So, I've been wanting to experiment with my peonies for quite some time and after my dear friend's son gave me a beautiful full bloom peony it gave me some incentive to finally try it.

My client, Elisa contacted me and asked me if I could create her bridal party's bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and eventually centerpieces. She was inspired by the bouquet I did for my other client Trang a while back, but we modified it slightly.

They turned out bigger than I had planned, but I think they came out supe[...]
