The above bouquet is on the coffee table, an interesting mix of mainly pink roses, eucalyptus, and blackberries.
This potted plant, which looks between a hyacinth and a narcissus, has a faint, sweet fragrance, and I love it's simple white and green. I put it in front of a mirror; double the beauty!
OK, these are my favorites and my go-to flower when I want an elegant celebratory look paired with outstanding, gorgeous scent: lilies! One of the buds is opening and the already the whole kitchen is sparkling with its amazing perfume. My mother's favorite flowers are stargazer lilies (I think of her every time I see them) and mine are the white lilies.
For the center of the dining table I chose oversized green hydrangeas, which are so big that they look like pom-poms! I cut them relatively short so people can see each other from accross the table. They are so simple and understated, and can be kept for many years when dried.
I am looking forward to this evening when Ramon comes home to all these pretty blossoms. They've prettied up the place for sure!
In the meantime, I have loads of shopping, chopping, baking, and preparing to do.
