A stunning flower arrangement is the perfect compliment to a romantic dinner or as a gift to that special someone. However, making the arrangement yourself will add an even sweeter touch. Here are some simple steps to make a beautiful, traditional arrangement in 15 minutes.
You will need:
- 25 red Roses.
- Bunch of Leather leaf
- of Baby’s breath
- 10 shoots of Lily grass
- Long vase with an opening of 5 to 6 inches.
The first step is to fill about three quarters of the vase with fresh, cool, clean water. Flower food may be added to extend the vase life of your arrangement.
To create the arrangement, put leather leaf inside the vase, creating a “mat” where the rest of the flowers will sit on. Try to cover the whole opening of the vase to ensure there are no empty spots. Baby’s breath is next. All the 7 stems should go inside the vase.
Now, comes the fun part: start putting the roses in! The first rose should be placed in the middle of the baby’s breath, which should coincide with the center of the vase. Put 4 roses in the corners of the vase (picture that the 4 roses should form a square if a line is drawn in between them.) This is the skeleton of your arrangement. Continue placing roses in between these 5 roses as desired. To add a finished look, put the lily grass shoots in between the flowers.
Keep in mind that the stems of the Baby’s breath should be cut around 2 and half inches shorter than the roses’ stems. This will make the heads of the roses pop and be more visible.
Creating a stunning arrangement in minutes can be very easy! Put your skills to the test and enjoy creating this romantic arrangement.
