My sister knows about my preference for succulents over flowers very well. However she offered me two bunches of peonies this weekend! We very rarely have flowers at home, except fresh ones from our garden sometimes, so I was a little surprised. But she bought these for a special reason: the same peonies were used in her brides bouquet a few weeks ago.
My friend Sonja from FunkyBird Firenze (in Florence, Italy) recently used white/pink peonies in a brides bouquet as well. I love it how she made all these very different flower arrangements for the dining tables with the same kinds of flowers in them. So clever & shabby chic!
Look at that wrapping paper! I love it almost as much as the flowers: my sister called it polkadotted joelix.com paper :o)
