October: Marigold and Cosmo
Both marigolds and cosmos hold meaning for the month of October. Cosmos are dainty flowers that bloom in early summer and continue blooming into fall before the first frost hits. They’re a cheerful bloom with multiple hues including red, white, yellow, pink, and orange that symbolize peace and harmony. Marigolds, a fragrant, hearty bloom, come in a variety of autumn colors including orange, yellow, and white. With their bold hues, they symbolize optimism, prosperity, and the rising sun.
Marigolds offer beautiful texture in bouquets and table arrangements, along with a bold pop of color in a floral arch or altar backdrop. Cosmos are perfect for adding a touch of texture and whimsy to a table arrangement.
