Peonies and garden roses…Oh MY!!! How I love them both!!
You really cannot go wrong with these luscious blooms, full and bold yet feminine and pretty!!
Depending on Season and availability both flowers will create a stunning look for bridal bouquets, bridesmaid’s flowers. Let’s be serious; they are perfect for any floral design for ceremony displays and reception flower decor.
Choose your style: Are you a naturalist at heart? A purist? Or dream of a little glitz?
You will most likely fall into one of these design styles: vintage, Hollywood glam, modern, simple or English garden.
Once your style is chosen these flowers are flexible and really PEREFCT because you can dress them up with either garden accents, crystals, rhinestones or designed simply.
Peonies are a bit more delicate.. As all late spring blooms are! In New Jersey and Philadelphia their time to shine is Early June!! While you can get these flowers in spurts at certain times of the year from Israel and Holland the price will increase. Supply and demand during these off seasons will make them range from $15.00 – $30.00 per stem. So… If you are a late May or early June bride take advantage of the local gems that are typically priced around $8.00-$12.00 per stem. They are absolutely worth it!! They remind me of a perfect slice of cake…Delicious!!
Garden Roses: They are a bit sturdier in warmer conditions in contrast to their friend the Peony and can be found throughout most of the year. Their prime time is June thru October!! With and incredible petal count these beauties will give the same look as peonies. Also the upside to using garden roses is they come in beautiful colors – shades of Pink, Reds, bold Yellows, butter yellow, Blush and Ivory. Garden roses are grown mostly in California due to the perfect temperature inland of Southern California.
If you ever have had the chance to visit a garden rose grower… It’s absolutely stunning!!
