DIY - PEONY CENTERPIECE
Hello Lovelies...thanks for stopping by the cafe....I've got a quick and easy and totally cute DIY for you today...now I designed this little number with peonies, but you can totally use any fluffy or big bloom flower you desire.  This floral centerpiece is perfect for your wedding reception tables and also perfect to have in your home...have fun with it y'all and capturing all the beauty of this pink perfection...my girl Tori of of Marvelous Things Photography....I ADORE Tori, she's an AMAZING photographer and such a great friend....let's check out all the pretty images...Enjoy!!

pink peonies

Ingredients:

10 stems of peonies (I got these from Whole Foods, $12.99 a pack and I used 2 packs)
Vessel (I used a mercury container.  Peonies look so lovely in them and you don’t have to use any filler)
2 bud vases (I also used mercury bud vases)
Floral Adhesive Tape
Scissors

Step #1:  Using the floral tape, make a grid on top of the vessel that you will be using.  The grid will hold the flowers in place.

Now it's time to design!!



Step 2: : Depending on the type of vessel that you are using, cut the stems so that when you place them in the vessel, the top of the peony will rest on right above the grid. You want to make a “fluffy cluster” with the peonies




Step 3: Keep adding the peony stems until you get the desired look and feel.  I used 6-7 peonies per arrangement and make sure the peonies are fully opened.  They will normally pop open within a day, I purchased these the day before the shoot.




And there you have it!!....and I added a single bloom to each bud vase to complete the look!


Now how simple and easy is this...for all my DIY Brides...you can totally do this!!  You can also see this DIY project over at Project Wedding....have a wonderful day guys....xoxoxo
