diy garden wedding flowers

Laura and Shawn sent this sweet photo of their wedding ceremony. Florist, Frances Monroe of Floral Arts in Fayetteville, NC, provided the hydrangeas and her mother, Susan, put them together when they got to the garden. “We did very little decorating at the garden, because it was already so beautiful with the plants blooming there.”

To recreate this look: Follow the instructions for making a floral frog in my last post. Cut hydrangeas to approximately 4-6 inches and make a 1 inch slit in the stem to aid water absorbtion. Add greens and arrange.

Smaller hydrangeas work best. If you can’t find smaller stems, separate large stems into small bunches. Using extra stem pieces, support the smaller flowers by wrapping together with floral tape before inserting into foam.

    So fresh in blue! I love it! What a great way to dress up the aisle and an easy DIY, and so much less expensive than spheres / pomanders. You can easily get the short shepard’s hooks at Big Lots or Walmart for less than $5 each.
