Metropolitan Roses

Charlotte Tolhurst

Sleek and super stylish: pair bright, pretty pinks with classic
green foliage for sophisticated city elegance.

YOUR DAY, YOUR WAY:
MORE DIY DETAILS

These arrangements are perfect for your table centrepieces and
also make a great longer-lasting gift for your bridal party.

You will need…  floral foam, knife, cellophane,
rectangular trough, scissors, 8 pink roses.

DISCOVER THE MOST BEAUTIFUL
BLOOMS

Use a knife to cut the foam down to fit the rectangular trough
(2). Immerse the foam in water for about three minutes, until no
more bubbles rise up and the foam is soaked through and feels
heavy. 

Place the cellophane into the trough, followed by the foam. Trim
the cellophane so that it’s just below the top of the trough (3).
The cellophane will ensure that the trough stays watertight.

Use scissors to cut the rose stems down to a height that will
fit into the depth of the foam in the trough (4). Insert the roses
into the foam block (5).

Arrange with succulents as shown (1), which offer a modern
contrast to the bright pink.
