Dried Hydrangea & Seeded Eucalyptus Centerpiece

Here’s a closer look at our centerpiece from the Christmas Home Tour. I knew I wanted to use some of the pretty dried flowers from my hydrangea bushes this year.

Also, I kept being pulled to the many vintage and rustic boxes I noticed all over the blogosphere. So when I visited a new vintage store that opened in my area, I found the perfect box that had a little grey-green patina and was just the size I was looking for to adorn our dining room table.

So I filled the box which floral foam to hold three glass candles. Then I gently placed the dried hydrangea in and around the candles.

Next, I added some left over cedar from some of the other decorations in the house.

The vendor said it dries well, an added bonus since I will be making this quite a few days early.

So I finished the look with the eucalyptus which did a great job filling in the container and adding that casual airy feel that I love. Originally I thought I’d use some pine and juniper cuttings from the yard but I couldn’t pass up the chance to have something a little unusual for this Pennsylvania gardener in the home.
