After much thought, we decided that each and every Friday, we will provide our readers with a flower choice, shown in different forms on a wedding day. For our first, Flower Friday we will get creative with peonies! These beautiful flowers happen to be my absolute favorite! These beauties are great at adding depth to a bouquet or centerpiece, they add great dimension, am immense amount of color, and did I mention how gorgeous they are? Peonies have become an extremely popular choice amongst brides in the past few years because of their modern, chic, yet simple and delicate appeal. Peonies are great when pairing with other flowers such as tulips, daises, baby’s breath, hydrangeas, delphiniums, roses, carnations, dahlias (this is my favorite pair) and succulents. Peonies come in various colors including, fuchsia, pastel pink, ivory, lavender, coral, peach, orange, and red. What I love about these gorgeous flowers most is that you can create a beautiful arrangement with just peonies or with an arrangement of multiple flowers.
Here are some ways to incorporate these beauties on your big day:
As full bouquets!
As a stand alone centerpiece!
As an escort card table arrangement!
As a bridesmaid corsage! (Love this idea–SO different and unique from the standard bouquet)
As a place setting!
As a cake topper in sugar flowers!
As fresh flowers on the cake!
…0r as fresh flowers IN the cake!
Happy First Peony Friday,
