Fall is in the air! Whether you feel the chill as you step outside in the morning or feel the need to wrap yourself in a soft sweater and drink a hot beverage, the autumn season is in full swing. With the change of seasons comes a change in seasonal blooms, and there is nothing more popular than fresh fall flowers with deep, rich, and regal hues. However, you might call these hues jewel tones. Jewel tones are a trending color palette that mimics the colors of precious gemstones, like emeralds, rubies, and sapphires. They offer a welcoming feel and a cozy warmth that pairs perfectly with chilly weather and the natural hues we see in fall foliage. Here at Frugal Flower, the best florist in MetroWest, we are exploring our favorite autumn blooms that land on the jewel tone spectrum and create the most brilliant seasonal bouquets.

A Cozy Rainbow of Jewel-Toned Blooms

Sapphire Thistle

Cool blue like sapphire, blue thistle is a common accent to spot in sensational fall arrangements. While their jewel-toned hue is enough to lure you in, their unique shape and spikey petals add a level of excitement, regality, and unexpectedness when nestled among soft, round, fluffy blooms.

Amber Dahlias

One of the showstoppers of autumn flowers, the orange dahlia, is large, bold, and multidimensional, with many layers of quirky petals. Their warm, jewel-tone orange hue screams fall while mirroring the gemstone citrine and symbolizing elegance and positivity.

Gold Sunflowers

Golden yellow sunflowers are another warm jewel-tone bloom that many people simply adore. Their brilliance lights up any room or arrangement, while the dark undertone of a sunflower’s iconic yellow hue paired with its deep brown center keeps its color grounded.

Amethyst Calla Lilies

Purple calla lilies offer a dark and moody tone to fall bouquets and Thanksgiving centerpieces. Their cool jewel tone speaks to the violet variety of quartz, also known as amethyst. Sometimes referred to as “black,” depending on the bloom, purple calla lilies are ideal for “spooky season.”

Ruby Asiatic Lilies

Red Asiatic lilies can have a luxurious and prominent black undertone, reflecting the vibrant elegance of red ruby gemstones. Lilies are always a dazzling addition to autumn arrangements as their large petals and anthers draw your attention to their undeniable romantic beauty.

Emerald Eucalyptus

Loved and admired for all occasions year-round, eucalyptus is especially alluring as its cool, emerald, green hue enlivens and rejuvenates autumn floral arrangements. Whether silver dollar eucalyptus, seeded eucalyptus, or “baby blue” eucalyptus, it is the perfect accent to vivid jewel-toned blooms.

Bronze Chrysanthemums

Last but surely not least is bronze chrysanthemums paying homage to gorgeous amber. Mums themselves are shining stars and icons of the autumn season, and with brown undertones adding depth and dimension to the yellow and orange hues, they are a stunner on the jewel-tone spectrum.

It can be easy to see why the fall season is favored by many. The colors that Mother Nature paints our world in, alongside crisp aromas of apples, leaves, and pumpkin spice, not to mention getting cozy under a blanket, are all things we look forward to during this transitional season. Here at Frugal Flower, we embrace autumn the best way we know how – with incredible autumn blooms and jewel-toned hues for decor, centerpieces, and even gifts for our dinner hosts.
