Peonies & Ballroom Chairs


I wait all year long for my beloved peonies to arrive at Trader Joe's.


This morning there was a bounty from which to choose!




I couldn't get home fast enough to arrange them. 




They reminded me of Eddie's post on the gorgeous table setting he and Jaithan created for A Date with a Plate...





... which got me thinking of the cache of Chiavari Ballroom chairs I scored a few months ago with the idea of painting them in fun bright colors like these hot pink ones.




So... if any of you local readers or bloggers out there are equally smitten with these ballroom beauties let me know as I have over 30 of them available to purchase as is, which is currently classic gold, or I can arrange to have them painted any color you choose.





Email me for details.

Hmmm..I may have to send you an e-mail about this one! Depending on the use, I like them in gold or a fun bright color!

Those chairs are the best - and I'm loving them in the hot pink or the green. I wish I had the space... : )

I almost fell over when I read Eddie's post, its just so beautiful! Your flowers are so perfect in that sweet numbered pail I can't take it! Ballroom chairs will forever remind me of my wedding, and that is a good thing!

Don't even mention peonies to me! I love them for their extravagant overe-exuberance but they will NOT grow down here. I love the chairs, too!

Wasn't his table just genius?! I, too, was smitten with those hot pink chairs. If only I lived closer to you....!

Those peonies are great. We don't get many blooms and sadly the bushes only bloom once. No Trader Joe's here either.

Now for those chairs are you sure you don't need them for your own outdoor garden party?

Your peonie arrangement is so sweet and soft....would love to score some chairs but, geography does not allow this! Fabulous post!!
