SOME LIKE IT HOT – Pink Peonies, White Spray Carnations and Smoke Bush Arrangement

After living through a year that has lasted for, at the very least, four decades, watch now how we whip through to Christmas in a heartbeat. With holiday plans and long awaited catch ups taking on extra significance this year, planning mode is about to go into o v e r d r i v e.

As much as we’re ready to say Bye, Felicia to 2020, the uncertainty of the last year has shown us that it’s more important than ever to stop and smell the flowers.  

Nothing reminds you to be in the moment like the peony! Ephemeral, beautiful beyond any other flower (a big call but we stand by it), and gone in a flash. The short local season is in swing for just 3-4 weeks every year! And with beauty THAT fleeting, it’s worth stopping to appreciate it.

This week’s burgundy and hot pink hued box is a treat, with hot pink peonies offset by moody smokebush and tiny bright spray carnations. Give everything a good trim and time to rehydrate, arrange simply and enjoy!



Here’s what you’ll need.

  • 3-7 stems of fluffy flowers like peonies

  • 2-5 stems of white spray carnations

  • 2-4 stems of smoke bush

  • sharp scissors or flower shears and a clean glass vase
