That is really pretty!  I love bouquets with dimension, like they’re not a perfect sphere of all the same flowers.  My bouquet is actually similar.  It’s going to be all purples and a touch of pink.  It has hydrangeas, roses, peonies and lemon leaf.  So excited about this part, I love flowers!

ah! I used to think the exact same thing about dogwood flowers and carnations, but now I’ve come to love the simplicity and chic-ness of them (all white). And, of course, their price! Laughing

I love hydrangeas. However, ever since I started teaching botany, there are very few plants I regard as weeds. Dandelions were delibrately brought over by the German settlers since they are such a useful plant. The roots have potent medicinal properties, the young leaves make a tasty salad and the flowers make a dandy wine!

I carried hydrangeas in my sister’s wedding. My mom was totally horrified at first but ended up liking my bouquet the best out of all the bridesmaids. They look awesoms.

Love that bouquet!  Hydrangeas are beautiful, especially when arranged just right with other similar blooms, this is a perfect example.  I’m having something similar in mine too.
