Summer is definitely here, and everywhere I go in Atlanta I see all those beautiful hydrangea bushes in full bloom! In honor of those beauties, I thought i’d treat you to a glimpse into another set of DIY hydrangea flowers I did for an amazing couple…who happen to be some dear friends of mine!

Kristin and Joe had a sweet and simple intimate morning wedding in an old industrial building that’s been converted into a church.  With a minimal color palette and rustic DIY touches, the bride created a perfect atmosphere for brunch with their closest friends and family.

She selected pure white hydrangeas as her flower of choice for both her centerpieces and bouquets that I made. I added a few white roses and some baby’s breath to the bride’s bouquet to give it just a little extra texture.

The hubs helping me make bouquets the day before...he's such a trooper.

For the centerpieces, we continued the hydrangea and burlap look by wrapping galvanized buckets in burlap and matching ribbon, then adding three hydrangea bushes to each bucket. 

Burlap cut and hot glued to bucket, secured with ivory ribbon.

We cut green (wet) floral foam blocks to fit in the buckets, soaked them fully in water (to keep the hydrangeas hydrated) and inserted them into the bottom of the bucket.


I used 3 hydrangea stems per bucket.

We then paired that with the cute DIY table number frames made by the bride.


I just loved some of the personal touches, like the wedding favor coffee cup sleeves made by the bride for the coffee/hot chocolate bar!

Here’s to a lifetime of love just as simply sweet as they day they became one!
