Last but not least, we’ll be making a large country-inspired peony arrangement. This time around we’re going for a more unstructured look, so we get to pretty much skip the clean-your-greens step!
For this arrangement you will need:
- 3 peonies
- 5-7 daisies
- 1-3 lupins
- A small bunch flower like yarrow
- A small scale flower that is bushy
- 2-3 clippings from a bush or tree
- A country inspired container. Mine is an old enamel coffee pot from the farm. You could use a watering can, cream can, or really anything you can find that looks cool.
I confess, I got so wrapped up in making this one that I forgot to take a lot of step-by-step pictures!! Start by putting in your greenery and figuring out how tall your lupin (or other tall flower) needs to be.

Then fill in the blank spaces. Imagine a triangle with your lupin as the top point and the lower greenery as the bottom points. With that in mind, fill in the spaces within those imaginary lines with your daisies and small bunch flowers. Finish around the bottom with your bushier flower.
And voila! A beautiful arrangement for your table, doorway, or windowsill.
Thanks for following along during peony week. I hope you’ve had as much fun reading the posts as I’ve had making them. Confession time: I was originally going to rip out most of the peonies in my backyard–there’s eight bushes!! After this week, I will definitely be keeping them in to enjoy next year. I’m curious, did you have a favourite arrangement this week? Have a lovely weekend!
