citrus florals

No matter the season or occasion, a bunch of fresh-cut blooms lends a celebratory atmosphere to any space. However, standard grocery store bouquets often feel tired while large arrangement from florists can feel ostentatious (not to mention unaffordable). While scrolling through Pinterest in search of more accessible options to brighten up our table top, I came this citrus infused bouquet:

The drama and unexpected nature of the arrangement stopped me in my tracks (aka pinterest scrolling...) Whether lemons act as floral stand-ins in large vases or kumquats sit interspersed between lush greens and a peony or two, citrus feels fresh, unexpected, and decidedly summery. As the last few weeks of the season approach, here are a few of my favorite images of citrus taking centerstage.
