Bright and bold with shades of deep maroon and yellow, this palette is reminiscent of the smell of a freshly brewed cup of java! You can really bring this color scheme to life in your floral pieces with gyp, feverfew, burgundy dahlia, and yarrow. Another fun addition to pieces in this palette are dried or silk leaves to really make it have that fall feel.

It wouldn’t be a complete list of fall floral palettes without one that calls on the color of fall’s most recognizable symbol: pumpkins.
