This month, to coincide with the upcoming Coronation of HRH King Charles III, we would like to celebrate all things British here at Peony Faux Flowers. At this time of year, it seems as if every day brings with it a new flower to enjoy both in the garden and in our homes. A love of seasonal, British flowers has also been reflected in the design of the official Coronation invitation which was released earlier this month. The beautiful hand drawn illustrations showcase so many of our favourite flowers and it has really inspired us to get creative this season. 

As well as creating a very special arrangement to celebrate The Coronation, we would also like to share with you some of our favourite stems and arrangements which really showcase the Best of British seasonal flowers. Hopefully we will also inspire you to create your very own centrepieces or floral displays using Peony Faux Flowers as part of your Coronation celebrations next month. 

A Very Special Arrangement

We have just released the most stunning arrangement which has been created to celebrate The Coronation of HRH King Charles III. Our Kensington vase has been filled with vibrant blue delphiniums, white real touch, Old English roses, pretty red wax flowers, achillea berries and an abundance of beautiful green foliage. This arrangement will make the most wonderful centrepiece in your home for The Coronation and beyond, but it is only available for a limited time so make sure you purchase yours asap!    

Celebrating British Flowers

If you have seen the gorgeous Coronation invitation, then you will know that it has the most wonderful border celebrating the best of British seasonal flowers. Featuring beautiful bluebells, daffodils, dog roses, lily of the valley, cornflowers, thistles and so much more, the design has inspired us to use our own faux versions to celebrate the upcoming Coronation. 

A perfect starting point for your own Coronation invitation inspired display might be to use our faux red, white or cream dog roses along with purple real touch thistles, blue cornflowers, rosemary or your favourite faux greenery in a tall vessel. Although with so many beautiful flowers to choose from, it might be hard to decide which ones to leave out!  

A Red, White and Blue Theme

Of course, the most patriotic of colour schemes to celebrate The Coronation is the classic red, white and blue of our Union Jack flag. We have showcased this scheme in our Coronation Arrangement and also our Peony Jubilee Faux Floral Arrangement which was created last year to celebrate our late Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.  

We also have so many fabulous individual stems in red, white and blue which are just perfect for creating your own floral displays. If you would like to keep to a seasonal theme, then you could start with the red of our camellia spray on a long stem, the vibrancy of red real touch parrot tulips, or the perennial summer favourite of the red hydrangea on a waterproof stem

For your blue flowers, we have the beautiful bright blue of the anemone and the cone headed hydrangea, or the pale blue of the blue astrantia or seeded foliage

To complete your patriotic colour scheme, we have the most wonderful white or cream stems to pick from. Some of our favourite stems at this time of year include the delicate white wisteria which will just cascade out of your chosen vessel; the stunning fully open bridal white peony and the very pretty white ranunculus stem complete with buds and leaves.     

A Table fit for Royalty

As part of The Coronation celebrations, you might be planning on hosting a lunch or street party for family and friends. Aside from organising delicious food and drink, don’t forget to decorate your table for this very special occasion!

For an easy, yet impactful way to decorate your table, choose from our wonderful collection of vase sets, which can be placed either individually or as a group of three. Our tall, white decanter vase set with pretty pink roses will make a wonderful addition to any table. Or for a lovely touch of spring colour, choose the bluebells and daffodils in a set of three vases

Our smaller arrangements are also the perfect height for using as a floral centrepiece to an afternoon tea or picnic table. You could opt for the delicate bluebells in our pristina vase or the wonderful rose, blossom and eucalyptus arrangement. Or, the more creative of you could choose to mix and match our smaller stems for a truly bespoke display. 

The Finishing Touches

We hope our ideas have given you plenty of inspiration for decorating your home for The Coronation. Whether you choose one of our pre-made arrangements or prefer to create your own using our range of stems, don’t forget that we have some very special offers on at the moment. All orders over £60 will receive a fabulous free gift (whilst stocks last) and until summer 2023, all of our stems are currently 3 for 2 as part of our mix and match stem offer. 

Finally, we would love to see your fabulous Coronation creations, so do remember to tag in @peony_faux_flowers when you’re sharing your posts to social media! However you choose to celebrate The Coronation, we hope you have a wonderful time and that the Great British weather is kind to us all!
