Flowers For Halloween
Brief Background of Halloween
Halloween’s origins were obviously much more spookier than our current celebration of the holiday. Today’s Halloween is a festive time, where adults join the young in enjoying trick or treating, ghosts, spiders, witches and things that go bump in the night. Flowers can play a major role in creating an atmosphere and shaping space. There are so many fun ways to celebrate Halloween with flowers. Halloween began as a very spooky and serious holiday. The Celts viewed it as the end of summer and the beginning of winter. They called it Samhain. It was a period when the boundary between our world and the “otherworld” became thin. It was believed that the dead and fairy folk could cross over into our world.
