How To Make Your Own Modern Rose Arrangement

Valentine’s Day is just two weeks away, which means the flower lovers here at Cascade Floral Wholesale are rolling up their sleeves and prepping our fetching florals for their debut. In the spirit of the season, we thought we’d show you a simple way to make a serious statement with your red roses this year.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with having a beautifully-designed arrangement of roses or other florals sent to your sweetheart, but there’s something extra special about creating a rose design yourself. This piece works as the main event (AKA your V-Day gift) or as the centerpiece to a romantic dinner. Either way, you’ll score major brownie points for having conjured it up all on your own. Here’s what you’ll need to make this little beauty:

  1. A dozen roses 
  2. A cube vase
  3. Rocks (we like black for contrast)
  4. Water!
  5. These greens
  6. Scissors

Clear yourself a space to work in and you’re ready to create! Watch our demo below for step-by-step instructions. 

Step One:

Put Rocks in the bottom of your cube vase and cover with water that has floral food in it. 

Step Two:

Circle the Bear Grass around your hand and drop into the cube vase.

Step Three:

Cut 9-12 of your roses to be about 4″ long and place with stems tounching the water so the heads are just touching the edge of the vase.
