I've been talking with a florist about what I would like for our centerpieces. I originally wanted all hydrangeas but she made a very good point. They are such thirsty flowers that she suggests putting them with other long lasting flowers. Now I need to figure out what other flowers I want to incorporate. I don't want anything too colorful since we are having light pink table cloths. Here are a few ideas I have found. 

We are using silver mint julep cups to hold the flowers. 

Mixed among taller centerpieces, Brittany ordered smaller ones that mimicked her bouquet with the same antique hydrangea, David Austin roses, and curly willows.

Silver mint julep cups held garden roses, freesias, dahlias and hydrangeas for a classic, elegant effect.

Similar blooms clustered in mint julep cups topped the tables-Bianca roses, white spray roses, and green hydrangeas.
