Monday, Monday. Are you ready for another week? It seems a good idea to start it off with something pretty, so here are a few photos from last week's peony class at The London Plane.
The well-lit space was filled near to bursting with the loveliest blooms...
Katherine and Brita from The London Plane had so many tips and tricks to share about floral arranging, while Geraldine from Northfield Farm -- where the peonies were sourced from -- supplied seemingly endless information about the beautiful flowers.
With peonies aplenty, and masses of complementary blossoms and greens to pair with them, off to work we went... fortified with a bit of wine and some new floral shears that were ours to keep.
At the end of the evening, a stunning array of bouquets surrounded us, each one as unique as the person who styled it.
Here's mine, happy at home with a pair of marble Foo Dogs..
Did you know that peonies originated in the far East? The Chinese introduced them to Japan and the Chinese word for peony translates to "beautiful."
If you live in the Seattle area - or are planning a visit - I can't recommend a class at The London Plane enough. Such a beautiful way to spend an evening.
And here's to a new week! Hope yours is full of exquisitely lovely things! XO
