Peonies are so delicately beautiful. When the first batch arrive from Holland in early spring my heart palpitates. The fragrance, the softness of tissue like petals, they have a certain romantic feel to them.
For this arrangement (which I made for myself :) I paired them with a soft peachy pink carnation. Makes me happy.

Anthuriums (the lovely heart shaped flower) are a tropical flower with a long vase life (15 to 30days). I have personally kept anthuriums for up to 6-7 weeks but it depends on the variety. Mini and small anthuriums tend to have a shorter vase life. Like all tropical flowers they love humidity and will appreciate regular mist of water. Anthuriums are sensitive to cold and are not stored in the cooler. Any temperature below 15C will blacken the flower.

In this arrangement we have the pink anthuriums (variety unknown) pink hydrangeas, white peonies, "Caroline Tenson" white lilies and alliums.
