Peonies are the darling flowers of springtime. Their season is short and when they’re in bloom, people go crazy–myself included. I was married in Sayulita, Mexico, where peonies are scarce; being that it was my big day and that they are my favorite flower, I had the florist import them from Columbia. (I have no regrets; I loved my flowers.) But even I, a diehard peony lover, grow tired of the same old five peonies in a vase. I decided to build my own bouquet to complement this beautiful flower. My personal mix is listed below (all bought at Sprout Home, here in Chicago):
PS. If you can get your mitts on the elusive light pink peony, grab it and run! It’s white with a hint of pale pink–much more delicate than the bubblegum pink peonies you see everywhere.
