Hydrangea Arrangement Ideas

Hydrangea Arrangement Ideas

The sweltering heat of summer hit our area early this year. It has been in the high 90’s and low 100’s for several days now which is normally August weather for us! Needless to say, my plants are struggling a bit in this heat. Thankfully all of my hydrangeas are fairing well so I figured I’d better capture their beauty and bring some inside to enjoy! Today I’m sharing a few Hydrangea Arrangement Ideas that are gorgeous and easy to arrange. Hydrangeas Floral Arrangements

If you are following me on Instagram, then you already saw this pretty picture above of one of my hydrangea arrangement ideas using purple hydrangeas with chasteberry tree branches paired with glass floats and starfish. The shades of purple and blues look beautiful with silver like this sweet little galvanized pail.

The beauty of hydrangeas is that each blossom is HUGE! One single bloom can fill your entire vase!  The range of colors on one bush is also amazing. The colors can range from dark purple, hot pink, pale pink, lavender, blue and green! It’s a virtual calidescope of color.

A creamy white ceramic soup tureen can serve as a beautiful vessel for a hydrangea arrangement. Here I am using a combination of Endless Summer Hydrangeas and Lace Cap Hydrangeas. Placing mirrors behind your bouquet will not only reflect your beautiful flowers but will also give the illusion of even more flowers!

To change up the same arrangement, take the mirror that was behind the flowers and place it under the soup tureen. Add artwork in coordinating colors in place of the mirror. This geometric art you see behind is one of my daughter’s creations.

A quick and easy coastal centerpiece is to fill a vase full of clean shells, add some sisal rope and a few fluffy hydangeas.  Click HERE to get all the details on how to make this rope centerpiece and votives.Simple Summer Centerpiece

If you have a larger vessel, then try this beachy and creative arrangement. Fill the bottom with a bit of clean sand (pool sand or craft sand) and then add a few shells, a bit of water and then float a large hydrangea bloom in the center.

Need a small flower arrangement for a bedside table or bathroom? Pour a little bit of water into a clean whelk shell and insert a small hydrangea bloom inside of it! I love the beachy look of this arrangement.

  1. […] Most of the hydrangeas in the garden are starting to dry, so I’ve been frantically clipping blooms to prepare for indoor drying. I love all their shades of soft greens and blues. The house has been filled with hydrangea arrangements! […]
