Step 1: Arranging roses in a vase

Step 1: Arranging roses in a vase

A vase full of roses will always work better in a shorter vase with a wider neck. This way the puffy heads of your rose petals will be clearly visible from any place in the room. Taller arrangements with just roses never look as impactful, so we would recommend a short vase with a wider neck for flower arrangements of roses.
Step 2: Start with a small arrangement

Step 2: Start with a small arrangement

With roses start with a small arrangement and build out to any size you want. Blooms always work better in odd numbers. Find the focal point and arrange the roses around it. 5 roses would be one in the middle, 4 around the outside. 7 roses would be one in the middle 6 around the outside.
Step 3:  Source your Roses locally

Step 3: Source your Roses locally

We source our roses from Petaluma California.  To pick the freshest, longer lasting roses there are a few tell tale signs of ‘freshly cut’ that are important to look out for:
  1. Look underneath, you want to see a fresh white core in the middle of your rose stem. If you see a browny, green then they haven’t been cut in a while and may quickly bloom when you cut them and die much more quickly.
  2. Sturdy, prickly stems are super healthy on roses
  3. A tight bud, the tighter the better, the more it will bloom outwards.
  4. The outer petals on roses are the protective petals, these protect the inner bud so will often be a little brown on the outside.
