My mom and I tried out our DIY floral centerpieces for the wedding yesterday. We both had never done anything like this, and I think they turned out pretty good! What do you think? After looking at them, we thought maybe it would look better with more of a “pink” rose than “dusty blush” like the ones pictured. We’re also going to have three hydrangeas per vase (there are only two here) and maybe one more rose. Only thing I don’t like is that the hydrangeas are not a perfect round shape. One of them is kind of flat, and I don’t really know how to fix it. Any tips?

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.
