The days are shorter and cooler here in Wilmington as the holiday season is upon us. What better kick-off to this bountiful, starkly beautiful time of year than Halloween? While you wait for little ghouls and goblins to clutter your doorstep, spend some time considering how you’ll make your seasonal decor feel fresh and new this year. When you’re placing the pumpkins, gourds and cornucopias, be sure to include some harvest flowers into your designs.
Julia’s Florist has a range of options that will enliven your living space during the long, dark nights and look stellar when illuminated by a crackling fire or flickering candles.
For dining tables, a hardy piece that works for either Halloween or Thanksgiving is in order. Bonus points if stem candles are involved. Make sure the design is long and low so guests can see each other and easily reach items on the table. Our Family Treasures Centerpiece hits all the marks, blending lilies, roses, autumn leaves and mums in rich gold and orange hues with deep greens for an unmistakably autumnal look. Three candles help set the scene, adding a celebratory note to the arrangement, which comes in three sizes for easy customization.
Spend the season enjoying your harvest flowers and decor by picking a piece from Julia’s Florist that you’ll see every time you sit down to dinner.
