Decorating with Hydrangeas
One of my favorite seasons is right around the corner – hydrangea flowering season. Depending on where you live, hydrangeas can bloom as early as April and as late as August. The blooms from my shrubs are large, blue, puffy balls. I use cuttings in my house throughout the blooming season – which for me is about 4 months long. Decorating with hydrangeas is definitely “a thing”. This is how I use them in my house.
Dining Room Centerpiece
These particular blooms were clipped as soon as they fully blossomed. I swoon for this deep blue color.
Vintage Bottles as Vases
As these photos progress, you will notice the varying shades of the blooms. I pinky-swear promise that all of these beauties are off of the same bushes.
Antique Watering Can
Colors can vary due to weather conditions. Too much, or too little of water, sunshine, heat, cold and soil can alter the color. I purchased this antique watering can at an auction for just .10¢! It makes for a perfect outdoor display, when not being used to water plants.
Milk glass Display
Crisp blue and white pair perfectly together. I love being able to use some of my vintage milk glass pieces for floral displays.
Wicker wrapped bottles are another favorite of mine. To me they represent Spring and Summer.
Vintage Minnow Bucket
These are what my hydrangea blooms look like in late Summer. Can you believe the difference in the color? I live in a lake community and love to decorate with this vintage minnow bucket. It’s perfect because it is water-tight and has blue graphics.
English Blue and White
Remember: blue+white=dynamite! LOL
This bloom is not from my plants. I went to a luncheon and these beauties were on each table as a centerpiece.
In Fall or Winter, I sometimes purchase grocery store hydrangeas. They offer a great pick-me-up with their puffy white blooms. They look beautiful in my chalk painted mason jars. Yes, I will paint practically anything LOL.
Blooms are equally beautiful in clear mason jars.
I truly hope that you have been inspired in some small way today. Do you decorate with hydrangeas?
Don’t forget to Pin this to your favorite Pinterest board!
I love hydrangeas! Ours bloom more around July/August and I can’t wait to see if the 4 new bushes I planted in the fall start growing and blooming this summer.
Hey Joanne! Aren’t hydrangeas gorgeous! Here in Georgia the blooms are just starting to bud – about the size of a penny. It’s hard to believe that they can flower so large! It’s funny how each state blooms at different times. Praying your new bushes bloom. We planted 2 new strawberry hydrangeas – excited to see if they bloom too!

Hydrangeas are my favorite flower! I love how you display them. I also love the blue and white village! Please give me some information about them. Thank you!
Hi Kay – thank you so much! The little delft blue and white houses are items that I have collected from thrift stores and antique shops over the years. They are small liquor bottles that used to be used by KLM airlines.
You can read more about them in this article: https://www.klm.com/travel/us_en/prepare_for_travel/on_board/travel_classes/miniatures.htm
I hope this helps. There are so many designs of different houses. It’s fun to spot one when thrifting.
All the best,
