These flowers are so beautiful that you will want to make dozens and decorate not only bags, but garments, sweaters, shoes. . . Cover the Lipstick and Change bag or Little Gems so that the bag itself looks like a hydrangea poof we are all so familiar with. And then put on a pretty frock and go straight away to a garden party to drink tea, eat small sandwiches, and, perhaps, have a mint julep.
