The Big Guys!!

Hydrangea oh my!! I can’t even begin to count how many hydrangea tall centerpieces I’ve done throughout the years! It seems like every other wedding I do or have been a part of have these massive beasts are begging me to put them together. When dealing with a large wedding (or even smaller weddings now that I think about it) doing different layouts for half the tables really mixes it up, and I think makes the overall appearance look fantastic. Typically I’d recommend doing half tall, half short. Which brings me to these big beasts I call hydrangea balls; a tall cylinder vase (normally but square will do too) with a big ball of flowers on top. They can be real round and ball shape or be loose and spray out. These arrangements can even be just for the  check in table, bar decor, or ceremony. They are so big and really stand out wherever they are placed!

 

This red beast was part of the altar for the ceremony. The other one was just as big and sat about 8 ft away creating a grand border to the couple getting married!

All white hydrangea always looks really clean and simple, yet makes a big statement! This guy sat on top of a 4 ft cylinder vase, filled with water and wired orchids. It was quite the beast!

Getting into the beasts that spray instead of holding their round shape, orchids really help them come alive!

White Dendrobium orchids are perfect for this!

And finally, one of my favorites! A mix of hydrangea, other spring sprays, and feathers!! I just love how well shades of blue and purple go together!! LOVE!!

  2. Hi, I love your work !!!! I would like to know how many Dendrobium orchids did you use in order to make that center piece. I know this is part of your “know how”… I live in Colombia and cant hire your services but I was hoping you could perhaps give me some advise on how to make it… the florist here says I need over 100 and that just seems out of place.

    Thanks in advance !

    • Hi Andrea! Sorry for the delay! Are you talking about the all white Dendro centerpiece? There is probably around 50-75 stems. Using a combination of short and longer stems to create a full base that flows out. If that makes sense? Let me know if that helps! 🙂
