Category Archives: Flower Friday

It’s the tail end of both lilac and peony season, which means this is my last chance to have the house filled with the delightful scent of lilac. I picked up fresh blooms this week, whipping up a simple arrangement. I like my flowers to look like they have just been picked from the garden. When creating this arrangement I started with the peonies, trimming them to sit 2 inches above the rim of the vase. Next I grouped the lilac together. I kept the lilac stems longer so that they would cascade over the peonies. I filled the empty spaces around the two statement flowers with filler blooms, in this case I picked up pink and white lisianthus. I love how this arrangement turned out. It’s sitting on my coffee table as a write this.

Happy Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by the blog.

Poppy season is now in full swing. The golden poppy is the California state flower and these blooms are absolutely as stunning as they are delicate. I have yet to visit the numerous super blooms happening up and down the coast, but for now filling my home with these gorgeous poppies will have to do.

Happy Friday! Don’t forget to follow my Miami adventures on Instagram and Insta Stories –> @LateAfternoon.

One good thing about the torrential rain that California has had this winter is the amazing amount of flowers that it has produced. The hills in LA are green and covered in golden poppies and the flower market is overflowing with blooms. The best part is that it’s lilac season which means my house smells heavenly. I paired my lilac with fresh mint, because I think it’s a beautiful scent combination.

Here’s a small glimpse into the little reading nook in our new home. I love to read so it’s really important to me that I have a quite space where I can curl up with a good book. Our new house still needs a lot of furniture, art, and rugs, but we’re taking our time decorating so we can make it look just right. Sam is painting new art for our gallery wall while I’m scour antique shops and furniture stores for new pieces to fill the space. One thing that helps our empty home feel alive is fresh flowers. Right now I’m gravitating to simple flora like eucalyptus branches and handfuls of long stemmed hydrangeas arranged in glass vases.

Happy Friday, kittens. Thanks for stopping by the blog, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

I made this bouquet from all the leftover birthday flowers I received over the last week. I picked out the freshest looking blooms and whipped up this lovely arrangement for my bedside table.
