Centerpieces Great for Fall

When we talk about centerpieces, we’re usually talking about weddings. Centerpieces seem to get short changed a bit because of this. We like centerpieces for a lot of occasions especially intimate dinner parties and backyard barbecues. With the fall season officially here, floral centerpieces are a great way to incorporate fall hues and fragrances into your home. We’ve come up with some tips for selecting your perfect fall centerpiece that will work whether you’re choosing one for your wedding or for a girls night in dinner party.

Deep hues are a great way to incorporate the feeling of fall into a centerpiece. Rich, bold colors look great when juxtaposed against lighter cream and peach tones. The play on the dark colors creates an autumnal moodiness while allowing for any color scheme to be applied.

Rustic chic touches are perfect accents to an autumn centerpiece. We love to incorporate gourds, pumpkins, acorns, and wooden accents in a fall centerpiece. There are few things more rustic chic than bright zinnias arranged in a white pumpkin with a shiplap wooden board underneath. Rustic chic accents give endless possibility to fall centerpieces!

Wine colored flowers are some of our favorites for fall. Shades of burgundy, ruby, purple are a great base for centerpieces. Not only do these colors embody fall, they can be added to darker colors for that moody feeling, or lighter colors to lighten up the mood. The versatility of these shades make them perfect for weddings and home decor.

Gold gilded accents round out our tips for choosing a fall centerpiece. We chose to finish with gold gilded accents because they work so well with all of our other tips for fall centerpieces. Gold gilded apples, pumpkins, acorns, even antlers, alongside wine and dark colored flowers create a gorgeous fall themed centerpiece. Gold gilded tipped pine cones arranged in a bed of dark green foliage is a unique and unexpected arrangement. Your pumpkins and gourds will last even longer when dipped in gold, allowing you more time to enjoy your centerpiece, or buying you time if you need to make it a few days in advance of your event.

Being an FTD Top 100 partner, Buckhead florist, Peachtree Petals, has the access to unique flora and fauna selections you won’t find just anywhere.

Best Places to Have Outdoor Wedding in Atlanta

With historic charm and the natural beauty of decades old Magnolia, Oak, and Peach trees, and temperate weather, Atlanta is an unrivaled city for a wedding. There’s no place like it, and while that’s wonderful news for fellow Atlantians, it can be difficult when it comes to selecting a wedding venue. Many brides and grooms are looking to plan their special day in a lovely outdoor setting, hoping to incorporate the natural beauty the city has to bring. With so many choices for Atlanta weddings, we’ve compiled a brief list of some of our favorite places to have an outdoor wedding, with the help of The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Smith Family Farm: The gardens at The Smith Family Farm are a great choice for the couple that desires some rustic, country chic elements on their wedding day. The farmhouse was built in the 1860s and currently is part of the Atlanta Historical Center, giving tours and educating groups about farm life in the Civil War era. The backdrop for the wedding are original Civil War era farm buildings, immaculately kept penned gardens. You can even arrange for costumed interpreters to hold craft demonstrations and have the Smith Family Farm sheep welcome your guests to further enhance the rustic tone of the evening.

Margaret Mitchell House: Most Atlanta natives know about the Margaret Mitchell House. Many can tell you where it is, but few have ever been inside it. This historic landmark makes for such a versatile wedding space. Though best suited for a smaller wedding, the Margaret Mitchell House works well for many wedding themes and concepts. The ceremony and reception can take place within the house or in the elegant backyard, making it a venue well suited for the possibility of inclement weather on your wedding day. Plus, the historic charm of the house makes an excellent backdrop for pictures taken in the front yard of the home.

Rhodes Hall: Once the residence of Amos Rhodes, founder of Rhodes Furniture, Rhodes Hall is a classic Atlanta icon. Located on the prominent Peachtree Street, this castle-like venue is the perfect location for a bride who wants to feel like a princess on her wedding day. Rhodes Hall has a variety of spaces to be rented for your wedding depending on your needs and your wedding size. We especially appreciate the gorgeous rolling lawns on the hall grounds, which serve as an excellent space for an outdoor ceremony. Rose Garden at Atlanta Botanical Gardens: The Atlanta Botanical Gardens are one of Atlanta’s most popular attractions. The Rose Garden within the city’s Botanical Gardens make for such a unique wedding venue. The fragrant perfume of the garden’s many variety of roses linger in the air as guests watch you exchange heartfelt vows. This venue incorporates even more of Atlanta’s charm as the Midtown skyline hangs in the backdrop.

There is no shortage for gorgeous, unique outdoor Atlanta wedding venues. With so many places to choose from for venue, we want to make your selection for Atlanta wedding flowers easy.

Joanna Gaines Farm Table to Bouquet

From her adoration of her husband’s onscreen antics, to her ability to spot shiplap under almost any wall, to her incorporation of personalized touches in her homes, it’s hard not to fall in love with HGTV’s Joanna Gaines. Recently, Joanna Gaines shared a handy tip to spruce up any flower arrangement. Our flower experts here at Atlanta florist, Peachtree Petals, are always looking for exciting new takes on traditional arrangements, and this tip certainly fits the bill.

From her Magnolia farm table to bouquet, Joanna explains her unique trick to flower arranging is using leftover basil in her flower arrangements. She uses the remnants to add pops of color and fragrance to flower arrangements she’s placed around her home. Even if you’re not cooking with basil regularly enough to have leftovers to add to your arrangements, a basil plant needs careful trimming once it begins to flower, so if you’re not ready to use it in a fresh salad or pasta sauce, you can use the leaves with your flowers. Conversely, if you’re constantly using your basil leaves for yummy recipes, this trick works well with other herbs like rosemary, mint, and thyme.

This trick would perfectly compliment a Peachtree Petals flower arrangement, especially as a means to spruce up a days old bouquet adding additional verdant pops of color and enhancing the fragrant quality of your gorgeous floral arrangement. The Buckhead and Luxury collections are perfect arrangements with which to try this trick, in addition to our copious selection of centerpieces.

The Atlanta flower shop is a full-service florist with expertise ranging from unique custom floral arrangements, wedding flowers, luxury gift baskets, and indoor plants. Peachtree Petals has arrangements of all sizes and price points for any occasion with flat-rate Atlanta flower delivery and fast, inexpensive nationwide shipping. It’s easy to see why Peachtree was recently named Atlanta’s Number One florist by 11Alive news and Wedding Wire and The Knot’s top Atlanta Florist for several years in a row.

Visit www.peachtreepetals.com today to browse our extensive online collection of arrangements from our exclusive Buckhead and Luxury collections, or to contact a florist for a custom made arrangement. Whether or not you try Joanna’s tip with one of our arrangements, we’re confident you’re going to love your order, which is why we stand by our Peachtree Guarantee for freshness and quality. Contact us today to take advantage of our same day shipping and begin enjoying your arrangement immediately.
