It’s sometimes hard to let go of the summer, with its bright colors and warm, relaxing weather. But the Fall has its charms too, in the gorgeous shades of falling leaves, the golds and oranges that usher in winter holidays. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are just round the corner, but if you’re feeling a bit blue, why not celebrate the season with beautiful flowers?
The official start of Fall is September 21, but nature doesn’t listen to humanity’s “official” dates. Any time the weather is getting colder and your thoughts turn to warm drinks, you can consider it Fall.
There are two approaches you can take when adding fall flowers to your home: Either bring Fall in and welcome it, or stave it off a little longer with some brighter colors.
Golds, yellows, oranges and bronzes are your traditional fall colors, echoing what’s going on indoors. Set against a warming candle or next to a carved pumpkin, fall-themed flowers from daFlores add natural cheer. Just the act of receiving a delightful decoration will make your loved ones smile. Look to orange roses, sunflowers and our special Fall arrangements for this gift.
But if you want to brighten up the cold, then try something different. We still have sunflowers, lilies, fiery tropical flowers and rich red roses. Choose those warm colors to bring light to a table and your family’s faces. Send these flowers just because, or to bless a Fall birthday or other celebration. Just because winter is taking away your garden, doesn’t mean that you should live without flowers.
No matter what you choose, daFlores will look after you from beginning to end. On our website, pick your language from several choices, then select the country where you’ll be sending your beautiful Fall flowers. You can make your selections based on price or occasion. Add extras like vases or chocolates if you wish. Then fill out the details and we’ll arrange for an experienced florist to hand-craft your flowers and deliver them to the door.
No matter what the season, we at daFlores only ever use flowers that were growing fresh that morning. Send flowers for Fall and celebrate life in a beautiful way.
It’s been scientifically proven that flowers brighten up a person’s day. There’s just something about their natural beauty that uplifts and inspires. People who set up flowers in their bedroom or kitchen—the places you’ll visit first thing in the morning—report feeling less stressed out as they go to work or launch into their days.
Then there’s the psychological effect of having somebody send you flowers. It lets you know that they care about you and this can cheer you up no end. People who receive flowers in hospital or when they’re sick get the same benefits: Having something beautiful to look at along with the sense that someone is on their side speeds up healing.
In Minneapolis, there’s a Center for Victims of Torture that has at its heart a beautiful garden. The victims work and meditate in the garden and it gives them a focus and way to heal. The staff, who’ve been listening to horrific stories, go there to contemplate and unwind. Many of them end up being gardeners themselves, digging their unhappiness into the earth which can absorb and neutralize it. The cycle of flowers peeking up from the earth, rising from the dark, is deeply symbolic of the process of healing.
The different colors of flowers also have specific effects. Bright yellow can help you clear your mind and revive from burnout. Restful green helps you to relax, unwind and regain your balance. Blue, also, is a color of relaxation and peace, and can help you find the right words as well as learn.
Aromatherapy is a popular art and the scent of flowers helps too. Lavender is a relaxant and calms you down. Mint is refreshing and clean. Look into essential oils made from flowers to create a certain atmosphere in your home. Even the tiniest amount can make a huge difference to the emotional weather of your space.
