With their impressive blooms and sweet smelling fragrance, Peonies really can be one of the most beautiful flowers. Here are a couple of tips from our florists on how to get your peonies looking nothing other than perfect:
1. Peonies are best to buy when they are still in a bud so you can enjoy them throughout their entire flowering process. Although it can be tempting, avoid buying those that are already flowering as they will only last a couple of days.
2. Once home, cut their stems at an angle to allow more water uptake. Before placing into a vase of fresh water, be sure to remove any foliage that falls below the water line.
3. The temperature of the room has a direct effect on how quickly your peonies will open. A warmer room will help them to open faster. If you want your peonies to be in full bloom for a special occasion or event, placing them in warm water will also speed up this process even further.
4. Keep your peonies looking at their prime by refreshing the water and re-cutting the stems every few days.
Why not put these tips to use and order one of our Perfect Peony bouquets online now.

1. With it’s crimson colour and smooth, velvety texture, the Red Naomi Rose is often described as the perfect rose and is a symbol of love, passion and romance.
2. What’s not to love about Spray roses?! These miniature flowers look fabulous in bouquets, take our Luxurious Rose Knot for example.
3. Ooh la la! French O’Hara roses have a gorgeous fragrance and fluffy texture and their soft, bridal tones make them perfect for weddings. Take a look at our Scented Rose Knot, bursting with the most beautiful O’hara roses.
4. It’s the ruffled petals and silvery lilac and pink shades of the Secret Garden rose that put this rose in our top 5 – a luxurious and classic rose with a colourful twist.
5. We’re in love with peach centres and pink outer petals of Venezuela roses. Their two-tone colour and rounded shape give the flower an exotic and unique look.

We recently launched our prop hire service for events and weddings, making our large selection of beautiful and exclusive pieces available for hire. Over the next few months we will be publishing a series of blog posts to give you some ideas of how to achieve different looks using props, starting first with how to create an eclectic look:
1) Fill small unique vases or even vintage teapots with vibrant seasonal flowers, and display these together in clusters around your venue or as table centrepieces.
2) Use similar vases in different heights along the centre of your table, and you can also add tea lights and some coloured bottles to mix it up even more.
3) Match vintage pieces with contemporary crystal vases and candlesticks for a more chic eclectic look.
4) Use bud vases and bottles in clusters and fill them with different shades of flowers.
Click here to visit our props website to see what we have available for hire or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
