Sharing is caring!

I used to believe that for flowers to take my breath away, they had to be pink, long stemmed and heavily scented.  When I opened the chic, understated box from Wildflowers Company this month, I completely fell in love.  The simple combination of white blooms with green foliage made me so giddy I actually squealed to myself as I lifted them from their packaging.

I’ve loved white flowers since I first started watching Sex and the City – I recall seeing Charlotte’s exquisite white floral arrangements in her apartment, and then seeking to recreate them with no skill whatsoever, and a few bunches of chrysanthemums and dahlias in my room [on top of the 5 foot glass hamster tank, home to 24 furry residents] on the night that my boyfriend [now husband] was first coming to see my family home and meet my parents.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve loved white more and more – which is probably a huge mistake given that I have three boys, but still I endeavour to dress them in white, buy white household furnishings and decor, despite the mister warning me against it and shaking his head in the background.
There’s just something about white simplicity – I can’t help myself.   What’s your favourite floral?
