Peonies, My New Obsession

It's true. I'm in love. With peonies.

They are such beautiful flowers. Romantic, soft, full--what more could a girl want? What's more, the white peonies would work beautifully with the Carriage House decor, and lighten it up beautifully. This is a strong consideration.

What's funny is that I remember a certain super stealth mission a year and a half ago, whereby I, along with two other ladies who shall remain nameless, snatched peonies from local hillsides in Cumberland, Maryland for a certain someone's wedding whom shall also remain nameless. (ahem... Danielle).

And I am reminded of why one would snatch these in the wee hours: they are simply beautiful.

Now, the question is, what other colors, if any, to pair them with?

Alice needs to brainstorm... They would, now that I'm thinking of it, looking so charming and rustic tied together with a bit of twine (as shown in the picture above) and placed in clear glass jars. Love it. More to follow...

I love peonies too! But super stealth peony liberation missions will not be possible in Virginia in October. How unfortunate because that was one of my favorite wedding moments.
