Answer: Wildflowers are typically a mix of lots of different sizes and colors of hardy annuals and perennials. If you do not regularly mow your lawn, you could broadcast the seeds in the grassy area and they will sprout. What you'll end up with is a pasture of tall grasses and flowers. If your landscape is a casual rather than a carefully maintained one, the wildflowers will add splashes of color all summer long. On the otherhand, if your lawn is well manicured, you may not be happy with the result because you won't be able to enjoy the flowers and still mow to have a well manicured lawn. I'd suggest sowing the seeds in containers - there are so many decorative pots and long planters to choose from - and placing the pots in sunny locations in the garden and lawn areas. This way you can still have a nice lawn and splashes of color throughout the season. You can move the containers when you need to mow the lawn.
Best wishes with your landscape!
