I love a good fall wedding, and for this week’s Flower Chic I thought it be fun to dress up a traditional lattice structure for a fall wedding. I used a palette of orange with touch of black, via some insane black dahlias, chocolate cosmos, and black scabiosa all from Florabundance.
To make the arrangement, I started by wiring maple branches to the trellis to create a nice base shape. Then I wired a piece of caged floral foam to the left side of the arbor. Then I layered in bittersweet and orange berry branches. I placed my 3 types of dahlias, poppies, tulips, and then onto to the smaller flowers, the scabiosa and cosmo into the floral foam.
Finally, I tucked in pieces of pumpkin branches for texture.
To recreate this arrangement you will need:
- caged floral foam, soak in water
- green floral wire
- 3 bunches of orange dahlia
- 2 bunches of red dahlias
- 1 bunch of black dahlias
- 1 bunch of black cosmos
- 1 bunch of black scabiosa
- 3 bunches of maple leaf
- 3 bunches of bittersweet
- 2 bunches of orange berries
