Who said flowers have to be boring! Not us. Halloween is one of our favorite time’s of year in the Nosegay Flower Shop. We love to have fun with holidays! We put together some creative ideas when it comes to dressing up your flower arrangements for Halloween this year.

 

Use that pumpkin! A pumpkin doesn’t have to sit plain in the middle of a table...why not add a floral bouquet to it? This is one of our favorite creative twists when it comes to Halloween and flowers this year. Simply cut out the middle of the pumpkin, find a small vase that fits in it with some water and add flowers! It’s so easy and your guests will love it.

Time for a black vase. Now typically a black vase would not be our favorite but we like it during Halloween! It adds some mystery and theme to any traditional flower arrangement.

Find a skull. One of our other favorite vases during the Halloween season is a skull. It’s the perfect size and shape to hold any type of flowers and adds something special to any arrangement. It has a similar impact as a pumpkin but a little more spooky...in a good way!

Bats, spiders, anything creepy. Feeling like you want less effort to making your flower arrangement themed for halloween? Well, all you have to do is buy (or make) a few creatures to put in your flower arrangement. Whether you want them to be noticeable or more of a sneaky touch, the creepy crawlers in your flowers will be fun for everyone at the table!

It’s all about orange, red and yellow flowers. Nothing says halloween and the fall more than yellow, orange and red flowers. Make sure regardless of what arrangement you are putting together that they have fall colors in them. Only a few weeks left until winter is here so take advantage of the fall colors now!

Hope everyone enjoyed our Halloween inspiration this week. We’d love to see any of your creations on facebook or instagram so tag us in your arrangements! Check us out at http://www.nosegayflowers.net/ for any and all help when it comes to creating the perfect flower moment!

With the clock about to strike October 1st...you know what that means. It’s time to start preparing for Halloween. The good news is there are plenty of things to do in D.C. to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Lots of fun and also low-key ways to spend this spooky holiday. If you are lucky enough to be having your wedding on Halloween weekend make sure your wedding flowers represent the holiday. But always keep it subtle.

Nightmare on M Street (October 25). 30+ bars included in this event all throughout Georgetown. Make sure to buy your tickets early. This evening is sure to be fun but also chaotic. Be prepared to wait in lines and meet up with your friends beforehand. It’ll definitely be crowded so go with the group you plan to spend the evening with.

Boo at the Zoo (October 24-26, 5:30-8:30pm). Looking for a family friendly way to spend this holiday? Well check out the event at the National Zoo this Halloween season. Feel free to walk around in your costumes or just enjoy a night at the zoo dressed in your regular clothing. 

Fright Fest at Six Flags America (September 27-November 1). Want to get out of the city for a bit? Head to six flags to enjoy the holiday with your family. Again, this is a great place for a family to celebrate the holiday. 

Halloween Haunt at Kings Dominion (September 26-November 2). Great news about Kings Dominion is that you have plenty of time to go this season and catch the Halloween spirit. Take advantage! It’s a bit of a drive but you are sure to enjoy it.

D.C. Drag Queen Race (October 28). One of our favorite events in D.C. all year and it just so happens to coincide with Halloween. Start the holiday early and head over to the D.C. Drag Queen Race the Tuesday before Halloween.

Crime Museum’s Haunted House (October 23-November 1). This activity is too frightening to even talk about. If you want to be scared this is the place to go. Here at Nosegay flowers DC we may try to avoid heading here but to each his own!

Halloween Party at your Friends. Now this is our favorite way to celebrate Halloween. This year Halloween is on a Friday night so take full advantage. You are bound to know at least one friend having a party or get together so make sure to head over there. You can dress casual with your costume or extreme but either way don’t be the one that shows up at the party without a costume on.

Staying in and Watching a Scary Movie. Not much more to say than that. Great way to spend Halloween and there are plenty of movies to choose from!

Explore D.C.’s Pumpkin Patch. There are many different pumpkin patches to choose from all over the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area. They have lots to offer including acres and acres of pumpkins, apples to pick and lots of fresh cut flowers. If you forget to get some Halloween themed flowers while you’re there, don’t worry there are always same day delivery flowers to make up for it.

Markoff’s Haunted House (October 3-November 1). This is a D.C. must! It’s in Northern Maryland but definitely something to check out at least once. Plan to spend your whole night there. You’ll have to wait for a little bit to go through the forrest but there are plenty of activities there to keep you busy.

Hope you enjoyed all our suggestions! The most important thing this Halloween season is to have fun and take advantage of all the different activities you can do. Happy Halloween!
