Single Stem Peonies for Bridesmaid Bouquets

It's been a very hectic couple of weeks working on several orders and projects. Last week I finished an order for 5 six inch single bloom ivory peonies for a client back East. She wanted each of her bridesmaids to carry one on her wedding day. The dresses the bridesmaids will be wearing are French blue but we went with Navy blue since I couldn't get her an exact match on the ribbon.
There's something so lovely about one single bloom that has so much character! I also played around with the assembly of the petals which I think I like better than previous peonies I've made. It's always a learning process. One thing I've learned is that I can't be afraid to experiment!
