Hocus Pocus Flower Arrangement

Halloween is a treasured holiday, known for its over-the-top decorations, spine-tingling activities, frightening costumes, and delicious candies and treats.

Cole’s Flowers has highlighted a few of our popular floral arrangements to get you in the Halloween spirit.

Musical Harvest

Eerie, mysterious sounds form the backdrop of the Halloween season, where loud strikes of thunder and long witch cackles give us an easy scare. A fun way to get into the spirit of the season is with a little creepy music that sets the tone for the holiday.

Capture the essence of the spooky sounds of Halloween with the Musical Harvest arrangement, a whimsical collection of magnolia, cattails, sunflower, Asiatic lilies, spray roses, and chrysanthemums that combine to share their own lighthearted tune.

Hocus Pocus

The words “Hocus Pocus” transports us instantly to Halloween, as thoughts fill our minds of fanciful witches flying through the night sky on old broomsticks and mixing up their potions in creaky black cauldrons.

Share your love of all things Halloween with the Hocus Pocus Halloween arrangement, featuring purple carnations and statice, green hypericum and button poms, bunch millet, and mini black pumpkins. This vibrant arrangement puts everyone in the mood for some frighteningly fun ghost stories.

Autumn Vibrance

Halloween season gives us the opportunity to be bold, from daring to walk through terrifying haunted attractions to dressing up as someone or something out of the ordinary. Halloween makes us daring and courageous, letting us come face-to-face with our deepest fears.

Embrace the boldness of Halloween with the Autumn Vibrance lily arrangement, where rust hybrid lilies and red hypericum meet Italian ruscus and leather leaf in a vibrant display of the heart of Halloween.

Pumpkin Gathering

What would Halloween be without pumpkins? From creatively carved jack-o-lanterns to round, orange harvest pumpkins, fall festivity and décor do not come any easier than the inclusion of pumpkins. As soon as pumpkins become available to purchase, the Halloween season has arrived.

The Pumpkin Gathering autumn arrangement offers the pumpkin accents you’re looking for combined with the colors of fall, including small yellow sunflowers and roses, orange gerberas and Asiatic lilies, red mini carnations, and purple statice.

Fresh Florals that are Allergy Friendly

Posted: September 21st, 2018
Fresh Florals

Unfortunately, fresh flowers often prove to be unpleasant to people with pollen allergies. However, all is not lost for the people that get sneezy in the presence of some florals.

Many allergy-friendly floral alternatives offer allergy sufferers a simple, sneeze-free way to enjoy fresh floral arrangements.

Lilies

As a pollen-free blossom, lilies lack the substance that triggers most allergy sufferers. Due to their lower levels of fragrance, asiatic lilies are least likely to result in headaches for those sensitive to strong smells. Lilies are colorful and bold, with colors ranging from soft pastels to bright oranges. These flowers are perfect for bringing the happiness of flowers to those who have trouble typically enjoying them.

Snapdragons

With minimal fragrance, snapdragons don’t shed much pollen, making them a great flower for those with allergies. These unique flowers represent graciousness and fascination, and their interesting shape makes them eye-catching among other flowers. Snapdragons are a festive addition to bouquets and are an allergy-friendly flower for all occasions.

Daffodils

Gorgeous yellow daffodils are one flower that are least likely to trigger allergy symptoms, making them a preferred choice in the realm of allergy-friendly florals. As a symbol of rebirth, daffodils are a symbol of cheer and fortune. Though most commonly found in shades of yellow, daffodils can also come in other shades such as orange and pink.
