Don’t you just love it when the hydrangeas are in bloom? These stunning flowers bloom from spring to the end of summer with large globes of flowers. Hydrangeas come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Their blooms can be pink, blue, red, white, purple, and green. We created this hydrangea heart cookie set to coordinate with the centerpieces for a 40th summer wedding anniversary party. Our simple design in periwinkle and white played on the colors of the flowers on the tables. We selected an elegant script to highlight the word “love” much like the invitations and party decorations. The hydrangea heart cookies, wrapped in cello bags and tied with a white ribbon, were given as party favors – a fabulous way to remember a special event.
