Pronounced pee-oh-nee. Peony season is the best season. Peony season is May-June, though you can sometimes get them other times of the year. People wait all year for peony season. Some people even plan their wedding around the short season. If you’re having an event during prime peony season you’ll definitely want peony centerpieces!

Peony centerpieces are spectacularly lush and beautiful. Opt for simplicity and do all peonies. Or mix them with other pretty blooms like hydrangeas, orchids and dahlias. Cylinder or cube vases are best for centerpieces as they do not obstruct the view for talking at the table. Decorate the inside of the vase with curly willow and gemstones.

We bring in peonies from all over. Some come from Holland. Others come from North Carolina. In June we even get super local peonies from New Jersey, New Hampshire and even Massachusetts grown! During peony season we always have light pink peonies. We also carry hot pink peonies, dark pink peonies and white peonies. If you’re looking for a certain shade of peonies like coral peonies or burgundy peonies we can typically always order for you. A lot of times we are able to get next day from our suppliers.

Having an event in July or August and just missing peony season? A beautiful, Locally grown pink and white peonies accented with bluporum and hot pink gem stonesseasonal July-August flower is the dahlia. During these summer months we tend to bring in locally grown dahlias in all different colors. Dahlias look great in a vibrant, mixed flower summer arrangement. Mix dahlias with green hydrangeas, locally grown sunflowers and free spirit roses.

Find some samples below of peony centerpieces we created for a party. These feature locally grown pink and white peonies. This party did a mix of peonies by themselves and peonies mixed with other flowers. They had a mix of cylinder, cube and rectangular vases. This gave the party nice variation.
