I feel like it's been forever since I blogged but I guess surviving the biggest floral holiday (and creating floral designs for 2 weddings) will do that! Actually, I blogged on May 8th and talked about last minute Mother's Day Gift ideas and wow, what a great holiday we had. Ok, back to the topic at hand ~ Lovely Lilacs. Have you noticed those lovely lavender colored flowers starting to grace your bushes at home here in NJ and PA? Yes, the local lilacs are in season and one of last weeks weddings had us using bunches and bunches of them in wedding bouquets and centerpieces. Although we were a bit too busy to get the usual photographs, I couldn't resist this shot of our delivery van loaded with these amazing centerpieces. The fragrance inside the van was amazing and driver Jeff and Set Up Assistant Matt were traveling in style on their way to the Lambertville Inn to set this wedding up.
Elegant ceramic compotes were filled lushly with lilacs, lavender Ocean Song Roses, freesia, sweet peas (also in season right now) and touches of soft ming fern. The smell was heavenly (hasn't anyone invented "smell-a-vision" yet?) The season for these amazing blooms is not long but while they are here, our designers are happily including them in our floral designs. As I type this 20 bunches of the beauties are due to arrive today.
