Lilacs Taking Over Our House | Flowers as Decor

Freshly cut Lilacs are sprouting up all over the house… I just can’t seem to get enough! They’re gorgeous and they smell delicious and they brighten up every room.

Update: the coffee table we’ve been using in the living room/great room is actually two narrow tables we used to have stacked on top of each other in the Game Room/Den in our old house, holding a television. It’s temporary but it works. The absolute perfect coffee table for this space hasn’t jumped out at me yet, so until then…

    I love the smell of fresh lilacs! :) Did you cut them by yourself or did you buy them at the market?
