Flowers are one of the easiest ways to brighten up any space quickly, and by quickly I mean, this low hydrangea centerpiece took me less than 10 minutes to make! Hydrangeas happen to be one of my very favorite flowers and I am lucky enough to grow them in our garden. We have Annabelle hydrangeas and I love seeing them in our yard, but I also love seeing them in my home.
How To Make A Low Hydrangea Centerpiece
Since I was adding this beauty to our table I figured I would show you how easy it was to make this centerpiece. Now that I have attended my friend Melissa’s DIY Floral Workshop I am constantly feeling inspired to create beautiful bouquets!

Here is What you Need
- A low vase or soup tureen (I found mine at a local flea market and just removed the lid)

- Hydrangeas (You can find these at any local grocery store or like me use some from your garden)
- Alum (read my Tips and Tricks for Long Lasting Hydrageas post to see why I use Alum)
- Floral knife or scissors

Creating Your Low Hydrangea Centerpiece
First, gather your supplies and find a good table to spread them out on. I cut 4 medium sized Annabelle hydrangeas from our garden and immediately got them into some water. Then I cut boxwood clippings from the bush in our front yard and aspen clippings from the tree in our backyard. TIP: Look around your yard to see what you have that would make pretty green filler or find pretty greenery at the grocery store!
Preparing Your Container
Whenever I make a low centerpiece I like to use tape to create a guide for my flower placement and to offer the flowers and greenery support. It’s a simple crisscross method that I find really helps! Just make sure you add your water before you use the tape!
Once the grid was in place I prepared my Annabelle hydrangeas using my Alum trick and placed them in the soup tureen.
Add Your Greenery
Finally, step back and enjoy your low hydrangea centerpiece! So simple, right?! Just how I like it.
