How to Choose the Perfect Jewel-Toned Blooms for Fall Arrangements

The autumn months are bursting with some of the most glorious color schemes and tones that paint our world with a miraculous warmth. Many of the colors we see during the fall season include reds, yellows, oranges, and browns; the usual suspects that Mother Nature uses to color our world this time of year. As the leaves transition out of their summertime green and the neon bathing suits are swapped for neutral sweaters, we find comfort in these warm and rich hues. Fall flowers enter our homes and offices with the same purpose of providing warmth, comfort, and rich jewel tones that give us a boost of energy and inspiration. Here at WildFlower, we are honoring these jewel-toned blooms and exploring their beauty, regalness, luxury, warmth, popularity, and more.

What Are Jewel-Toned Flowers?

Flowers that are considered “jewel-toned” offer a rich, vibrant, and regal nature to their appearance. Jewel tones themselves are defined as hues that mirror precious gems, like rubies, emeralds, sapphires, amethyst, etc. You may think of blooms like red Asiatic lilies, yellow sunflowers, green eucalyptus, orange dahlias, bronze chrysanthemums, blue iris, and purple calla lilies. Jewel tones offer drama, moodiness, and decadence, typically grounded with a hint of black to create that deep, bold, rich hue.

Why Jewel Tones are Perfect for Fall Centerpieces

These gem-inspired colors are warm and rich, mimicking the natural tones of Mother Nature in autumn, as well as offering that cozy feeling of sitting near a crackling fireplace with a soft blanket and hot beverage. Deep yet colorful shades of sapphire, ruby, emerald, amethyst, gold, and more, are ideal for Thanksgiving centerpieces or fall floral arrangements to display around your home. Jewel-toned flowers offer the perfect balance of color, texture, and excitement without being too bright, overwhelming, or clashing with other fall decor.

Where Else Can You Display Jewel-Toned Blooms

In addition to adding a regal “pop” of color to your Thanksgiving table, jewel-tone flowers and arrangements also have their rightful place in many other areas of your home. A striking jewel-toned floral arrangement on the coffee table in your living room will make the space look like a million bucks. A lovely collection of rich red, purple, orange, and green blooms is a fantastic addition to your home office or desk to provide deep inspiration.

Warm & Cool Jewel Tones

While we explore the majestic wonder of jewel tones, we would be doing ourselves an injustice if we didn’t dive into complementary jewel tones. Do you enjoy the look of contrasting hues in your floral arrangements, or do you gravitate towards either warm or cool tones? Cool jewel tones include emerald, sapphire, and amethyst, while ruby, citrine, and topaz are considered warm jewel tones. When searching for complementary jewel-tone flowers, consider blue iris and orange dahlias, green eucalyptus and red roses, purple calla lilies, and yellow sunflowers.
