Pink Peonies Table Setting

Taking a break from blogging about my Paris trip to share my pink peonies tablescape!

As you all know, I LOOOOOVE peonies.  They are my favorite flower.  I mean, I named my blog after them!


 When I saw them I knew instantly that they would look good with my black "Country Estate" Juliska.
I found this pink ombre ribbon at my favorite store in Southern California - Roger's Gardens.  Ironically it was the cheapest thing I've ever purchased there... $5 for a whole roll of ribbon!

To add some extra pops of pink, I brought over my favorite antique Staffordshire swans to the table.

Let's look closer at the peonies... you can almost smell them from here!  They had a nice scent.
 The peonies lasted for a week and then wilted.  Too bad!
 One last photo collage of my favorite table!
pink peonies table perfect for birthdays, bridal showers, or weddings!

    1. Oh thank you! When I saw the plates years ago I knew it was going to be my wedding China. I didn't register for both formal and informal sets of China... Instead I chose a nice middle of the road China.. They're very nice and can be dressed up and down... But they are dishwasher and microwave safe! I am a sucker fo Juliska, I can't help myself. Thanks for the compliments, the Paris posts continue tomorrow...

    1. The centerpiece vase is a tulipiere... Supposed to hold tulips but I think it holds peonies pretty well! Thanks for the feature!

  13. Angelina these look wonderful. I love peonies, and have Sarah Bernhardt growing but it only flowers 2-3 blooms each year. Love your table setting too. Lovely idea with the ribbons.

    1. Well 2-3 blooms are better than none! They don't grow out here as its too hot.
