So, here we are in the final days of October, also known as Halloween Week also known as the day everyone asks “What are you going to be for Halloween?” or “Are you going to a party?” week. For a florist, this is the day we ask ourselves: How can we make beautiful flowers look scary? This holiday allows us to stretch our imagination and come up with some of the coolest creations you could ever come up with gorgeous flowers. With the help of googly eyes, tiny pumpkins, curly willows and a can of black flower paint we can turn an unassuming innocent pretty arrangement into a halloween masterpiece.

You may be decorating your home with floating ghosts, spider webs, dangling skeletons and scary faced lanterns for your halloween party. But who said that you can’t class it up with a few flowers centerpieces. It’s true that halloween parties are not the kind of parties you plan to have flowers, and we are not saying you should, but there are ways to make your party different than the rest while maintaining the fun.  Imagine how the Addams Family would throw a dinner party. We all know that they are the epitome of class (in a spooky way). What would their decore look like? How would they set their table? What would their centerpieces look like?

This the time to have fun with your imagination and step away from the “normal” of life, so why should you limit yourself to what is the “normal” for halloween parties?

So go for it, get creative, think outside of the box, call your florist! We’re armed with all kinds of fun goodies to add the BOO! in some BOOtiful flowers and the Spook in some Spooktacular arrangements.

 

 

Happy Halloween Y’all! Mwahahahaha!

 

Halloween Party Ideas

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is coming up, and if you don’t have any party ideas, well, you still have a bit of time.  In fact, sometimes last minute Halloween party ideas are the best!  Here are a few different things you could do this Halloween.

If you have kids or will be hosting a Halloween party for kids, you can always create a mini-haunted house in your home.  It doesn’t have to be incredibly scary.  In fact, you probably don’t want to make it that scary.  One thing you can do is blindfold kids and put their hands in different items—spaghetti becomes worms, boiled eggs can be eyeballs, etc. 

Have a treasure hunt or a scavenger hunt.  Both can be fun.  Creating a treasure hunt gives your friends or kids the chance to work together, while a scavenger hunt pits teams against each other. 

For adult parties, create a creepy Halloween bar.  Your mad scientist might brew up some pumpkin martinis, witch’s brew, and other scary drinks.  A little food coloring, some neat glasses, and some fun decorations can really add to the overall effect.

Another idea is to have a theme party.  Instead of having everyone come in whatever costume they want, send out invitations listing your theme.  Maybe you want everyone to come as a historical figure, their favorite television character, or a traditional Halloween monster. 

Host a murder mystery party.  You can buy murder mystery kits from a number of different stores.  Generally, these murder mysteries are done over dinner, but they don’t have to be.  Most require between six and eight players, although there are some that accommodate a dozen.

If you need great flowers to use in your Halloween party decorations, there’s still time.  MyFlorist has a number of great boo-quets available!

Adding Halloween flowers to go with the rest of your holiday décor adds a fun touch to your home. Flowers come in just the right colors to reflect the holiday of Halloween.  Orange roses and asiatic lilies, gold gerberas, black leaves, and even acid greens create just the color scheme you want.  Add a black pillar candle to make the perfect centerpiece.  You may also add twigs, sticks, and other ‘dead’ types of filler to make your flower arrangements for Halloween look especially creepy!

MyFlorist has live Halloween flowers and arrangements that you can buy online to have delivered to your home or to someone else if you want to send a gift.  We love fresh cut flowers because we can usually match any color scheme you may need.  Just give us a call and we’ll be happy to create a one-of-a-kind customized arrangement to complement your style.

Doing it yourself or with your children may be an enjoyable Halloween activity.  You can get flowers and vases to make Halloween flower arrangements with them. Extras like ghosts, black cats, witches’ brooms and other fun Halloween items will add just the right touch to their own arrangements.  

Flowers are always a fun and interesting addition to any Halloween celebration!
