Is there a common expression to describe a situation where everything comes together perfectly?

UPDATE: The phrase that kept going through my head was "perfect storm," but that holds more of a negative connotation.

  • Can you be more specific about what kind of "coming together" you're referring to? There are a number of good words and idioms that might fit, I think, but they refer to different types of situations. – Kyle Strand Jan 20 '14 at 23:06

    Or "it all fell into place". Or "everything came up (smelling like) roses". – nxx Jan 20 '14 at 23:19
  • @JohnLawler That's the one I was going to recommend, I'd add it as an upvotable answer if I were you. – IQAndreas Jan 21 '14 at 5:24

You could consider when the stars are in alignment (or when the stars align)

When an unexpected and nearly impossible event takes place. Usually due to pure luck or the divine intervention of God.

Or if you want to wax more lyrical

When the moon is in the Seventh House

And Jupiter aligns with Mars

Then peace will guide the planets

And love will steer the stars

That will be the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
