Easy Peony Floral Arrangements from Your Backyard



Peonies are in full bloom in my backyard and I’m yearning to bring some of the prettiness indoors.  This week I’ll be posting different easy ways to arrange your peonies with things that are easily on hand in your yard.

First up: a single peony in a teacup.  Super easy.

Gather your supplies:

  • Teacup
  • Scissors
  • 1 peony bloom
  • some small flowers or branches for filler


Trim your flowers and greens.


Arrange the greens into your cup.


Plop in your peony and enjoy! image

I’d love to see your pictures if you give this a try!  Post them on Instagram and tag me @shifting_roots.  No peonies?  Pin it for later!
