{fashioned florals} pomegranates and peonies…



As I stumbled across this strawberry galette recipe from Martha Stewart, I didn’t even notice that strawberries are merely a memory of summer…instead, I was struck by the stunning red and green palette. Our current season has some equally beautiful florals and fruits in the same rose-red colorings, and that is exactly what I kept in mind when creating this arrangement. From the flower market I bought some poppies, lemon geranium, lamb’s ear, and the pièce de résistance—those red tree peonies! At home I nabbed the last of the pomegranates off of our tree, some passion vine, and a touch of burgundy coleus. I kept things low and overflowing in a brass bowl, and even made use of some poppies centers sans leaves for a quirky touch. A cheerful little bowl of color to start us into the winter season! — Liz

  1. What a gorgeous idea! Pomegranates always remind me of Granada, Spain, where I studied abroad and later got engaged…they have a special meaning for me and I love having them around. What a great display!
