We did 8 weddings the weekend just gone…..I am tired but happy….The fridge is full to the brim of surplus peonies!
These flowers are a favourite with almost every bride and customer and there is no wonder why. They are so soft and romantic yet have a real casualness in their beauty. An added bonus is the soft scent and reasonable vase life (proper care- lasting up to 7 days)
Some bouquet picks of mine using this stunning flower….
love these colours and the wedding…found here
stunning detail on this bouquet (silver blue looks great with soft pink peonies!) image source
and this wedding is peony perfection!
The colours can be traditional in white and blush pinks… to a more girly wedding with soft pinks and fushias and they even come in a fun and vibrant array of yellows, deep reds, , and who can forget the ridiculously gorgeous coral and salmon colours I have seen!
A simple arrangement from Once Wed
and now for a wild standard arrangement I love!
These highly sought after flowers and in Canada are available from March through August, with peak season being April, May and June. Many white varieties bloom early in the season. In Australia we are not so lucky… from all information I can get so far, these beauties are available for a a limited time between late october and mid january!
Oh and one more thing…we used these flowers for bridesmaids last year. Rather than carrying a bouquet, we made a huge dress corsage using a single peony…stunning!
