i love hydrangeas because of their full shape and their color variety. they can come in white, pink, blue, green, purple, and any mix of the above. i had white and blue hydrangeas on the tables at my wedding.
Turn table numbers into works of art with quilling paper. Print out numbers in desired font (a fancy shape lends itself well to quilling) and size (we used 650-point Linoscript for a 4-by-6-inch piece of card stock); you'll use this as a template to shape numbers.
