I was originally looking at using baby’s breath balls in my centerpieces. However, it turned out to be more expensive than I thought it would be because in order to get a full look we needed quite a few stems. Also, they smell funny sometimes.

I suppose it depends on what you prefer. As for me, I like the look of the hydrangea ball better. Could using fake flowers be an option? I made topiaries using fake hydrangea blooms and I loved how they turned out. I have them in my living room now.

I don’t think you would save that way. The amount of baby’s breath that you would have to buy in order to recreate that big hydrangea ball in size would not be worth it… I am using hydrangea to save money because of how many flowers you get per stem (maybe get them wholesale to save cash instead of going through a pro florist?)

@happilyeverafter32412: I dont know if you want to consider this but try perhaps adding some feathers in to fill space?

@happilyeverafter32412: I actually love the look of baby’s breath. Because the scale is so large, I think it looks spectacular – almost like snow dusted trees. 

If it saves you $1000, I would SO go with that option.

Martha Stewart Weddings featured using baby’s breath as more than an accent in their issue last spring.  I say if its good enough for Martha…!

I love the big ball of baby’s breath look–I actually think its very different and elegant at the same time. Everyone does hydrangeas.

Wow, I’ve never seen hydrangea and baby’s breath centerpieces this beautiful before! I’m tempted to change my white rose centerpiece to these hydgeangea one, looks more impressive because of the amount of flowers.
