One of the marvelous aspects of peonies is that you can use one peony, or multiple peonies to create an aesthetically pleasing look. Whether as centerpieces or name cards, peonies are a type of flower that will not let you down; they will look charming as one, or in a bunch.
Brace yourselves, Divas, because Peonies are back in season! Fill your home, event, and just life in general, with beautiful, colorful peonies! Ranging from white, to pale pinks, to bright purples, to even bright reds, these flowers are crowd pleasers for any event. It is no wonder The Knot ranked them #6 in top 10 wedding flowers: these flowers look gorgeous as a bouquet, or on their own. At Divine Diva Events, we are obsessed with them, which is why we dedicated a whole blog to them.
The texture, softness and color of these beautiful flowers were even a source of inspiration for these exquisite wedding cakes! Flour and Flourish Modern Cake Designs sculpted each peony on this cake to have 25 petals, and adapted the natural, ruffled texture of peonies throughout the entire cake to create a beautiful elegant design for the bride and groom's.

The Fondant Flinger took a different approach, and kept the focus on one central peony in the middle of this three-tier wedding cake, using edible pearls for extra charm. For more photos of this cake design, click here!
So whether you're thinking of using one peony or multiple peonies, there is no doubt that these flowers will look stunning! Just look at the way they bloom!
