The dahlia is plentiful in this season and blooms in every shade and size one could wish for, making it, in my book, one of the best flowers for centerpieces. My grandfather grew dinner-plate sized lavender dahlia on a largely shaded corner hill of his home. Each year at this time, I note all the dahlia's in magazine arrangements, think of that remarkable patch of earth, and wish I had those bulbs. Luckily, it is not difficult to get equally as spectacular cut dahlias from the market florist when I grocery shop. Here is some of the inspiration I am using for centerpieces this fall.
