Set for two..

Does anyone else just love when peonies are in bloom?! I used some of the glass bottles I've started to collect and a few handpicked peonies to create a simple but elegant centerpiece for our table.With the flower centerpiece I figured it was a good time to pull out my feminine china which has some pretty pink flowers of it's own.


I'm linking up to Between Naps on the Porch - Tablescape Thursday, where I am  constantly amazed by the beautiful tablescapes. There are so many creative people, including the host, that really inspire and motivate me!

Oh, I do love peonies, Amy. Yours are beautiful and look great in those bottles. By the way, is that a Susan Branch card with the cupcakes by chance? She's one of my all time favorite artists! Sincerely, Susan

Very pretty, I love that you put a single stem in each bottle!

Mimi said...

Lovely table, Amy. The peonies are just gorgeous this year, but all the rain sure is beating them, mine have their little heads hanging almost to the ground. And the scent is so intoxicating!

Johanna said...

Amy, I love peonies also. The have for me a light oriental touch. They are with the vibrant purple color the perfect combination to your china. Very colorful and impressive tablescape.
Greetings, Johanna

That's really beautiful, Amy. Your table looks so welcoming with the peonies. I do love them but I think yours are much more lush than we have here in Minnesota. And I adore your feminine china!
