My lilacs were finally ready to be cut and made into arrangements today. So I went out and cut myself a big basket full of them!
They smell amazing and they are full of so many different shades of purple.
I gathered up some containers and filled them with water and started arranging them. I love how rustic and willy-nilly lilacs are. They fall over here and stand up there. They are imperfectly perfect!
I was able to make 3 very full and lush arrangements out of my basket full of lilacs. I can't pick a favorite because I love them all.
See all those beautiful different colors? These all came from the same bush but they all look so different.
I have put them all around my house so that you can smell them no matter where you are at. This blue jar full is in the bonus room, sitting by my framed chalkboard.
This arrangement, in a vintage nosegay vase that was my grandma's, is sitting on the dresser in our bedroom. I am sure the aroma of these lilacs will help us have sweet dreams tonight!
And this triple arrangement is sitting on top of the record player in our living room. I can smell them as I type this and I love it! Lilacs are definitely one of my most favorite flowers and I wish they lasted just a little bit longer!
