I received the most beautiful peonies for Mother’s Day from my friends at Winston Flowers — the bouquet was breathtaking and took on a life of it’s own as the flowers opened up over the course of the week. They started off in a rich, deep coral toned hue and blossomed into the most cheerful, soft pink and orangey tones. Every single morning they looked a little bit different, and after several days they had opened up to about the size of a salad plate. I couldn’t let the chance to use these beauties in a tablescape pass me by so I pulled together a few pieces from my pantry for a preppy and festive party table.I layered a striped linen tablecloth with our everyday white plates and my favorite blue block print napkins. To give it a festive flare, I used some of my favorite inexpensive from Target — gold flatware and sturdy glass cocktail flutes. Just a few simple pieces are all you need when the flowers look that amazing. I clustered the peonies in small bud vases and low glass jars down the center of the table to let them shine. A perfect celebration of peonies at their peak!
