Autumn Leaves with Garden Rose

Autumn is here (in the Northern Hemisphere) and it is one of my favorite seasons! During autumn you might not get peonies, but the variety of color, texture, and beauty that this season offers is simply heavenly for a floral designer. The leaves in my neighborhood are turning, and the other day I found these perfectly lovely "fallish" varieties, so I thought it was a perfect way to welcome the season! I love that these are all branches/leaves with just one flower variety - garden rose - mixed in.

Flowers: Japanese maple, Japanese privet, rain tree, garden rose, crabapple Kiana Underwood /

Begin with the maple on one side of the vase and the privet on the opposite side - allowing their leaves to droop naturally. Kiana Underwood /

Add the rain tree to the "maple side" - the contrasting colors are beautiful! Kiana Underwood /

Add the roses throughout the arrangement. These roses are so beautiful - I just could not get enough of them, and they lasted quite a long time.

Add the crabapple to the side by privet for a little color and texture, and you are done! Kiana Underwood /
