Ok we’re nearly there folks… The weather has most definitely taken a turn and this excites me. Mostly because I have a rather fetching new AW14 coat that I simply HAVE to wear. With my lust for Autumn gearing up a notch, today’s Floral Highlights is right up my street.

Just look at these October picks by Amber Persia

Notes from Amber

Where flowers are concerned October is a season of two halves. On the one hand you have the rich earthy colours of the Autumnal pickings; deliciously scented and oh so delicate chocolate cosmos, burnished conkers, preserved beech leaves and the antique shades of hydrangeas. Add in aged wooden tabletops, natural linen runners, rusted garden urns and chunky pillar candles and you have a perfect rustic table for a laid back Autumn wedding.

On the other hand we have the beginning of winter; striking amaryllis with their stately presence, the gorgeous jewel colours of the first of the new season’s anemones and deliciously scented narcissi direct from the Scilly Isles. Finish with opulent trimmings; bouquets tied with velvet ribbons in rich Baroque shades and tables laden with elaborate candelabras and masses of twinkling votives all add to the sophisticated glamour.

Oh yummy. I think Amber would be very approving of my own floral displays, currently I have both Hydrangeas and Eucalyptus filling Coco HQ.

So what’s your fave October flower…? Are you currently choosing your Autumnal wedding flowers…?

If you’re a Bride looking for seasonal inspiration then delve into the Floral Highlights archives to find your chosen month.

Thank you once again to Amber for all of this pretty.

Lot’s of love…
