I love filling my home with fresh flowers, but it can be difficult to justify spending money on something that will die in a few days. Tulips are my go-to flowers for creating beautiful arrangements without “breaking the bank”.  In this case I used one bouquet of yellow tulips and arranged them in three vases of various heights to create a dynamic center piece for my dinning table. It’s simple yet eye catching and can be arranged different ways for different spaces.

Have a great weekend and make sure you follow my Insta Stories – @LateAfternoon to follow along my European road trip.

A few weekends ago I hosted a pop up shop with Yumi Kim at Platform LA. We brought BabyBlue and set up a mobile flower shop. The flowers served to enhance the beauty of the Yum Kim dresses and prints. I created arrangements for every one who walked away with a purchase and by the end of the day almost all the flowers were gone. It was such a lovely day. Everyone walked away with a beautiful summer pieces and gorgeous blooms to match.

Two things I’m currently loving are little white dresses and making my house look like a flower shop. Happy Flower Friday. I hope you all have a beautiful, sun filled weekend.

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.
