Early Summer Hydrangeas for the Home

Product Information

When the hydrangeas start to bloom we know summer’s just around the corner. One of the things I look forward to in June are the hydrangeas. It’s sweet how Mother Nature gifts us with these gorgeous blue, purple, violet, pink and white beauties to ease us into the scorching summer heat of July and August.

In this article we take a look at ways to decorate the home with hydrangeas, and then gather a selection of hydrangea-themed accessories to let us enjoy the loveliness all year.

A Centerpiece for All Occasions

Hydrangeas are so versatile. They look wonderful in a formal setting, like the lavender-themed wedding table shown above. Arranged with mini roses and leaves they make the perfect wedding centerpiece. It’s not just for formal events, though. Paired with crisp white pots and blue tablecloth hydrangeas add plenty of fresh-faced beauty to an outdoor brunch setting.

I love how the Atlanta-based interior designer Susan Dowhower used hydrangeas to decorate this Neoclassical-inspired formal dining room (above left). Hydrangeas on the dining table draw out the gorgeous blue wall. The fresh flowers, mauve drapes and their simple blue trim make for a very elegant room.

There are few naturally blue flowers so the blue-violet of hydrangeas are really precious. They work so well in a tablescape containing muted antique objects that harmonize with the wooden table (above right). The hydrangeas provide a burst of color so pleasing to the eye.

Hydrangeas All Year Long

I mentioned earlier that the wonderful thing about June is the hydrangea blooming. The bad thing about June is the hydrangea dying. We can’t have these flowers all year round, but here are some tasteful home accessories that help to impart the beauty of hydrangeas every day.

I love how the picture frame emulates hydrangea petals in 3D. The candle with its elegant, vibrant gift box is so sweet. So is the cutting board with its vintage print. These would make wonderful housewarming or hostess gifts.

Beautiful Hydrangeas with Bokeh Light

Now on to some customizable home accessories! These products can be personalized with your name, initial and/or text. They make unique gifts, just perfect for summer.

I found this lovely hydrangea growing on the grounds of a Buddhist temple in my neighborhood.

The sun was filtering through the trees in the background so I was able to capture the pretty bokeh or blurred points of light.

Hydrangeas make summer a season to look forward to, what with their cool, beautiful blooms.

This item makes a wonderful housewarming or hostess gift, a way to share the colors of early summer for enjoyment all season long.
