A Customer Favorite: Blue Moon

"Blue Moon"

I want to say right off that the name “Blue Moon” is not the name of this particular hydrangea flower, so don’t run off trying to find the blue moon variety. It’s a name I gave the design line in my BlueHyd shop that uses this image.

With a store full of hydrangeas, I had to come up with creative names for my flowers to differentiate as they could not all simply be called blue hydrangeas. With a wedding line of blue flowers that are all unique, this big, round blossom reminded me of the moon, and hence the name.

The dark blue hydrangea is a big time favorite, but this one is also a popular choice for the brides who are planning a summer or hydrangea themed wedding. Light blue is always a nice color – so very calming and pretty – and it looks great on any of our specialty papers.

Because of it’s round shape, the Blue Moon flower looks great on everything, and I’m glad I snapped this photo a few years ago to keep this pretty flower preserved forever on paper. All I did was remove the background and that gave me lots more options for designing.

If you want to see how I do that, then read my page: Create a Transparent Background – I use a free program called Paint.net.

The popularity of hydrangeas, and especially blue hydrangeas, make this a beautiful card to send for any occasion that calls for a special word of thanks.

The inside is plain, light blue with plenty of space for writing a personal note to a bridesmaid, wedding guest or party planner. This design is part of the Blue Moon line which is very popular for it’s pretty, round, light blue flower.

Green Flowers Are Popular

Usually toward the end of the growing season, the hydrangea flowers on the bush in my front yard will take on a greenish hue. It’s a very odd color for a flower, and has proved to be a popular choice in my wedding store for invitations and matching stationery and stickers.

In the photo below you can see that the bloom has blue, green and pink petals. These are the interesting colors that blend on the flowers at the end of summer. I almost enjoy them more than the bright blues of the early buds.

Hydrangea Stationery From The Backyard Garden

Summer weddings can take place in the backyard and what better way to incorporate childhood memories of helping with the yard work than to include hydrangeas on wedding stationery.  These blue hydrangea save-the-date cards feature a hedge of beautiful blue blooms.

Smaller, flat announcements have a row of hydrangea shrubs along the bottom in blooming shades of blue among bright green leaves. Above the garden hedge border, are five lines of template text in dark green for customizing with bride and groom names, wedding date and destination if you choose. Each line is easy to change individually and all this is printed on linen paper (or you may change it on the product page). This 4×5 inch flat card comes with a white envelope, or choose a decorated linen envelope to match.
