My local Whole Foods has peonies right. now. I asked WHY on earth they would have them IN DECEMBER (For $2.5 a stem) and she said they get drop shipments of them all.the.time.
I could order some right now if I wanted. I guess they are grown locally? I have no idea-but I just had to share.
Just to prove I’m not crazy, here are some next to poinsettas. They also showed me a box they were unwrapping full of them. I didn’t think to snap a picture.

Oooo lovely! I adore peonies- I’m having white ones incoporated into my bouquet.

@MissFireFlower: Oh man. I am making my own flowers (felt) and am so far pleased with them. However, I’ve been getting some tinges of flower regret lately, and you are not helping me!!
Happily, we are waaay under on the flower budget, and based on those prices I can still go the real flower route! There’s even a Whole Foods right close to the venue. I only have my Maid/Matron of Honor and me to worry about in terms of bouquets, and I think even if I got peonies us girls, I can still get away with artificial for the bouts and corsages. Decisions decisions decisions…
