We love the bright, saturated colors of the Dahlias and Zinnias in the gardens and markets in early Fall. These big, colorful blossoms make it so easy to make spectacular bouquets at home.
For an elegant arrangement we took two just slightly different shades of dahlias and arranged them, alternating colors. We snipped the stems so they were just a bit shorter than the silver bucket we were using as a vase (this allows the arrangement to rest on the edge of the vase).
The full heads and intense colors of dahlias and zinnias also look great packed in an arrangement with other autumnal colored flowers.
