purple Halloween
a purple take on Halloween

This is another take on a Halloween bouquet – cabbage, black callas, skimmia, thistle, statice and limonium with astrantia and hypericum berries.

I think of pinks and purples as summer colours, but I am acutely aware of the seasons. I think people buy colours to suit the interior design in their homes, and if buying for someone else, they base it on the colours the person wears, or impressions of colour choice due to personality. It’s all fascinating!

This is our Halloween bridal bouquet and two bridesmaids’ bouquets for a wedding today. The Chinese lanterns, (physalis) and orange roses are a stark contrast to the purple erngium and lisianthus. The spiky grevillia and oak leaves give them the ‘witchy” look!
