that any Halloween lover will appreciate.

Some of the best October flowers are created by nature and need no further help to be bizarre or spooky. Just look at the bat flower: this nearly-black flower features "wings" like bat wings and long whiskers that make it look like something from an alien planet. Sometimes you can find these plants around Halloween.



Then there is the corpse-scented dark red and black voodoo lily that looks equally strange. The eyeball plant is an annual with flowers that look like yellow and orange eyeballs; it also numbs the mouth in case you have some mad, evil dentists running around your party.

I have to mention carnivorous plants like the Venus fly trap, nepenthes, and sarracenias; they may not be flowers, but their spook factor is high. Tuck them amidst some red cockscomb, which resembles a brain, or within some weird octopus orchids or bat-faced cup head. For a more light-hearted flower, choose candy corn vine; the flowers look just like the candy.

Father's Day: Red and White Roses



With Father’s Day quickly approaching on Sunday, June 17th we can’t forget that flowers are a great option to show Dad our appreciation. Did you know that the official flowers for this day are both the red and white rose?


A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington first initiated Father’s Day in 1909 to celebrate her own father, William Smart. Sonora decided to set Father’s Day in June because that was her father’s birth month. Years later, Calvin Coolidge conveyed his support to make Father’s Day a national holiday. In 1972, the tradition of celebrating Father’s Day every third Sunday of June was established, thanks to Richard Nixon. Father’s Day isn’t only acknowledged in the United States; it is often celebrated in other countries, such as Asia and Canada. Other countries recognize Father’s Day during different times of the year. Belgium and Spain celebrate in March, New Zealand in September and Sweden in November.


Red roses are often worn to honor your father if he is still alive and white roses are worn if your father has passed away. While wearing either rose is a great way to recognize Dad, there are also other ways to incorporate roses while gift-giving for Father’s Day.




Adding a single rose to your father’s gift wrapping would be a simple but meaningful way to make use of roses for this particular holiday. Another way to to show your dad appreciation with roses is to add some petals to breakfast. If you want to go down a home-cooked breakfast route, rose petals are actually edible and would be the perfect decoration to have in his pancakes or morning coffee cake. If your dad is into art why not get him a piece with roses in it? It would be great decor for his office or somewhere around the house.


A final option is simply giving your dad some roses. It doesn’t have to be a full bouquet, but giving your dad flowers would be a choice that he could appreciate, even if it’s not as common as giving your mom flowers for Mother’s Day.


Red and white roses are popular for many occasions. Red roses can represent anything from love to passion. White roses can represent anything from respect to sympathy. Either way, why not include flowers as a way to show your dad that you appreciate him?

Poppies and Memorial Day


The poppy is more than just an annual, biennial, or part time perennial. The red poppy plays a significant role for both Remembrance Day and Memorial Day. The history behind the meaning of the red poppy is rich and dates back to World War I.


While the key importance is often drawn to remembering those who have fought and died during World War I, it is also a time to recognize not only those who fought, but also those who supported the fallen soldiers during such a destructive time.


During World War l, a soldier by the name of John McCrae was influenced by how tenacious the red poppies of Western Europe were. Because of his inspiration, John wrote the recognized poem, ‘In Flanders Fields’. John’s poem reflected that, despite the devastation around him caused by the war, these red poppies could still survive.




Poppies are now symbolically worn by many, especially in the UK, Scotland and Canada. This tradition started thanks to a woman named Moina Michael. John’s poem inspired Moina to create silk red poppies for others to wear in remembrance of fallen soldiers.


Currently, wearing the red poppy is a great way to show appreciation to those who serve in the military, veterans and all family members. This year there is a poppy wall in the National Mall of Washington D.C. to show appreciation and respect during this Memorial Day weekend. This wall is a memorial that is filled with 645,000 synthetic poppy flowers. The exact number of flowers is suppose to represent every single fallen American during the time of World War l. These flowers that were donated by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion are a great reminder for those in the United States, where red poppies aren’t shown as much compared to the U.K., Scotland or Canada.


So when celebrating Memorial Day today, remember that if you see a red poppy, the history behind it is an abundant and respectable one.

But have you ever wondered how this distinctive plant became so closely connected with the Christmas season?

I know you won't be a bit surprised when I say that plants make wonderful gifts for friends and family. Houseplants give off oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, which improves air quality. Plus, plants add color and life to any room. Best of all, the recipient of your gift gets to watch it grow and change through the years. This week, I've collected some ideas for giving the gift of green this year.

The History Behind The Thanksgiving Cornucopia

Photo via http://ow.ly/WUyp305YIQw

A cornucopia is a common sight on many Thanksgiving dinner tables throughout America. At this time of the year, you're likely to see wicker cornucopias of all sizes filled to overflowing with apples, grapes, pears, leaves, and even small pumpkins. Some people get really creative filling their cornucopias with flowers, candy, or colorful veggies! I have a homemade cornucopia that I put on my Thanksgiving table every year. It's made of raffia, and I love filling it with sedums, yellow mums, and other fall blooms. Also, I've found that a small cornucopia filled with colorful blooms makes an appealing gift for the host of a holiday party. Have you ever wondered why cornucopias are so closely connected with the Thanksgiving holiday? If you have, this week's post is just for you. Enjoy!

How To Choose The Best Christmas Tree To Rock Around

Photo via http://ow.ly/VZ7ls

One of my favorite things to do at this time of year is drive out to a local tree farm with friends and choose my Christmas tree. I love seeing all of the families walking through the fields to find a lovely tree for their home. As a kid, my family always chose a Scotch pine. I've continued that tradition, and I always seem to find one that fits perfectly into my living room. This week, I thought I'd take a look at the different types of Christmas trees as well as how to care for them. Enjoy!
