How to set a table for fall

I love any excuse to play with flowers, but I have a special place in my heart for wildflowers. My grandmother’s farm in Southeast Missouri was surrounded by beautiful wildflowers we’d bring in for fresh arrangements to disperse throughout her home.

As a young child, it was my first experience playing with flowers. With wildflowers, there’s no investment and no right or wrong way to arrange them, eliminating any pressure. That’s how I like to set a table, too. Without rules.

Wildflowers also symbolize the end of summer and onset of fall to me. The golden hues as they blow through the fields and effortless beauty of just being. For today’s fall table setting, I wanted to incorporate a little of that effortless fall style integrating kale and wildflowers {also available at select grocery stores}.
