We’re such suckers for peonies.. In all of their fluffy fullness, they’re just the perfect spring/summertime wedding flower.  And get this: we made this white peony bridal bouquet for under $20!  Here’s how:

Materials: 5 Stems of Peonies (purchased at Whole Foods, 12.99 per pk) • Dusty Miller (purchased at local garden center) • Floral Tape • Ribbon • 2 Pearl Pins • Scissors

Step One. Crisscross two stems of peonies and add two stems of dusty miller. Give the stems a turn and add two more stems of peonies and dusty miller..give the stems one last turn and add the last peony. Make any adjustments as needed.

Step Two. Hold the bouquet in front of a mirror to see if you are happy with the look and feel of your design.

Step Three. Wrap the stems with floral tape, then trim the bottoms of the stems to the desired length

Step Four. Wrap your choice of ribbon around the stems and secure the ribbon in place with one pearl pin in the back and one in the front of the handle.

There you have it…a pretty white peony bouquet for under $20.00!
