Who is lucky enough to have magnolias for a flower arrangement? Me! My neighbor (Thanks, Phyllis!) has the perfect tree in her front yard and lets me pick freely.
There are only a few days a year when you can even hope to make an arrangement of magnolias and today was the day.
I took this darling antique sugar bowl and filled it with a few pristine magnolias and some Bradford Pear blooms (Note: Bradford Pear blossoms do not smell good. The photograph keeps the secret, but if you want to make an arrangement with magnolias for indoors, use a different accent flower).
This sugar bowl is the one that I found at the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio last year! (FYI: Mark your calendar. This year's Fair is September 25/25/26 ). Have you ever made a flower arrangement in a sugar bowl? You should try it!
