Interested in creating an unexpected, yet undeniably sophisticated arrangement that will work for the autumn season? We caught up with the masterminds behind Crimson Horticulture Rarities to find out how to do just that.
Leigh and Allison of Crimson Horticultural Rarities recommend using unusual flora in darker, moodier colors to create your bouquet. For this bouquet we started with Pottery Barn’s Etched Mercury Glass Vase in a medium size. Using a vase with a larger mouth makes it easier to add some of the striking, unusual and large florals that were added to the arrangement.
For similar flowers to those we used, try adding
- Castor bean plant
- Black dahlias
- Chocolate cosmos
- Ornamental black grasses
- Black ornamental pepper
- Silver foliage such as eucalyptus

For a large arrangement like this one, instead of using a flower frog, try cutting a length of chicken wire and then crumpling it to fit inside the vase. This will help your flowers to hold their placement in the bouquet. Just slip stems through the holes in the chicken wire as you go.
Make sure to start with your biggest florals first to establish a framework, and then fill in with smaller florals. Remember to examine your arrangement from several angles to make sure you’re not overfilling in places or leaving gaps in other spots.
Cluster smaller vases around the finished bouquet to create a larger vignette.
Here are some more of Crimson Horticultural Rarities‘s top tips:
- Choosing in-season flowers that are locally grown will ensure that your blooms last longer.
- If something doesn’t look quite right, twist the flower or grass by the stem to change the direction of the placement
- To change water in a large vase like this one, cradle it in one arm, cup the arrangement, and pour old water into a sink before refilling.
- For a fun “super local” element, take a fall stroll through your neighborhood to look for unusual plants, branches, or other seasonal elements you can add to your arrangement.
How are you decorating with fall florals?
