Harvest Table for Alfresco Dining from Living Large in a Small House

If I’m being honest, I think alfresco dining in the summer is over rated with the heat and all the bugs. But in the fall, now that’s where it’s at. Lynn created this beautiful harvest alfresco dining table for her guests. I love the little cheeseboards.

How to dry hydrangeas

If there was a flower that exuded summer and coastal aesthetic its hydrangeas. I picture beautiful coastal homes with lush hydrangeas in vibrant blues and pinks and purples. Did you know that you can dry out your hydrangeas to use them in your decor all year long? Scroll down to see how to dry hydrangeas.

Our hydrangeas exploded this year! I have strawberry vanilla hydrangeas and limelight and the colors were just gorgeous!

Late August-October is the perfect time to harvest them to dry out so you can enjoy them all year long. You’ll notice that the hydrangeas start to dry out a little on their own and become almost papery and a little crunchy in texture. You’ll also notice the color beginning to deepen and they start to look a little vintage. This is the best time to cut them.

Now you absolutely can just cut them and bring them in and allow to dry on their own or hand them upside down. But this is my favorite method below. I find that it yields a nicer color.

 

How to dry your hydrangreas

1.) Cut your stems so they are about 12 inches long.

2.) Remove all of the leaves from the stems.

3.) Place them in a vase of about 1-2 inches of water.

4.) Place the vase out of direct sunlight and allow the water to evaporate (about 1-2 weeks). This will naturally dry out your hydrangeas.

How to dry your hydrangeas

You can arrange your dried hydrangeas in vases, baskets or even make a dried hydrangea wreath. The muted tones are beautiful all year long!
