Peony season is in full bloom here in Northwest California. It seems to announce the beginning of our wedding season each year with their frilly fragrant giant blossoms. Available in pink, white, burgundy and coral they make a stunning vase flower for your weekly flower vases. They remind me of romance and english country gardens.
My favorite flower to arrange with peonies are roses and (believe it or not!) carnations. Their round shapes mirror each other in shape and create a lush & romantic vase, perfect for the bedside table.
Peonies also look amazing with other more unexpected and unusual flowers. My favorite lately has been a peony and protea bouquet.
Tall and elegant, or low and lush, make sure you enjoy some yourself soon!
