Pair seasonal edibles with flowers

Make a centerpiece sizzle with hot red peppers and golden sunflowers.

Andrea K. Grist, of Andrea K. Grist Floral Designs in Lees Summit, Missouri, celebrates autumn by pairing sunflowers and peppers with golden marigolds and crimson zinnias and celosia, along with herbs and greenery. “The addition of fruits and vegetables to a floral design always make me think of the harvest season,” she says. Grist sourced fresh flowers from Whites Creek Farm (Nashville, TN) and Urban Buds: City Grown Flowers (St. Louis, MO). (c) Andrea K. Grist Floral Design Photography with permission.
