Crisp cool days, gorgeous sunsets capping off days of crystal clear blue skies, the horizon teasing with a rainbow of crimson, amber and siena leaves.
Fall is here and at The English Garden we couldn’t be happier. Sure, we loved summer with its vibrant palettes of pinks and corals and purples. But enough already, we are ready for pumpkin time!
We kicked off fall with back to back classes celebrating glorious fall colors and textures. In our Sunset inspired class, budding designers created a lush pave of sun-drenched orange, persimmon, yellow and amber florals. Playful hints of vegetative elements-wheat, chili peppers and bittersweet-contrasted with inviting blooms from fall’s gardens-chrysanthemums, celosia, roses, and dianthus. That perennial staple of the homecoming game, the yellow football mum, took center stage in this bouquet with sophisticated aplomb.
With our tables dressed, the EG design divas turned to exterior pursuits with a textural, unique door swag. Gourds, de-petaled sunflowers, dianthus, willow, millet, preserved beech, and cattails merged delightfully in this design by Renee. A lovely alternative to a traditional wreath, the door swag design offered students an opportunity to gain a true appreciation for the intricate interplay of autumn materials-subtle in color, rich in texture.
Our fun and informative class series isn’t the only place fall makes a splash at the EG. Our cooler is heartily stocked with blooms of roses, tulips, hydrangea, gerberas, chrysanthemums, dahlias and lilies awash in fall color while our “goodies” shop is ablaze with vibrant crotons, bronzed and gilded mums, and orchids in shades of plum and cabarnet.
Until the leaves fully turn, come get your color fix at The English Garden. We guarantee you will find something to “fall” in love with.
