Would this page be of any help? I didn’t look too closely at it. Also not sure if they ship to Canada. I’m trying to think of anywhere in Canada that would have dried hydrangeas…maybe if you contacted your florist?
You could also dry them yourself with silica or something. I have never done it but I have heard of it?
Hydrangeas grow almost everywhere in Canada. Can you check out the framer’s markets in your area? See who is selling them. Or, go for a drive in the country. Make contact with a farmer who will agree to cut a special order.
@julies1949: Hrmm, looks like I’m going to try drying my own. I really can’t do another DIY but if that’s what FI wants…ugh.
Thanks Julies! Any chance you can find me images of both hydrageas (alone) and lavender (alone) on the same table as part of a centrepiece? We have milk glass we were putting lavender stems into so I was thinking moving the hydrangea arrangements (in small containers using to hang off shephers hooks in the ceremony aisle) onto the table after the ceremony would make it more worth my while to be drying them.
@julies1949: Ooh much better idea. I will test that out, thanks!
I figured the hydrangea would just be plunked down in the same containers we use for them in the ceremony to avoid more work for the reception set up.
@strawbabies: How did you dry them with sand? The youtube julies posted wasn’t actually that informative but I found some links from there that were – none of them mentioned silica – most prefer the water drying method…
@julies1949: Thanks Julies, and I appreciate that you posted it as it led me to lots of other helpful stuff. I was in no way dissing you or it as you are my favorite helpful poster on here. As I am a complete moron when it comes to pretty things I need lots of help/ideas to come to the right solution for me.
