As fall approaches, we can finally inject a little drama into our decor. One of the best ways to do that is to turn to the jewel-tone palette, a seasonal favorite. We here at City Line Florist love the dimension, depth, and mystery of gemstone colors, whether it’s ruby red, crimson, violet, blue, or emerald green. Luckily, a whole range of flowers is available in these hues, which will not only enliven your space but give it a sense of gravitas, too. If you aren’t ready to invest in full-on fabric and linen decor in these colors, flowers can be a great way to get the same effect without breaking the bank.
A Cozy Rainbow of Jewel-Toned Blooms
Cool blue like sapphire, blue thistle is a common accent to spot in sensational fall arrangements. While their jewel-toned hue is enough to lure you in, their unique shape and spikey petals add a level of excitement, regality, and unexpectedness when nestled among soft, round, fluffy blooms.
One of the showstoppers of autumn flowers, the orange dahlia, is large, bold, and multidimensional, with many layers of quirky petals. Their warm, jewel-tone orange hue screams fall while mirroring the gemstone citrine and symbolizing elegance and positivity.
Golden yellow sunflowers are another warm jewel-tone bloom that many people simply adore. Their brilliance lights up any room or arrangement, while the dark undertone of a sunflower’s iconic yellow hue paired with its deep brown center keeps its color grounded.
Amethyst Calla Lilies
Purple calla lilies offer a dark and moody tone to fall bouquets and Thanksgiving centerpieces. Their cool jewel tone speaks to the violet variety of quartz, also known as amethyst. Sometimes referred to as “black,” depending on the bloom, purple calla lilies are ideal for “spooky season.”
Ruby Asiatic Lilies
Red Asiatic lilies can have a luxurious and prominent black undertone, reflecting the vibrant elegance of red ruby gemstones. Lilies are always a dazzling addition to autumn arrangements as their large petals and anthers draw your attention to their undeniable romantic beauty.
Loved and admired for all occasions year-round, eucalyptus is especially alluring as its cool, emerald, green hue enlivens and rejuvenates autumn floral arrangements. Whether silver dollar eucalyptus, seeded eucalyptus, or “baby blue” eucalyptus, it is the perfect accent to vivid jewel-toned blooms.
Last but surely not least is bronze chrysanthemums paying homage to gorgeous amber. Mums themselves are shining stars and icons of the autumn season, and with brown undertones adding depth and dimension to the yellow and orange hues, they are a stunner on the jewel-tone spectrum.
Consider what our Autumn Calico Deluxe might do for your dining table or living room area. Vibrant orchids and roses are softened just a little by a mess of pale green hydrangea, which peeks out from the bottom of the design. The contrast between violet and orange is electrifying here, a powerful little piece to set the tone for fall in your space.
While you’re busy embracing those traditional harvest hues, don’t forget to spare a spot for those gorgeous, vivid jewel-toned colors. For help choosing the best autumn arrangement, browse the fall collection here at City Line Florist. They’ll draw the eye every time.
