Let The Gourd Times Roll: Make Your Home More Festive This Fall

Posted by

It’s fall, y’all! And here at Welke’s House of Roses, we couldn’t be happier. Any excuse to break out those mums, ranunculus flowers, and celosia blooms is more than welcome at our flower shop. Because of this, you can be sure we decorate our homes as much as possible as the cooler weather and warmer hues grace us.

And this year, we’re helping you to do so as well! As always, we have fall flowers online for you to decorate with or send to loved ones, but we’re also providing four of our favorite tips for a well-decorated home. If you want to buy flowers in Milwaukee for your home this fall or to gift a friend, family member, or partner, you can count on Welke’s House of Roses.

Make An A-door-able First Impression

A handshake can make a lasting first impression in the office just as a door and entryway can make a lasting first impression for your home! Soften the hard lines and add some autumnal flair to your doorway with pumpkins, Indian corn arrangements, colorful wreaths, and more. You can even paint pumpkins with your house number or favorite colors and place a hardy mum plant out front — you’ll have the perfect backdrop for your fall Instagram posts.

Fall In Love With Flowers

There’s an easy way to add fall to just about every room in the house — fall flowers. When you buy flowers online from Welke’s House of Roses, you’ll have a wide collection of autumn flowers to choose from, all of which will look positively festive on your coffee tables, dining room table, kitchen counter, and more. We even offer a classic cornucopia style or a mix of roses and alstroemeria in a pumpkin vase.

Have Some Gourd Ol’ Fun

Now it’s really time to let your fall spirit shine. Collect gourds of all sizes from your local pumpkin patch or store, and use them all throughout your home! When you order flowers, get ready to place two smaller gourds next to the vase. And if you want a chic, cohesive look with the gourds, you can paint them with ivories, golds, or other colors. Simply dip the gourd into the paint for clean, warm lines.

Add Plaid And You’ll Be Glad

Blankets, pillows, and tablecloths are great year-round, but they truly belong come fall. The more warm plaid you can work into the fabrics, the more festive your home will be. Flowers online can go a long way in your home, but cozy plaid blankets and more will add an ambience you’ll love all season long.


Decorating for seasons will make the seasonal fun seem to last longer, and there’s no easier way to do so than to buy flowers from Welke’s House of Roses in Milwaukee. Our online florist can get just the right flowers for you and your home, so order flowers online today — and let the gourd times roll.
