As we transition into shorter days and cooler weather, and I mourn the seasonal ending of our farmer’s market, I was inspired to put together this part-foraged, part-home-grown arrangement to mark this shift. Marrying fall foliage of the Japanese maple branches with the end-of-summer dazzlers like dahlias and garden roses makes for a beautiful pairing to celebrate the new season. I also love this more subdued palette for autumn which is heavy on the rich tones, but unexpectedly airy with the injection of pale pink and lilac tones.
