Picking your flowers (and vase) _ When selecting your flowers, try to pick a few colors and shapes that will work well together. You can go with a monochromatic design (all one color) for a contemporary look, choose all warm colors for a strong happy statement, or mix every color you love for a natural feeling that will bring the outdoors indoors.
Fall color palettes will be more refined, with a variety of rich textures gaining in importance. Look for dried grasses and berries accenting mini callas, Leonidas roses, and Asiatic lilies. Color selections are graced by rust, bronze, amber or copper hues. Centerpieces will be natural yet elegant with deeper color accents.
