Autumn Color Series: Pink

Normally, when one thinks of autumn, pink isn't the first color that comes to mind. But, there are many flowers available in pink right now, so I thought that if I combined them with some peach and orange, I could create an autumnal piece. One of my favorite elements of this arrangement are the lovely currants I was able to find; they lend a unique and unexpected look to the arrangement! Kiana Underwood /

Flowers: garden rose, spray rose, rose bud, zinnia, freesia, trailing blue currant, houseplant greens Kiana Underwood /

Begin by placing the currant, greens, and the rose buds inside your vase. The rose buds look really pretty bunched together, so I kept them together to one side of the vase. Kiana Underwood /

Add the spray roses. I have to say, I love spray roses - they are so pretty when fully opened and these also look lovely put together in abundance. Kiana Underwood /

Add the freesia. Use these to give the arrangement some height and a look of 'disorder'! Kiana Underwood /

Place the zinnia throughout the arrangement for some different shades of pink as well as texture Kiana Underwood /

Save the garden roses (the focal point of this arrangement) for last. You don't need too many; they are so big and beautiful that three will do. Kiana Underwood /

Take a look at your arrangement and see what else it might need to be aesthetically pleasing to your eye. I decided that I wanted to see more of the currant and another stem of my funky houseplant, so I added some more to the top right. Kiana Underwood /
