Why fall is the best season…. Crisp, fresh cool air, spectacular colors, fires in the fireplace, pumpkin everything, sweaters, and incredibly awesome fall flowers such as dahlias, mums, celosia, goldenrods, and more. Autumnal florals have deep, rich colors, a great variety of textures, and are a welcome sight that let us know us change is coming. And, it’s a welcome change – one from the hot and humid days of summer to the beautiful weather of fall with perfect days and chilly nights. Here at Peoples Flowers, we love everything about fall and welcome it with open arms. From carving pumpkins to cooking turkeys, we’ve got fall covered with our fall-related blogs below. Jump into the year’s best season and get your fall on!
