You will want a foam holder with an angled cage such as

Hydrangea bouquets in a tear drop shape are going to be rare because it is very difficult to get hydranges (big and round) to be any shape but round.

Using artificial flowers will actually make this easier for you because you can trim the flowers to fit the shape you imagine.
— if you trimmed a fresh hydrangea that small it probably wouldnt be sturdy enough to survive. ———-

good luck.

You just place them in the holder and it sticks in the oasis. You will not have a problem…I just bought awhole bunch of pink and green hydrangeas I love them…you can also use artificial flower glue so you know they will stick and stay.

Years ago, it used to be called a cascade.

What you want to do is wrap all the stems with floral tape. You will stretch it slightly as you wrap & that will cause the tape to adhere to itself.
If the stems aren’t long enough you need to add some floral wire to them. Do this to the leaves, as well.
Then you will assemble the bouquet. Place the flowers in a pleasing design, from the side it will look like half a ball. Then add flowers to make the teardrop shape. When you get it to where you like it, remove the flowers one at a time, dip them in some white glue & re-insert the stems into the holder.

Visit Michael’s or a Hobby Lobby & take a look at some of their floral books, to get some ideas and more info.

You could also get come bouquet jewelry/crystals to put into the bouquet to make it sparkle and pretty. Im getting a couple of off ebay, they have alot of different types that you could choose from.
