I am so excited to share Dollar Hydrangea with you today! They sell bulk hydrangeas delivered to your door for $55 for 50 stems. I was completely skeptical… until I ordered them for myself.
These are the fresh white hydrangeas, but there are a few other options as well, including fresh blue and mini green. You set the delivery date when you place the order and, if I remember correctly, options were Tuesday-Friday.
They arrive in a large box, with each flower head individually wrapped, and each stem in a small baggie of water. They arrived cool, and I made sure to be home so that they didn’t send one extra minute in the blazing 95 degree heat that day. It took some time to unpack them, but I did so right away and filled a large bucket. (see photo above)
I ordered these to use as decor for the Welcome Back Teacher Luncheon at Whit’s school. Fifty-five stems go a LONG way. I made 24 small arrangements, each with just two stems.
And, I decorated two cakes with the extra seven! The luncheon was the day after the flowers arrived and they were still in mint condition. They were quite thirsty and I had to refill every single jar about 18 hours after I first made the arrangements. I took that as a very good sign!
I brought home a few after the luncheon – there were plenty to go around – and have enjoyed them! These pictures were taken two days after they arrived.
The picture below was just taken at 10 days after I received the hydrangeas! Wow! Most of them were tossed but these two are still hanging in. I had to replenish the water every single day, which was crazy. Most flowers I fill up once and then they really don’t drink any more. I just change it to keep it fresh.
I will definitely order these for future events and also think they would be great for gifts – you could easily make 10 great sized arrangements for $55 and many more smaller ones for even less. I think I’m going to do the small green option with red roses for Christmas.

I’m officially signing off for the weekend! It’s 90-something outside and pool o’clock.
