Autumn in Philly is already gorgeous, make no mistake. But at Robertson’s Flowers, we believe you can gild the lily, specifically by adding some dazzling dahlias for Fall to your seasonal decorations. The flower of the moment also happens to be a terrific bloom for the cooler months. It’s intricate beauty adds dimension and texture to an arrangement, and because it comes in a variety of nuanced colors, it plays well against bolder, more audacious harvest hues.
One of our most popular designs, Raspberry Bliss, demonstrates this principle perfectly. A festive grouping of bright garden roses and coxcomb is offset by dahlias in a range of soft peach and orange hues and grounded by a leaf-lined glass cube vase. This looks like the most beautiful bouquet ever pulled from a garden, a nice balance of the fresh and wild with the stylized.
Dahlias aren’t around for very long in the Fall, so get them from Robertson’s Flowers while you can. They make for an arresting element in your seasonal tablescape or an extra special surprise bouquet for someone who appreciates their complexity. As we add texture and interest to our homes for the long, dark, cold winter ahead, dahlias fit right in, bringing an unusual beauty and brightness to our interiors.
