PEonie PeOnies

PEonies or is it Pe-O-onies?
Honestly, I can't quite figure out the correct way to pronounce the name of these beautiful flowers, but they are my favorite flowers. =P I love how they can brighten up a room, and the petals are so full and have so much texture.
Just check out these pretty colors...
I was lucky enough to attend a peonie foral arrangement class at Isari Flower Studio & Event Design, and the class was sooo much fun. Tam, the owner of Isari, is just plain awesome. She has an incredible eye for design, is such a great teacher, and is such a smart business woman (I greatly that a lot). Tam guided us through the best placement of each flower and corrected my mistakes was so helpful.  


I really, really love the classes at Isari Flower Studio & Event Design and I bet you will too.
Check out their class list here, the next class is on June 13

I've always found it hard to pick a favorite flower, but these would be pretty close to the top of my favorite list! They're beautiful! Such elegance and grace. Your arrangement turned out beautiful!

Oh my gosh, what a fun event!! I love your bouquet!! Peonies (PEonies in my experience) are one of my very favorites and I've just discovered that they are blooming in my garden (the perks of buying a house w/an established garden, surprises come up in the spring).

Nicole said...

Mmm I love peonies! And by the way, it's been awhile since I visited your blog (for some reason I wasn't a follower...weird). Anyway, I LOVE your layout right now!! It is so fitting! I need to splurge and have a profession do mine!

Lish said...

Ohmygosh. How pretty!! I love peonies too. They are the perfect flower. Not too formal, not too simple.

holtkamp said...

Ash said...

Stephanie said...

I emphasize the O because saying it the other way sounds borderline naughty and makes me giggle. :)

Allie said...

Lauryn said...

I've always emphasized the E, but however you say it they're still gorgeous! :)

Beth @ dot...in the city said...

I think it's PEonies :) and they're my favorite flower! We have white ones growing in our yard and I anticipate their sweet smell all winter long! Beautiful photos...loving the colors!

Anna said...

peonies are the best! Such a fun, pretty, springtime flower :) I love these photos!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

i've always said it PEonies. and i am well-versed in all things flower-related, so i would know.

(in reality, i know the names of aBOUT 4 flowers.)

lori said...

i would LOVE to take a flower arrangement class! peonies are my fave... i've heard it pronounced both ways, but i say it pe-O-nies, personally.

Melissa said...

I'm so jealous! PeOnies (how I pronounce it) are one of my favorite flowers. I love their texture! I would love to take a class there!

Those flowers are so gorgeous.
I'm glad you had a nice time in the class.

Martie* said...

Have I ever told you that peonies are my FAVORITE flowers?! Bet I did. Can I please come over and get some quality time with you, a bike ride on the beach and those flowers?! I am jealous. Oh so jealous :)

Anna Elder said...

I am sincerely jealous. I would love to take a class like that. I'd probably sell my house the next day to open a floral shop, but still it'd be fun! ;)

meghan said...

Oh my gosh. Whichever way it's pronounced...I love those flowers!! I would love to have them as my only wedding flower. I just wish they weren't so 'spensive.

Sam | ashore said...

I'm sure a million girls agree - but I just love peonies! Floral design classes are my favorite - and one of those little skills that bring happiness again and again.

katilda said...

my favorite tooooo! and i emphasize the E when i pronounce it. but i also vote for just mumbling it so no one knows the difference.
