Creative with Flowers - # 24 - Pink Hydrangea I


This week on Creative with Flowers - I'm featuring some stunning pink and purply blue Hydrangea. They will not be available for much longer - so get some while you can.


This series of blog posts - called 'Creative with Flowers' - are about using flowers in creative ways. It could be about how the flowers are combined - maybe in a little bit of an unusual way. It might be the choice of vase - maybe not a vase at all but a container that could be anything from jugs, bottles, jars, tins or teapots - vintage or new it doesn't matter. 

As always my arrangements will be quick and easy - and there will always be lots and lots of colour!



The flower heads are huge - they should be firm to the touch - NOT spongy. Firmness is a sign of freshness! 

I have only four stems - but that is more than enough and again I'm using a large clear glass pickling jar.

Also make sure you recut the stems when you get them home. Hydrangeas need a lot of water to stay fresh. 



I have used a dotty tablecloth with an abstract pattern adding to that two different napkins both with dusty pink patterns. 

Another interesting contrast is the two vintage bowls and silverplated serving spoons and the 1970's flower pot with hand painted stripes and lines. 


selection of old and new makes an interesting and contrasting mixture. 

I love playing with different sizes and putting a mini vase with just a few single flowers next to the big container makes a surprising contrast. 


Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous and floral Wednesday!

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer'. I will be back later in the week. Hope to see you then.
