As I said in your other thread I do flower ordering for work and the rudbeckia this year sold like gangbusters.

Have you considered purple millet or Japonica/ornamental corn? That's popular here too.

Mrs Mars is a red sunflower I grew in pots last year and it makes a nice contrast to the usual yellows.

Bowls of pansiolas and a striped sedge as the thriller in the center did very well in spring and fall. For spring we had yellow/purple and for fall we had giant pansies with the same striped sedge or bunny tails grass. Next year I will look for purple and orange and black for Halloween pansies/violas.
