AUGUST INSPIRATION

Summer is a very vibrant season with an abundance of lots of bright and beautiful varieties, from sunflowers to delphiniums. With this bouquet I wanted to use pretty summer hydrangeas to create a calming seasonal bouquet. The baby blue and cool white avalanche roses along with daisy-like germini are married together with a hint of lime green seasonal foliage. The perfect bouquet to bring a sense of calm to any room of the home.

WHAT FLOWERS ARE IN THIS BOUQUET?

Blue Hydrangea, Avalanche Rose, White Germini, White Alstroemeria, Alchemilla Mollis, Hard Ruscus


HOW DO I CARE FOR THESE FLOWERS?

Hydrangeas can be very water sensitive and they will need to be rehydrated as soon as they arrive.

Cut 2-3cm on the diagonal while holding the stems under water, then take a needle and pieces some holes in the hydrangeas stem as this will help the hydrangea absorb water quicker.

Hydrangeas woody stems can struggle to draw up water, so if you see one starting to wilt you should remove it from the rest of the flowers in the vase, cut 2cm from the stem at a 45 degree angle and place in a bucket full of deep water for a couple of hours. Just return the stem to the vase with the rest of the bouquet when it perks up.


THIS BOUQUET IS PERFECT FOR....

With its chilled out shades, this bouquet makes for the perfect summertime gift to say 'thank you' to your friends and relatives for their hospitality during the holidays.
