Serve guests a double-whammy of gorgeous with this lovely idea...
Is there any bloom prettier than the peony? The blowsy flower is the perfect match for a luxe summer celebration and, available in a whole rainbow of shades, there are varieties to match every colourscheme.
The pretty peony is the perfect pick for a statement reception decoration. Best of all, it won't cost you a fortune: a handful of peonies creatively arranged on a table will be far cheaper than a more formal, constructed tablecentre.
Instead, use clever mirrored surfaces to give an instant illusion of more, and let the pretty petals pack a powerful punch all of their own.
Our favourite pairing of all? Pairing peonies with colour-match cocktails; if you're planning on a drinks table at your reception, pick drinks in colours that match the flowers, and let the peonies do the talking.
