The house smells wonderful! With thanks to my sister, I have fragrant peonies in every room of the house. My sister Diane has the most amazing peony display each year, and I can't even tell you how many peony bushes she has. I'm guessing about 120? I was reading a magazine recently, and there was a sweet story about a woman who has a U-pick peony business. I'm going to encourage my sister to do that!
The table is set to celebrate! I used the same dishes and placemats that I used for Mother's Day and added peonies to the lions head soup bowls from Christmas Tree Shoppe.
Besides being so wonderfully fragrant, peonies are full of color. The cheerful mop heads make a stunning display on the table.
I love the white peonies as much as the pink ones. Since the peony season is so short, I picked another bunch of white peonies while they were in the soft "marshmallow" stage, and am storing them in the refrigerator for a few weeks until I want them to bloom. I love using peonies for a red, white and blue summer celebration.
The white also looks brilliant in a black and white vase.
Thank you for stopping by! I am joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish.
