This post is different for me because it involves the color pink, but its main purpose is to document a tiny dream of mine. You see my favorite flower is the oh so beloved hydrangea. I love it for many reasons: 1. It speaks to me. 2. I find them very aesthetically pleasing. 3. My grandma loves them & I associate them with her. 4. I could keep going, but I just love them! When we moved into our farmhouse a year ago I wasn’t in love with the landscaping around the house, but there were a few hydrangea bushes that were blooming like crazy that stole my heart. My dream has always been to cover our dining room table in blooms so that’s what I did this weekend & had to share it with you guys. It’s the little dreams that come true right? I went out and gathered some hydrangeas from our yard & didn’t even get half of one of the bushes trimmed & I already had too many to fit on our dining room table…
I’m usually a white hydrangea girl, but my white hydrangeas didn’t do as well as the pink this summer so here we are. For this centerpiece I simply filled one of my antique dough bowls with the hydrangeas by laying them carefully face up. I wanted a very organic feel to the whole centerpiece so I didn’t try to place them perfectly, but more with a relaxed feel. I had this table runner from TJ Maxx forever now & the plates & chargers were from World Market. I placed a hydrangea on each of the plates & that was it. A simple sunday afternoon playing with hydrangeas. Of course this centerpiece won’t last forever & is more for fun, but that’s it… I love having fun with decor & being creative. After trying to be practical always in our fixer upper remodel, this is what my soul needs.
I love decorating with items found on our farm.. it’s seriously so rewarding. Have you guys ever filled a table with hydrangeas? What color hydrangea is your favorite? This year we will be taking out all of our landscaping here at the farmhouse & hopefully filling our yard with hydrangeas so next year our farmhouse will be framed in them. That’s a big dream & I’m hoping it comes true! Thank you guys so much for stopping by the blog & for sharing in my creative adventures.. it honestly means the world to me when you stop by here & when you share it with your friends and family. More than I could ever tell you! Be sure to follow me on Facebook & Instagram for behind the scenes of our farm life & to chat. xx
