The Warm & Cool Toned Flowers You’ll Want for Fall Arrangements

Jewel tones are a stunning and alluring color pallet that screams autumn. Based on popular gemstones, like rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, jewel tones are vibrant and rich hues that also offer a dark undertone that some might describe as deep or moody. Mother Nature does a fabulous job at uncovering some amazing jewel tones in nature during the fall months, as leaves turn from a summertime green to golden, amber, and even ruby hues before leaving the branches of trees, exposing a dark brown tree. In the wonderful world of fall flowers, jewel tones have been stealing the spotlight with their increasing popularity and alluring hues. Here at Charlotte’s premier florist The Blossom Shop, we are celebrating jewel tones and discovering how warm and cool jewel-toned blooms work together to create marvelous autumn arrangements.

Warm Jewel Tones vs. Cool Jewel Tones

When you think of jewel-tone flowers, you may think of the warm, rich red, yellow, and orange blooms like chrysanthemums, dahlias, and other iconic autumn stems. Or, perhaps you like the deep, moody, cool hues like blue, green, and purple florals, including calla lilies, orchids, button mums, and delphinium that remind us of the cool sweater weather that is just around the corner. However, both warm jewel tones and cool jewel tones are necessary for creating the perfect warm, cozy, rich, and profound fall arrangement or even Thanksgiving centerpiece. Whether you enjoy utilizing complementary jewel tones or mixing and matching between warm and cool hues, it is important to note the basics based on traditional color theory and the color wheel.

Complementary Jewel-Toned Floral Hues

Gold & Amethyst Flowers

The jewel tones of yellow and purple are nothing short of regal and royal. As you perk up your autumn decor with this dignified duo, look toward blooms like uplifting sunflowers, Craspedia billy balls, daisies, football chrysanthemums, carnations, purple calla lilies, orchids, larkspur, purple pompon, and dianthus. This unstoppable jewel-toned pairing will offer the best of autumn in the most sophisticated and graceful way.

Amber & Sapphire Flowers

A warm amber orange hue paired with a cool sapphire blue is a classic combination of complementary colors. Imagine the deep richness of petals that offer multi-toned oranges like alstroemeria, lilies, button mums, and dahlias nestled among brilliant blues like blue thistle, hydrangea, delphinium, and iris. This color combination is nothing short of cozy and radiant, like the glow of a fireplace with tiny blue flames that crackle above the coals.

Ruby & Emerald Flowers

Our final jewel-toned couple is ruby red and emerald green. Of course, your mind might take you straight to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season with this festive color combo. However, when we look at rich red roses, like carnations, dianthus, dahlias, chrysanthemums, and gerbera daisies, nestled among a bed of green eucalyptus or accompanied by green button mums, succulents, green orchids, or even Granny Smith apples, it is undeniably autumn.

As you enjoy the fall season, note where you spy jewel tones in nature, home decor, and even fashion. Jewel-toned flowers are sensational this time of year and make excellent arrangements to gift to friends, family, loved ones, dinner hosts, or anyone who could use an autumn pick-me-up.
