Welcome back to the Maura Collection blog where we bring you the very latest in our beautiful artificial flower arrangements and bouquets. With March slowly fading into April we are always looking at ways to bring added life and colour to our arrangements and your home. In today’s blog entry we want to celebrate all that is Hydrangea by choosing three of our most popular hydrangea bouquets.
Did you know that there is some debate as to what Hydgrangea symbolises? Some have seen it to represent vanity and boastfulness (perhaps reflecting its abundance of petals and lavish, rounded shape) whilst others suggest that a bouquet of hydrangea expresses the giver’s gratefulness for the recipient’s understanding. Regardless of what you may think it symbolizes there is no doubt, in our minds at least, that this big, bold flower is one of our favourites.
The colours in this arrangement are still quite soft but this display is welcoming early Autumn in with its russet hydrangeas. These are highlighted with Queen Anne’s Lace, white roses and billowy willow eucalyptus. To turn this into a real talking point it comes in our rustic antique style vase. Looks great with the new bohemian style interiors or adds a flourish of soft colour to more Scandi home styles. As with all our arrangements, the flowers are not fixed in the vase which gives you scope if in future you want to add anything to the design.
What a lovely combination are these two. One being bold and sophisticated and the other the wild humble dill. The burgundy of the hydrangeas and the yellow of the dill make a simple but striking contrast. Displayed in our Alda vase.
A big bunch of a single flower always looks very dramatic and sophisticated. These hydrangeas have big bold heads of blue and green. They are 78 cm. long but are easily cut with wire cutters or bend them stems if you want to change the length. Like our arrangements of just one colour? Have a look at Violetta with deep, warming purples and fleeks of white. Likewise, Hydrangea Soft Green captures the showy blooms as they stand on their own quite happily but a piece of bold green foliage compliments them well.These big soft green tinged with pink hydrangea heads look stunning combined with dark big dark leafed branches.
