It’s October, and Halloween’s just around the corner. Some people are busy getting ready for the spookiest day of the year, stocking up on sweets, picking out costumes, and decorating the front door for trick-or-treaters. Others have already begun celebrating the season with costume parties, scary movie marathons, candy corn, and pumpkin carving. At Peoples Flower Shops, our florists have been busy designing fun, festive floral arrangements and gift baskets to help spread the spirit of Halloween around Albuquerque.
Our Favorite Flowers for Halloween Floral Designs
One of the most popular types of flowers for Halloween is the Gerbera daisy in bright colors. Orange Gerberas are especially perfect, as they’re almost the same color as pumpkins. These vibrant flowers make any arrangement pop with the perfect amount of excitement for Halloween. One of our favorite arrangements featuring orange Gerberas is the Pretty Pumpkin Bouquet. In addition to seasonally colored Gerberas, this arrangement features a variety of autumn blooms, like yellow mums and more! Plus, it’s all perfectly arranged in a ceramic keepsake pumpkin container (candy jar), complete with pumpkin stem lid. You or your recipient can enjoy the pretty pumpkin for many harvest seasons to come!
Another Halloween favorite, chrysanthemums are cheerful and versatile. They bloom in nearly every color of the rainbow, so they’re a perfect option to fill out any missing colors in a Halloween design. We especially love using the spindly spider variety of chrysanthemums in Halloween bouquets. Potted varieties create a warm, welcoming entryway and are in-season this time of year. So, they’ll do well outside, allowing you to enjoy them throughout fall.
Bright orange or rust orange Asiatic lilies are a popular choice in a variety of Halloween and harvest-themed bouquets. They’re beautifully large blooms add big pops of star-shaped color. We especially love to pair them with cottage-red carnations sunset roses in an autumn bouquet or with purple Matsumoto flowers and green chrysanthemums in a witchy design.
Roses in a variety of colors add beauty and elegance to any Halloween arrangement. Black roses adorned with black lace create a perfectly macabre bouquet or mixed with orange blooms a classic Halloween treat. We also love roses in yellow, orange, and sunset colors for both Halloween and harvest arrangements.

Halloween’s just one day, but the spookiest season of the year lasts throughout October. We recommend decorating your house first. Place potted mums and a floral wreath at the front. Then select a few Halloween floral accents and a stunning fall centerpiece for your dining table. You can spread the Halloween spirit by gifting a basket full of candy to your favorite trick-or-treater or sending Halloween flowers to friends or family members with October birthdays and anniversaries.
