Peony Perfection

While I have an appreciation for all flowers, in my opinion there is none more perfect than the peony.  Starting as a tiny little ball (smaller than a golf ball) peonies mature into stunning blooms often in excess of 5 or 6 inches in diameter.  Their array of gorgeous hues combined with an undeniably sweet scent make this romantic flower a top pick amongst brides and women in general (hint, hint, gents!).  Always a crowd pleaser, they are a great addition to any interior space and promise to make a statement in even the simplest vase.  In LA, we don’t typically have peonies past the second week of July, so in honor of a great season (or in my sadness of them going out of season), I picked up a bunch in my favorite color.

Cut the stems short and arrange a few of them in a simple glass or silver julip vase.

Don’t worry about keeping the color uniform. Peonies are prettiest when natural and mixed with various shades.

  1. Love the color choice for the peonies! Do you know of a good place to buy silver julip vases…for a reasonable price? I know those can get pricey and I’m a bargain shopper!
