Use seasonal edibles with flowers

Ornamental vegetables are tasty to the eye. Go for unusual produce choices like black chili peppers and decorative kale, used in an oblong centerpiece perfect for a rustic farm table.

Moriah Harris of Portland’s Sellwood Flower Co. began with a traditional palette of autumnal spider mums, laurel bay, solidago and viburnum foliage and added dashes of creamy peach Cafe au Lait dahlias to lend sophistication. She sourced flowers from Bonnie Blooms (Kelso, WA), Northern Pacific Farm (Canby, OR), J. Foss Garden Flowers (Chehalis, WA) and Charles Little & Co. (Eugene, OR), as well as California greens.
