Designing Fall with Mums

Some symbols of Fall are so ingrained in our imagination that we can’t remember how or why they came to be intertwined with the season. The chrysanthemum, for instance. Originally an ancient Chinese flowering herb, this fluffy, golden plant is ubiquitous on front steps and in doorways this time of year, owing to the fact that it actually prefers our cooler, shorter days. And the cornucopia. Though it has come to symbolize the abundance of the harvest, it was once just a horn Zeus wrested away from a she-goat in Greek mythology. And yet here these old, old emblems are, appearing in and around our homes announcing the season.

We at Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist love to see our friends and neighbors designing Fall with mums, but we think we’ve got one better for you. Why not blend two beloved symbols of Fall into one dazzling piece?
