Fall is a busy time for entertaining, with football games, Thanksgiving gatherings, and Halloween parties vying for our attention. The right autumn floral arrangement can enhance the festive atmosphere of your home, and makes the perfect gift when someone else is doing the hosting. Here are a dozen fall flower choices ranging from cute to classy.

Who said fall colors must always be orange, brown, and yellow? If you already have an abundance of these colors in your fall décor, you need contrast, and this purple flower bouquet won’t fade away against a background of yellow and orange.

The flower arrangement includes classical favorites like roses and carnations, as well as the multi-petaled cremone mum. Save the shimmering purple glass vase for future monochromatic purple arrangements, or pair it with yellow flowers in a springtime floral arrangement.

In the language of flowers, Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria, symbolize friendship and devotion. Add the romance of six classic long-stem red roses, and your sweetie won't be left wondering what your true feelings are. The multiple blooms on each stem of the Peruvian lily make it a long-lasting cut flower, up to two weeks. Alstromeria blooms are very ethylene sensitive, so keep the arrangement away from ripening fruit to avoid premature blossom drop.
