Floral Love: Hydrangeas

We’ve got SO much goodness for you today! This is a continuation of our Floral series; check out our past posts on roses, peonies and tulips. When bunched together, these gloriously colored flowers that are hydrangeas are luscious and full but maintain a light-as-air appearance perfect for adding to bulk to bouquets, floral arrangements or simply anywhere in need of a flourish. Some great examples of hydrangea magic are below, from the floral-stuffed wedding cake, to the hydrangea hedge spilling to the floor, to the gorgeous slice of floral cake with exquisite presentation. Quick facts about the flower: 100: number of species of hydrangeas. White, blue, red, green, pink and purple: hydrangea colors, which depend highly on the acidity of the flower’s soil. It’s a great filler option for bouquets and arrangements. Hydrangeas are scentless. Enjoy the inspiration!   Credits: 1 Yolande Marx Photography / Bouquet by Bunches @ Home […]
