Until the weather gets warm enough to serve al fresco drinks in my new faux bois pitcher from Terrain, lilacs will do just fine.

Yet another beautiful image of Spring...growing up in the South, we had many wonderful gardens to explore, but lilacs were not in the landscape. Thanks for sharing.

It is a shame we can't smell them they're heavenly.

Dear Eddie, I have been a fan of your work since discovering you on tv (you should have won!) And up until a couple of months ago, I was a design consultant for Calico Home. Anyways, I trust your design sense explicitly and I am wondering if you have any tips on selecting paint colors? Although I work in design and have studied design I still have a challenging time with paint colors. After painting our entire downstairs, I now hate all of my choices and need to start over. Needless to say, I am on the verge of tears over this. Thankfully I love my fabric choices! I would LOVE any advice you may have!
You are a true inspiration to me!

Those lilacs look dreamy, almost like a photograph. Are they from your garden? Let me know what time I should be over for al fresco dining (a favorite of mine this time of the year through September!)

Oh I just love lilacs! Their scent is intoxicating. Great minds must think alike because I also posted today about these lovely blooms!

Are you going to serve drinks in this pitcher while watching the birds bathe in your new birdbath?? If so, sounds like a lovely afternoon!

Eddie, I do not believe I have ever seen a prettier bouquet of Lilacs. Love the pitcher that they are in and the twig table completes the picture, Hugs Kathysue

Ahhhh, I can smell them now! Great pitcher and I need a table like that! That's the wall color I have in the laundry room along with a pale blue ceiling. The afternoon sun makes the room glow - something much needed when doing laundry! Off to cut more lilacs --

How perfectly lovely! That pitcher is the perfect container for the lilacs.
Have a fabulous week!

Lilacs are one of my spring favorites. They have such a lovely fragrance. I often fill glass bowls around the house with them. Wishing you happiness, Katherine

Stunning! The pitcher is gorgeous, and the lilacs...oh, if only we could have them around all year! Sigh...

Columbia, Missouri, my hometown and home to Stephens College, my alma mater, is awash in lilacs in the spring. One year while back in town for reunion, Dawn Wells (yes, Mary Ann of Gilligans fame) commented how gorgeous the lilacs in town were. So the next morn before an alumnae board meeting, I gathered lilac blooms (both purple & white) from bushes at my parents and brought them in for Dawn. Her face just lit up and the meeting was so much more enjoyable with scent of lilacs wafting through the room.

We need you for our painting class, for still lives. Just painted lilacs and they did not look like yours.

Jealous of all those lilacs!

Nice flowers in that beautiful vase. I went to Terrain's website and decided it may just be worth a little roadtrip to check it out. Hope you had a good weekend and got some relaxation in.

What a gorgeous photograph. I just love the combination of the rustic table with the softness of the sweet, sweet lilacs. Absolutely beautiful. xoxoTrina

Oh - gorgeous! Lilacs are just the best. We are so far north that our lilac bushes only have 2" leaves and are not going to break into bloom for at least 2 more weeks. Last year the blooms stayed on forever, I almost got sick of bringing them into the house!
Love the pitcher.

I have a question not sure if you are able to help me. I saw your gorgeous picture of the carnation centerpiece and as everyone else fell in love with it! I friend am helping a friend with her wedding, it will be in a theater! Do you have any ideas on how to decorate a stage area? I have searched for ideas, but no one compare to you!! Any ideas you could give me would be greatly appreciated?
