Fall is a great time of year! It’s still warm enough to enjoy being outdoors and the landscape around us displays amazing colors that fill us with awe and reverence. Plus, there are harvest festivals, apple picking, trick-or-treating, and pumpkin-spiced everything. Besides the pleasant weather, autumn brings out colorful rich hues that are comforting and enchanting.
Fall colors are so popular that the Pantone Color Institute puts out a list each year of trending colors for fall. The tones they selected for 2021 are a charmingly named group of lights and darks that evoke feelings of calm and excitement. You are sure to find these and plenty more gorgeous autumn hues in our fall floral arrangements. At WildFlower, we love showcasing the brilliant oranges, yellows, reds, and purples that take center stage during this time of year.

Fall Color Trends in Flowers
This year Pantone highlights a bold green color named “leprechaun” and a more muted “olive branch” green. Bringing out the colors of nature, these tones have an uplifting and fresh vibe. Find similar green hues in flowers such as orchids and hydrangea and greenery like succulents, fern, and eucalyptus leaves.
Different shades of blue are popular this fall. Pantone’s Mykonos Blue, Rhodonite, and Spring Lake are beautiful blue hues we want in our home! Look for this color in florals such as delphinium, cornflower, hydrangea, hyacinth, iris, and forget-me-nots.
Yellow is a pretty standard color for fall and Pantone’s “illuminating yellow” is trending fall hue and one of the top colors of 2021. An uplifting, joyful color, celebrate the lively yellows with an arrangement that has yellow roses, yellow mums, sunflowers, yellow daisies, gladiolus, or billy balls.
The color pink is usually associated with spring and summer, but Pantone lists it as an interesting fall choice as well. Their “fuchsia fedora” and “pale rosette” add flirty and graceful details into the darker fall shades. Follow the trend by adding pink blooms to your arrangements like roses, alstroemeria, carnations, daisies, pink calla lilies, and gladiolus.
Rich reds are a favorite fall color every year, and 2021 is no exception. Pantone’s “fire whirl” is a warm, yellow-based red that will add a distinctively fall touch to your home. Find similar red shades in a bouquet of red roses, carnations, dahlias, and mums.
Pantone’s “coconut cream” and “soybean” off-white tones bring lightness and levity to autumn fashion and home decor. Pairing the rich, saturated shades of oranges, reds, and yellows with creamy whites creates a beautiful and harmonious homage to fall. White hydrangea, white roses, white daisies, white carnations, white orchids, white calla lilies, and white anemone are all wonderful options.
Fall flower arrangements take on a magical quality because the tones and hues of fall flowers are richer, deeper, more mysterious, yet inviting and warm. Bring a bit of fall magic into your home with a gorgeous bouquet of fresh fall blooms. Natural and living decor is a great way to reinvigorate and refresh your home.
