Mythical Transformation: The Origin of the Peony Flower
The captivating peony flower bears a name rooted in ancient mythology. Legend has it that the flower’s name is derived from Paeonia, a beguiling nymph who caught the eye of none other than Apollo, the god of many talents.
As the story goes, Paeonia found herself in Apollo’s gaze, and their interaction was observed by the goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite. Overwhelmed by a sudden rush of shyness, Paeonia blushed a deep shade of red in the presence of Aphrodite. This moment of embarrassment sparked a transformative event orchestrated by Aphrodite herself.
In response to Paeonia’s bashful blush, Aphrodite chose to honour the nymph’s fleeting moment of vulnerability by turning her into a stunning flower. And thus, the radiant peony was born, capturing the essence of Paeonia’s rosy complexion and the magic of that moment.
The Peony bespoke, handmade flower girl dress is also perfect as a first holy communion dress and comes in ivory or white with an 8 layered skirt and satin ribbon sash. The bodice is made of a beautiful high quality pure silk or white satin that people will be sure to comment on.
