Flower arrangements for tables - vase size question
I am hosting a baby shower and want to use pink and green hydrangea on each table. Spoke with my florist, and have to make a decision between 3" and 6" bubble ball type vases. The 3" would have 3 hydrangea stems, the 6" would have 5 stems. The tables are meant to seat 8-10 people. We will have 8 at each table.
I did a mock up the arrangements over the weekend, as I have the hydrangea bushes in bloom and both size bubble ball vases here at home. The 3" actually looks bigger than I thought it would.
Originally, I told my florist I wanted to go with the larger size ball. However, the larger bowl when filled with 5 large headed hydrangea stems is quite big. I don't want the arrangements to take up too much space on the tables, but don't want the arrangements to seem to small for the tables? The tables will be set up with the place settings as the meal isn't buffet.
Thoughts on appropriate vase size? Also, if anyone has a better idea with regard to the vases, please feel free to comment, post pics, etc. I picked the bubble ball because I like how they look when filled with only one type of flower. I am definitely going with hydrangea, but am open to suggestions of other vase options.
