This may sound funny, but I've recently rediscovered gardenias. Growing up, I remember thinking they were a little too smelly for my taste, but I've been seeing them all over the place lately, and it's impossible to deny how classically beautiful they are! I just love how perfectly romantic they are, and yes, I even love the way they smell now! My new love affair with gardenias had me collecting photos from here and there over the past several weeks, so I decided it was about time that I feature them. Gardenias are a great, fragrant option for bouquets, and they hold together well without their stems, making them a great option for hair flowers, to place on top of cakes, in centerpieces and even work well as place cards! A pretty white gardenia sitting on top of each plate and napkin? How can you not love that?
