I cannot think of a more perfect bloom for flower arrangements than that of the Hydrangea. They definitely have the *wow* factor, and seemingly last forever in a vase. This morning I went out to cut a few to make an Imprompu Bouquet.
It turned out so great that I decided to create a second arrangement to give to my neighbors. They have always been so kind, and after the birth of my baby girl this Spring they brought over such nice gifts.
After scrubbing out an old jam jar, I cut a strip of green scrapbook paper and then glued on a row of individual Hydrangea florets for extra decoration. I love the effect and will have to try more crafty projects like this in the future.
