Planning a Fall Get Together? The Best Fall Colors for Décor and Flowers

Are you planning a fun fall get together?  If so, you’ll definitely want to decorate a little bit, and you’ll want to get a lovely fall flower centerpiece for your table.  So what colors and flowers do you go with?  Obviously, since it’s the fall, you’ll want some gorgeous seasonal colors that will complement the beautiful falling leaves and the crisp weather.

When it comes to colors, dark reds, oranges, and yellows are the standard colors of fall.  You’ll find napkins, paper plates, and candles in these colors, and those are all perfect for a fall get together.  You might already have a fall colored table runner and placemats to decorate your table with, but if you don’t, you’ll find some great choices in many department stores.

You can also use other dark colors for your fall decorations.  A dark purple, for example, looks nice combined with red and even some golden yellows.  Dark green and brown are also good options, especially if you’re going with a fall tree kind of color scheme.

When it comes to fall flowers, there are a number of great options.  Late blooming flowers are often the best.  Fall Aster is a good option if you want some brighter colors to go with your darker fall shades, although they may not match perfectly.  If you want something that will go with the reds, browns, and yellows of fall, look at Copper Canyon Daisy, Marigold, Mountain Sage, and Goldenrod.  For bright colors, some Lilies, Chrysanthemums, and Caryopteris are nice.  Orange and yellow roses are also a nice fit.
