Do-It-Yourself Hydrangea Centerpiece + Bouquet Tutorial
Posted on 21 March 2017
Hydrangeas boast hundreds of tiny delicate petals that add amazing texture to any bouquet and have become the flower of preference for delicate occasions such as weddings and baby showers.
Today we show you how to make an easy Hydrangea centerpiece using two stems of white natural Hydrangeas and green Ruscus in each bouquet. We recommend doubling the amount of stems for larger centerpieces or using Jumbo Hydrangeas. Here we use the classic white Hydrangea but feel free to explore our wide variety of flowers which come in dozens of natural and tinted colors.
What You’ll Need Per Bouquet:
Step 1: Hydrate your flowers
Cut your stem tips diagonally and place in a container of fresh water to hydrate for 2-3 hours prior to arranging. If your Hydrangeas are wilted- don’t fret!
Follow these steps to revive thirsty hydrangeas.
Step 2: Prepare your flowers and greens
Removing leaves is a great trick for ensuring petals get the most hydration possible. Leaves tend to absorb a large amount of moisture that should be going to the petals of the flower instead.
Step 3: Arrange the Hydrangeas and Ruscus
Step 4: Add the Lily Grass
Gently add the Lilly Grass stems looping them around the base of the bouquet. This gives your centerpiece or bouquet a professional touch. Secure with a small piece of floral tape.
