‘Tis the season!

For peonies of course!

Those of you that know me, {or follow me on Instagram} know that I am obsessed with peonies. Obsessed. Something about these gorgeous blooms inspire, excite and uplift me every single time. During this season, my house overflows with fresh peonies each week, and the sweet aroma sends me back to my wedding day. This is undoubtedly my favorite time of year.

In Chicago, though some peonies start to become available in winter, ┬áthe price tags are high and the limited availability and quality often leaves a bit to be desired. May and June are the best months for the best and most voluminous, (magical!) peonies in a range of amazing colors and varieties. And while never a steal, the prices are most optimal at this time as well. {Brides take note– if you have your heart set on peonies, be sure to choose your wedding date accordingly!}

I love a huge bunch of peonies for a full and lush look. These arrangements are so romantic and make such a statement. That said, they are equally as beautiful as a stand alone in a bud vase– using a bunch is a great way to dress up your tablescapes, and one is just enough for powder rooms, vanities and more.

Enjoy the season! It will be over before we know it! xo
