Halloween is full of tradition and memories from childhood. We still love the colors, the customs and the fun that holiday embodies. At Griffin’s Floral Design, we want to ensure that you will have everything you need to celebrate the season- from brilliant fall flowers to spooky arrangements. Whatever your Halloween tradition and style, you can count on us to deliver.
Halloween Origins: Since the dawn of civilization, cultures have celebrated the abundance of their harvest. There were often ceremonies to ward off evil spirits for the winter. Harvest festivals are still a fun tradition today, although they don’t carry the spiritual significance they once did. To commemorate the season, go with seasonal colors such as red, orange and yellow for indoor bouquets; fall mums also make fantastic autumn decor for your front porch or entranceway.
Jack-O-Lanterns: Night watchmen used to carry lanterns on their rounds, and these were often gourds and pumpkins hollowed out and carved to allow illumination. Known originally as “jacks of the lantern”, the term eventually shifted to the pumpkin itself. Bats, ghosts and witches likely arose out of the night time exploits of these workers. Send some Halloween fun with whimsical gerbera daisies, falll foliage and spooky details!
Trick or Treating: All Hallow’s Eve was both a religious observance and a popular time to play mischievous pranks on the townspeople. In the 1930’s, some communities began to introduce the candy tradition as a replacement for the mischief which was getting out of hand. Thus “trick or treat” was truly the option given to those who heard it, and the most popular Halloween tradition was born. Check out the tricks and treats in Griffin’s Halloween collection!
