blush_86:  You are off to a great start! I think sometimes we try to be too perfect when we arrange flowers. Here is a pic of a rose and hydrangea centerpiece where the roses are clustered rather than spaced out. It looks  alittle more relaxed.

I agree you definitely have a flat hydrangea. Not sure how to fix it, though! Overall, I think it’s beautiful!!!

Have ice water on hand because hydrangea’s are huge heat babies and will wilt at any heat. I used them in my bridesmaids bouquets and we had to keep adding ice all morning to keep them perky.

I agree with julies1949:  that the clustered roses would look better

The hydrangea may be laying flat because there’s no support. What you can do is take green floral tape (it kind of looks like skinny duct tape) and make a grid pattern. That way each flower has its own little square of tape to support it. I would add a picture of what I mean but I’m posting from my iPhone. Also, Google “supporting flower stem in vases) and hopefully it directs you to what I’m referring to. Good luck, the arrangents are pretty. You’re on the right track.
