Hey everyone!

I was asked to do the centerpieces for a friends' wedding, she had no clue what she wanted!  I decided she should do Hydrangeas, and something simple, yet elegant, so these are what I came up with, and she is in love with them!!!  Kiss  I made 33 centerpieces, and it took me 4-6 hours over the course of a couple of days.

As stated in the topic, her colors are blue (all different shades) along with white and silver.  She has two tablecloths, a navy blue and then a smaller silver one on top of that, so I think the centerpieces will be stunning, I'll post pics of them on the table when the wedding takes place!   Wink










Thanks for looking and have a great day!  Cheesy

Where did you get the hydrangeas and vases? I'm more wondering what size the vases are, because they look great with those flowers. Are the hydrangeas (I'm assuming they are silk) pretty realistic up close? I'm debating between fake hydrangeas or live daisies, and these are perfect. Awesome job:)

I got all of the Hydrangeas at Michael's.  There are different color combinations throughout all the vases, I used about 5 different Hydrangeas total.  The brands were: Mediterranean Garden (seasonal), Silk Garden Shop and Classic Collection (also seasonal).  They all look pretty realistic up close and have a lot of depth in color.  I think that the Mediterranean Garden stems were slightly prettier than the rest.

The vases are also from Michael's and are probably about 5-6 inches tall.  The arrangements aren't that tall because I want people to be able to see each other across the table.  They were only 3.79 each!!!

Thanks so much!  Cheesy
