Friday Flowers: Blue Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are right up there with the most summery flowers, don’t you think? I love to walk around my neighborhood on a summer afternoon and check out the beautiful cloud-like hydrangea blooms in front of everyone’s houses. They come in a rainbow of colors: white, purple, pink, even green, but my all-time favorite are the blue! It’s no surprise that they are a popular choice for many brides. From bouquets of just a couple lone hydrangea blooms to larger arrangements where it’s just used as an accent, I love when blue hydrangea is used in weddings!

Simple hydrangea bouquets can look so classic and preppy too:
