As soon as I can get my hands on a bunch of chinese lantern plants, I know that Fall has arrived! The delicacy of their puffed petals combined with the showy vibrance of their pumpkin-orange always makes me happy! I often just stick a bunch in a vase to dry, but this week I decided to include them in a bouquet.
I went for something fun and showy, inspired by the Fall carnival we always used to have back home in September. The orange chinese lanterns made me think of the blinking, circular lights that adorned the carnival rides. The pink peonies are the cotton candy I always had to have (of course)! I hope you enjoy this happy bouquet as much as I enjoyed making it!
