Lovely Peonies and Roses

Lovely Peonies and Roses


Today I’m sharing the floral design I created on my living room mantel.  I love how layering creates a full elegant look.  I started with a rose hip garland that I’ve used before and added beautiful peonies and roses.  Perfect for a pretty summer display that can be easily changed to an autumn display.

I centered a topiary first then built the florals around it.  I wanted the garland to cascade in the middle of the mantel so that the mantel shelf would appear deeper than it is.

Pretty shades of peach and pink add a perfect amount of color to the white peony flowers.  They complement the peach tone drapery in the room.

I’m such a floral lover.   Peony and roses are one of my all time favorites.  They are so easily worked into a design and give a lovely romantic look to anything.  They make you feel so welcomed and can certainly lift you up when you are feeling down.  I feel they are one of God’s most perfect flowers.

On the coffee table in the room sits a rustic lantern.  I placed a rose hip wreath around the lantern along with more of the peonies and roses used on the fireplace mantel.  I wanted to match the look of the mantel on the table to create continuity in my design.

With autumn just around the corner, I can easily take out the topiary and some of the peonies while leaving the roses and adding some small white pumpkins to the floral display.
