I love hydrangea, they have such dainty blooms and last throughout the season with their hues subtly changing. Come fall they dry beautifully to be enjoyed inside. Now living in a older home with six mantles to decorate I wanted to do something different for each one and also something quick and easy.

For the formal parlor hydrangea and dried roses were ideal. I placed three teacups filled with water and fresh hydrangea filled in with dried blooms and silk leaves. It turned out very pretty and suits the parlor, delicate and feminine.



Using items you have on hand like the tea cups and combining natural elements from the garden makes a display or arrangement both easy and meaningful. Being surrounded by beauty feeds the soul and our homes should be a space we love to be in. Love where you live!
