When I found Ranunculus and Dahlias only a few feet from each other at the market my previous ideas for a flower arrangement went “poof”. I just can’t get enough of these color combinations, so I’m carrying them into my fall decor with the addition of pumpkins of course.

In the post Transitioning From Summer To Fall Home Tour, I shared how I added warm wood tones to the family room. Now I’ve added that extra layer of fall color to mingle with the earthy browns.
Have you noticed how popular Dahlias are this year? Or maybe I’m just late to the party and they have always been this popular. They’re in almost every home magazine I’ve looked at this fall and in so many gorgeous colors. I even spied faux Dahlias stems the other day in pastel colors that I’m thinking hard about buying.
For this arrangement, I picked white Dahlias because they seemed like the perfect backdrop to show off the soft peach, orange and yellow Ranunculus. Once I had the flowers arranged I filled in with eucalyptus stems.
When it comes to floral arrangements I’m still a novice. I finally stopped rearranging the flowers when one started loosing its petals. I’m only mentioning this because I hear people say all the time they can’t arrange flowers. Of course every arrangement is a little different but here are a few tips that might help with these flowers.
Flower Arranging Tips
- Create a grid like a hashtag with clear tape on the top of the vase
- Group the largest flowers together
- Add smaller flowers in random color groups
- Last add groups of greenery to fill in spaces
My first haul of pumpkins was mostly for the front porch but I also grabbed a bunch of mini white pumpkins and little yellow striped ones too. Still waiting for green pumpkins to show up at the market and then I’ll be all set.
The biggest change to the room and just in time for fall is a new rug. I must have looked at a hundred rugs before deciding, and I still wasn’t completely sure I order the right one until it was in the room.
I love the dramatic difference this rug has made in the room. It’s as if the new rug was the missing link. The time-worn look of the pattern and the faded areas where the colors of the medallion designs overlap give the room a more casual look then I had before.
