“It all started with my favorite flower—the peony,” says Senior Photo Stylist Buffy Hargett Miller. “I just love its vibrant pink color.” We took that ever-so-popular feminine hue and turned up the volume by including a range of different shades, from deep magenta to soft blush. To keep the setting fresh and not too frilly, we worked in pops of orange with the accent plates and serving bowls. “Having fun with color inspires me. Don’t be afraid to mix bright, bold shades of the same hue. It adds so much depth,” says Buffy.

Repurpose buttons to create place cards with glue, card stock, and sheer ribbon. Cut the paper into 2- by 1-inch rectangular strips, and attach pieces of ribbon with glue. Sew or glue a button onto each ribbon, and then place on a rolled napkin.

The Tablescape

Start with simple white dishes. Add a splash of color by topping them with patterned accent plates for a punch of pizzazz. Finish off the look with blush-toned glassware in various shapes, sizes, and styles. To keep the table setting from feeling too fussy, we chose understated yet elegant gold-rimmed stemless glasses and Champagne flutes.

An ombré arrangement is easy to create. Place a dampened block of florist foam into a vessel. Then, working in groups of three, insert white garden roses into one side of the florist foam. Next, place light pink roses and ranunculus

in the center. On the remaining side, add deep pink peonies. Fill in any gaps with greenery.
