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?

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.
