Did you know the male is a peacock, and the female is called a peahen? In fact, the rich blues and greens in that extravagant tail is only seen in the male. He displays his fan formation of feathers with his sole purpose to attract a mate.
We love the idea of a colorful courtship dance and wanted to recreate the shape of a peacock for this autumn wedding arrangement. We infused deeper earth tones and were able to capture the powerful fanned feather effect with delphinium and pincushion flowers.
How do you feel about incorporating feathers into your arrangements?
