There are certain plants that just have a natural association with the South: especially hydrangeas. They remind me of summertime and front porches and a by-gone era. These big, puffy, blooms in shades of white, pink and blue are delicate and beautiful. Perfect for a wedding, bridal shower or baby shower, perhaps with a Love Is In Bloom or a Baby is Blooming theme? In addition to invites, recipe cards and seed packets from my Sunnyside Print & Party Shop, here are some of my favorite items from other Etsy sellers as well as some beautiful hydrangea cupcakes, cakes and cookies, and some photos just for inspiration. I adore that sweet hydrangea petal cap. Maybe this is a theme that could work for a summertime 1st birthday too!
