Hydrangeas are, without a doubt, my favorite flower. I can never get enough of this quintessential Southern garden flower. My sister in Athens, Ga, has raised gorgeous hydrangeas for years now. She recently shared some pictures of her beautiful Endless Summer blooms.
This hydrangea is definitely on my garden wish list. The pristine white blooms of her Incrediball hydrangeas are unbelievable! The Incrediballs were marketed several years ago as an improvement over the popular Annabelle.
Pictured below are glorious hydrangea beds photographed near Tupelo, Mississippi, at the Covenant Hospice House. They truly were worth stopping for!
With the abundant supply of hydrangeas, a quick summer tablescape is easy and rewarding to do.
Hydrangeas are best cut early in the morning, and conditioned in a bucket of warm water for a few hours before arranging.
These Endless Summer hydrangeas were cut in my yard, and placed in a classic garden urn.
However, one of my favorite pairings is silver or pewter containers with blue hydrangeas. Gather assorted trays, vases, and containers. You may even have a few vintage or family pieces to use. I added wet floral foam to the silver urn to stabilize the stems, but the others did not require it. I scattered some of the gorgeous foliage on the tray. Another option is to add votives for an elegant evening candlelight setting. The two pitchers below were my Mother’s. The simple elegance of this tablescape brings instant gratification…
Have a wonderful weekend! I’m joining in the wedding celebration of a special couple. Congratulations Chan and Sid! Details to follow…
