Today we up the ante a little with a table centrepiece, featuring peonies and lilacs. (Special thanks to my mother-in-law Barb for letting me grab some lilacs from her backyard!) Arrangements for tables should be lower, so grab a short container and lets get started!
You will need:
- a short container
- florist foam (optional)
- greenery from your peonies
- 8 or so peonies
- 8 or so sprigs of lilac
Lilac season is basically done here in Saskatoon, so it was tricky to find decent blooms. Try to find ones that have just opened.
Once you trim everything, start by assembling greenery first, then lilacs, then peonies.
Make a great meal and start a conversation!
Post a pic in the comments if you give this a try! Next up is a bridal bouquet, as long as my pink peonies co-operate.
