Hydrangea makes pretty display

Creating a beautiful table centrepiece doesn't have to be timeconsuming or arduous

If you keep the basic items on hand you can assemble something in minutes.

At this time of year, you may have one or two hydrangea bushes blooming in your garden. To make a simple centrepiece, snip a few hydrangea heads in varying sizes and float

them in some fresh water until you are ready to make the arrangement. Alternatively, you may use other flowers for this idea, such as roses or orchids.

Materials: 3-4 fresh hydrangeas Clear vases (in varying sizes) Sharp knife or pruning shears Floating candles

Clean your hydrangea heads of any dirt or debris and fill your clear vases half way with room temperature water.

Immerse the hydrangea heads into the water and fill the container until the water level is a couple of centimetres from the edge of the vase.

Place your floating candles on top.

Repeat this step with the other vases.

Assemble your containers in the centre of the table or scattered along in a vertical line. This idea works well with rose petals as well. Float a variety of discarded rose petals in clear cylinders and place a floating candle on top.
