I've always been reticent about displaying artificial plants, as I adore fresh flowers and plants, which are always on prominent display throughout our home. That said, while browsing through Overstock, I came across their Mixed Peony wreath. At first glance the flowers appeared completely real. Ever the skeptic, I quickly decided this illusion was due more to a photographer's skill than product quality. Overstock has this maddening (magical?) way of luring you back to previously viewed items. (How do they do that?) So for weeks I kept returning to the Mixed Peony wreath, each time moved by their beauty, each time talking myself out of purchasing them. They were, after all, (shudder) FAKE (gasp). One day while searching for glass vases, I came across Overstock's "Mixed Silk Peony Arrangement with Glass Vase". Like its predecessor (the Mixed Peony wreath), these photos were absolutely spectacular. Intrigued, I did a quick search for "Mixed Peony" and discovered Overstock sold a host of matching pieces, each a visual delight. These arrangements seemed a perfect match to both the décor and color scheme of our family room. I was completely and totally hooked. In November, after weeks of looking, I tossed caution to the wind and purchased one of every Mixed Peony item Overstock offered. -Item #: 11765220 - Mixed Peony 24-inch Wreath- -Item #: 11765209 - Mixed Silk Peony Arrangement with Glass Vase- -Item #: 11765210 - Peony Silk Flower Centerpiece Arrangement- In January I purchased Overstock's newest edition Mixed Peony Bouquet - Item#: 12418632 - Silk Peony Flower Arrangement- I have not regretted any of my Mixed Peony purchases. The flowers are amazingly lifelike and stunningly beautiful. The colors are vivid and rich. Interestingly, these arrangements are so real looking that they actually compliment the live plants and flowers in the house. Any and all of these items are delightful and wonderfully wise investments. So buy one already! What are you waiting for?!
The multi colored peonies sit in a substantial oblong glass vase. The peonies range in colors from off white to pink, peach, light tangerine, aubergine with an assortment of green hydrangea and burgundy berries intertwined throughout. My very first house visitor said "I really love your flowers" nevery suspecting they were fake sitting on the coffee table at an angle. So beautiful that I purchased the matching 2.5 ft centerpiece for the dining room for that peony spring look.
The first order came with a broken vase. The return was effortless, i had never had to return anything from overstock before.
The second arrangement came with an extremely dirty vase, not broken. The flowers were dull and dusty looking. The flowers were set into the vase off to the side, arranging them evenly would have been impossible. Sending them back. I would not take a risk w this arrangement.
I bought this arrangement along with the matching wreath and centerpiece for my dining room, and I love all three! They coordinate beautifully and add a touch of elegance and charm to the room. The colors are gorgeous, the flowers very lifelike--my husband thought they were real!. The vase is very narrow (which is difficult to determine from the photo) so this may impact how one wishes to display it. As one reviewer stated the flowers are all "sticking straight up" in the box and must be arranged by the buyer, but this was neither difficult nor time-consuming to do. I still "fiddle" with it from time to time, changing it around a bit. All in all, I love this product and was pleased to find it on this site for such a good price compared to other sites. I would buy it again without reservation.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? The vase is very narrow which is difficult to determine from the photo, and the buyer does need to arrange the flowers as they arrive sticking straight up and must be "bent" into an arrangment
The piece needed quite a bit of "fluffing" out of the box. A couple of pieces of hydrangea had come off. The piece isn't as full as I expected, but I was able to arrange it to disguise some of the holes - howeverI am contemplating adding some additional flowers or greenery. I have had some compliments on it - people thought it was a real arrangement before looking at it closely. I like the colors of the arrangement, they compliment my decor nicely.
