Paperwhites are so gorgeous for the holidays.
They make the whole house smell delicious.

Paperwhites are my absolute favorite...but sadly I didn't force any yet this year...
I know... what was I thinking??!!
If I start now, maybe I will get some buds by Christmas.

I really love the top photo. It is part of a rustic wedding, but it would look perfect for a holiday gathering too. The simple mix of paperwhites, pinecones, and the muslin tablecloth looks so simplerusticvintagey.

If you've never forced paperwhite bulbs before, here is a guide.


  1. love paperwhites, too. i'm so wishing i had some going right now, i think i'll aim for christmas...

    have a lovely thanksgiving.

  2. That first photo is stunning! What a beautiful combination with the pine cones and paperwhites. Wishing I had started mine already too...
