Floral Vignettes Around The House

 A trip to the grocery store and a walk through the garden with clippers yielded a few early spring floral vignettes for the house.
Beginning with white hydrangeas in a green earthenware pitcher for the kitchen island.
But wouldn't it look better...

...in the living room?

Fresh lilacs from the garden initially graced the kitchen table...

...but eventually ended up in the living room on the coffee table.

Then there's this pathetic little arrangement straight from the garden of random flowers and succulents on the window sill!

 My favorite floral vignette though is this simple arrangement of multi-colored roses in a confit pot.
I love it in the family room on the pine trunk.

The only problem with fresh flowers is that they don't last long. 
The hydrangeas and lilacs wilted within 24 hours!
In the meantime, moss or preserved boxwood balls provide an everyday solution in between live plants.
I'll just replace with live ivy topiaries or a flowering plant when we entertain.

I love having fresh flowers around the house. Their beautiful color and sweet aroma brighten my day and make our home feel happy and warm!
Don't you agree?

Lovely arrangements and I so agree, I have to have fresh plants and flowers in my home. In fact I just looked at my vase of daffodils and they are ready to be replaced. Always love seeing the special touches in your home.

Love the fresh lilacs. I can't grow them in Zone 8 but would enjoy them. I was able to enjoy them when we lived in Alaska.

All your arrangements look wonderful in your majolica vases, urns and confit jars.

Beautiful arrangements, Delores. I definitely agree. Fresh flowers and plants in a home are a must. The grocery stores here offer wonderful choices and reasonable prices. It makes it easy for us to have fresh flowers in our homes yea round. Wish we could grow lilacs here.

I love them too. My wisteria bloomed and I had to bring some in just so that it would perfume the house, even for the short time span! Happy spring xo Marlis
