Orange and black are so quintessentially Halloween and autumn in general, that the two colors combined any other time feels out of place.
Isn’t it interesting how this color combination instantly takes our mind to this spooky holiday? Have you ever stopped to think why might that be?
Of course, we all have personal associations with colors: orange maybe reminds you of your favorite scarf or a sunset you’ve caught that one time during a vacation; black might be your favorite dress or shoes color… these are specific personal color associations all of us have. So what is it about orange and black that is so universal?
The color black is strong, and powerful. It has traditionally represented evil, death, darkness, and the unknown- making it an obvious choice when it comes to a Halloween color.
Orange is lively, friendly, warm, and inviting! It has the best traits of it’s parents (red and yellow)– it’s energergetic, and happy. It’s associated with celebrations, and stimulation.
Orange represents warmth and autumn, while black symbolizes cold and winter. Life, and death. What a perfect combination- yin and yang.
We hope you like our classic Halloween creation this year!
Classic rich auburn and candy corn orange, tones of ginger and marigold contrasting against licorice black in this bewitching floral creation.
Roses, calla lilies, and eclipse black orchids make a gorgeous combination that will leave nobody unimpressed!
To add an extra ominous feeling to it miniature spiders, spiderwebs and bats are scattered all over the floral canvas! And a truly autumn Halloween design wouldn’t be complete without some pumpkins, firethorn, and auburn leaves. This design is absolutely stunning for the season!
