    • 1). Plan to cut hydrangea blooms from the plant within two to three weeks of blooming. Hydrangeas may also change color as they grow, depending on the pH level of the soil, so trim the blossom when it reaches the desired color you want for the bouquet.

    • 2). Cut six to 10 stems with blossoms with pruning shears, approximately 5 to 6 inches down from the blossom to allow for holding or a vase.

    • 3). Hold one stem and then add another stem adjacent to it, either slightly higher or lower than the original stem. Alternate the blossoms around the original stem to create texture within the bouquet.

    • 4). Surround the hydrangeas with smaller flowers, such as baby's breath, if desired. Use different colors and textures to create a one-of-a-kind bouquet.

    • 5). Trim the bottom of the stems with shears, so they are all of uniform length. Wrap ribbon around the stems, starting from directly underneath the blossoms and winding around to the bottom of the stems. Secure the ribbon in place with a pearl-head pin. For a centerpiece, use florist tape to bind the stems together, and then insert into a vase.
