Eliza + Don: A Pretty Pink Peony Wedding By Eli Turner
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Happy Monday, PW readers! It’s a little drizzly here in DC, but you know what they say about April showers. And since it is almost May, we thought we’d go ahead and fulfill the rest of that idiom with some pretty pink flowers! Eliza and Don’s Meridian House wedding was largely inspired by the lovely peony. “They really brought a smile to the bride’s face,” says Bash event coordinator Terri Eaves, “and most of the details were planned with them in mind.” Scroll through for highlights from their 1940’s-esque affair, all captured beautifully by Eli Turner Studios, then visit the full gallery for even more romantic details.

DIY Wednesday: Peaches ‘n Cream Floral Centerpiece
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself, Flowers

By: Chelsea Fuss

This sweet floral centerpiece is a great way to incorporate seasonal produce into your wedding!

Flower Recipe + Supplies:

2 Peaches

2 Large Bearded Irises

3 Stems of Chervil or Queen Anne’s Lace

1 Stem of Phlox

2 Stems of Dusty Miller

3 Peonies (2 budded and one in bloom)

3 Stems of Alchemilla

White Ceramic Bowl

If you want to adjust the recipe for other flowers: use one large focal flower, 7 stems of filler flowers, 2 pieces of fruit, 2 secondary flowers and 3 stems of greenery.


Step One. Remove leaves from the lower half of the stems.  Trim the stems short and set the excess aside.  

Step Two. Take two extra stems that you have from trimming the flowers short. Poke them into the peaches and place them aside.

Step Three. Fill your bowl with water and add the two irises and some alchemilla, phlox, and dusty miller. Arrange them together in your hand so they are all the same height, trimming if necessary.  Place them in one side the bowl, bunched together, making sure the blossoms rest on the edge of the bowl.

Step Four. Add the large peony and the peaches.

Step Five. Fill in with the chervil, greens, and filler flowers.

Step Six. Keep in a cool place until ready for use. Check the water periodically.

Peony Season: A Fresh Floral Inspiration Shoot
Posted by Kate. Filed under Color Palettes, Flowers, Wedding Inspiration

I’m up in the Pacific Northwest this spring and summer… and the peonies are blooming everywhere…it’s such a gorgeous time of year.   When I received this tabletop inspiration shoot, created by the fab Southern California team of Hello Studios, Lindye Galloway Events, and The Vines Leaf, naturally, I was in love.  The blend of pinks and peaches, full blooming peonies, and clean, chic design is almost too much loveliness to handle.  (Sigh.. ) Enjoy it!
