Location location location. You don’t need to bunker down in a barn to give yourself the fall experience. Use your wedding shoot as an opportunity to get out in nature and get those rustic shots. This way you still get your fall fix without compromising on the venue of your dreams.

Color Palette. We are all familiar with the traditional oranges, yellows, and browns that Thanksgiving brings, but in no way do you have to be tied down to that. Explore purples, burgundies, greens, whites and creams as a luxurious alternative to this holiday’s decor.

Harvest it. Trending again is the addition of rustic fruits and vegetables to wedding floral. Pomegranates, tomatoes, kumquats, and apples and make beautiful addition to bouquets and centerpieces while still remaining within the color palette.

Get Rustic. There are so many unique florals available in the fall that no one should feel obligated to work with mums (not that we don’t love them!) Varietals like astilbe, scabiosa pods, and seeded eucalyptus all make great great rustic accents to bouquets, perfect for a Thanksgiving wedding.

Treat your palate! Everyone looks forward to Thanksgiving cuisine. There are endless opportunities for comfort food to make to take center stage at your wedding. Consider featuring apples, butternut squash and heartier vegetables throughout the course – it is the harvest season after all. Dress up the table with more floral accents and you’ll have yourself a spread fit for a king. Or bride.

This week we are featuring one of fall’s favorite flowers – Chrysanthemums. With a short availability window of September to November this fall favorite packs a seasonal punch of autumn hues. Chrysanthemums have a vase-life of 7 to 14 days making them a great choice for weekly arrangements.
Tips for use: Try mixing blaze mums with other fall varietals in shades of yellow, orange and brown to play up the varying hues of this multi-colored bloom.
Convinced by their beauty and ready to add them to your space? H.Bloom features these chrysanthemums in two seasonal bouquets, available here.

As you can see, we couldn’t stay away from pumpkins for long. With our weekly inspiration featuring jack be little pumpkins, we have had this sweet little fruit on our minds twenty-four seven. So, what better way to celebrate one of our favorite fall elements than by honoring it in the kitchen! Below is a curated collection of delectable pumpkin recipes that we are DYING to try. Hopefully you’re just as inspired as we are, and if you do end up giving some a go – be sure to send us a little nibble.
First, the pumpkin basics. Brought to you by Martha herself.
Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Butternut Bacon Syrup. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. And repeat.

It’s photo shoot day here in our NYC market and we’re having fun with some beautiful fall arrangements. Better yet- we’re letting one lucky New Yorker name our favorite (pictured) and be the first to enjoy its beautiful blooms.
The details: Tweet at us (@hbloom) or leave a comment on this picture on our instagram (@hbloomflowers) with your best name for this bouquet! One winner will be chosen and will be enjoying this hand delivered arrangement before the day is over!
Contest ends at 5PM EST and is limited to our delivery areas in New York City.
Things are getting cozy here at H.Bloom. The weather’s getting chilly, we’ve broken out the jackets & scarves, and in a couple lucky places throughout the city we can actually see the leaves changing. In honor of one of the most loved seasons, our varietal of the week is Jack be Little Pumpkins. FUN, right? We think so.
This small pumpkin ranges in size from 3 to 4 inches and is the perfect accent in that autumn arrangement sitting on your kitchen table. Tips for use: try piercing a wooden stake in the base of the pumpkin to add the fruit directly into the arrangement. Even better, add one or more as a grouping at the base of a vase with pine cones and dried lotus pods for a festive accent!
We’re so into these little guys right now that we have a feeling they will be popping up a few more times here on Bloom’s Blog before the month is over. Until then, we think it’s time to go track down a pumpkin latte. Or a pumpkin doughnut… or some pumpkin soup…
This week’s floral bouquets give a nod to the backyard barbecue, that favorite summer pastime. Shades of peach, brown, and orange appear in varietals like peach cymbidium orchids, banksia, orange pincushions, safflower, and kahlua roses.
Glen Mills, Pennsylvania holds a treasured spot–a garden store and nursery called Terrain. The property’s idyllic location is the perfect wedding destination for any floral enthusiast and boasts an elegant yet rustic charm–think farmhouse meets curiosity shoppe tucked inside the woods. Pair a lace gown with heirloom accessories and capture photos in front of a restored antique greenhouse, surrounded by natural beauty.
For those who cannot make it out to Pennsylvania, Terrain also has a second location in Westport, CT. Stop by either location (whether you are looking at wedding venues, or not), grab a bite at the restaurant or peruse their selection of plants (from regular to limited edition). We promise that you will not be disappointed.
