How to Arrange a Dozen Roses
Hi! I'm Allison Scott with Allieflower. Today we're going to arrange a dozen roses. Materials you'll need are a dozen roses, some greenery, a vase, water, and floral clippers. First, you'll pour water into the vase. You'll fill it a little over halfway full. You'll use your greenery, you'll cut different pieces. And you want it to kind of drape over the side of the vase. You'll pull off the green leaves that will be in the water so there won't be any. You'll do that so you have a color that goes all the way around the vase. This greenery will act as a grid to hold your roses in place. When you have your greenery around, you'll start with your roses. You'll take your first rose, it'll come with greenery on it. You'll clip off or pinch off the bottom leaves and it will also have what they are called guard petals, the petals that are protecting the inside of the rose. And you'll just slightly pinch those off as well. So you have a very pretty rose. The first thing you'll do is measure how tall you need your rose. With a vase it's about six inches like this one. You'll want it to be about six, the tallest flower to be about six inches above that so you're entire arrangement will be about a foot tall. So you'll kind of guess as to where you'll need to cut your rose and you'll cut it about right here. And your first rose will go right in the center. You'll measure about how you want it. You want your rose about right there, to be at the bottom. And then you'll fill in down here and around the middle. As you put your roses in your vase, you'll fill in empty holes where you have haven't put a rose yet. Let's see. Right here I have a hole. Make sure you take your guard petals off then you'll stick your rose in. We have our last rose to put in and we have one hole left to fill right here. Stick it in right there. You're almost finished. You'll take a couple pieces of your greenery that have a little bit longer of a stem and you'll fill in just a few of the holes that you have left in the open spaces for your arrangement. I'm Allison Scott with Allieflower and that's how you arrange a dozen roses.
