A Boo-tiful Bouquet

Halloween doesn’t have to mean creepy! For a bountiful and festive bunch, go for a mix of greenery, pepperberries and orange-hued florals. Floribunda roses and ranunculus will provide a punch of orange, while the plum calla lilies and pin cushion protea will give the unconstructed arrangement an eclectic twist perfect for the holiday.
