I bought a bunch of cylinder vases, 3 in wide, 10 inch tall.
Was planning to use at least 3 hydrangeas per vase. Mom thinks I am spending way too much on flowers and suggested to use 1 stem per vase instead, maybe adding a long green leave inside.
I was thinking to buy the hydrangeas from costco. I want to make the centerpiece flowers affordable.
Any suggestions how to pull this off without spending a lot on flowers?
I am planning to do a mockup this weekend, but I want to get some ideas before I go buy flowers.

Have you estimated about how much using three stems will cost you?
I don’t think hydrangeas are particularly expensive, so it seems to me you’re already being pretty budget-conscious. <3 And they are gorgeous flowers.
Plan on filling the vases with water, though- hydrangeas fare very poorly when they have to be out of water for a long time.
There are lots of really cute ideas for decorating inside tall vases- I’ve seen all kind of things used, including fruit! 🙂

It depends on how full you want them. I did something similar for our table assignment area as decor. You can see that we used four per small vase for a lush appearance but I think three would be fine.

ooo I was wondering the same thing!
I am thinking about adding a clear wine bottle with a stem of hydrangea in it but I wonder if I should add two?
Do you know how much costco hydrangeas cost?
I saw trader joe’s selling them for $7 for 2-3…

jk I just looked and its like $85-$95 for 30 stems.
Pretty good deal really and everyone says they’re awesome…
Do you know if they come in a variety like that or if I could order JUST white?

oooh look! Sam’s Club has them for $79.88 for 30 blooms!
They are the big ones too~ 6″ wide and 24″ long stems.

I ordered mine from Costco, and I was very happy with them. I wouldn’t recommend using only one per vase, though. We used 3, and it appeared rustic but not sparse. Some people use 5 stems per vase. Granted, not the best picture, but you get the idea. Costco customer service was awesome & I was very happy with my flowers. We also ordered white roses from them, and they turned out great.
Trader Joe’s hydrangeas are a reasonable price, too, but the convenience of ordering from Costco was worth the slightly higher price (really, nominal price difference). Also, TJs hydrangeas are hit & miss. Some are very nice, but some are kind of droopy and not very full.
