Beginning steps for an autumn stitching

I transferred this pattern to some fabric:
Now to choose some lovely autumn colors:
I think that for the acorn, I might try a combination of these sage greens, camel and dark brown:
For the big pumpkin, one of these oranges:
For the zinnia, petals in this dark red and the center in this deep yellow:
For the sunflower, a combination of these oranges for the petals, dark brown for the stripes in the center, and this soft yellow for the center:
For the chrysanthemum, I think a mixture of this warm yellow and dark yellow:
I will be posting updates on this project regularly, I am planning on using some fancy stitching that I will want to share!
