Making Your Cut Roses Look Professional in a Vase


My hubby brought me home a dozen on long stem roses but there weren't any greens to liven up the roses. I went out to my yard and figured these still whitish gray accent annuals which were still thriving(sorry I can't think of the name of this accent annual) snipped a few as well a few stems from my low growing yews and I created my own pretty arrangement. I had the red vase so I carefully snipped until I felt the size was perfect.
My beautiful Christmas arrangement
Roses, greens or any living garden plant stems. Holly would work well too!
Pretty sad looking and then I started adding greens but the white really gave the holiday look. Check below!

Make sure the center top flower is the tallest. Be careful you don't cut too much off the rose stem. Do it slowly inch by inch.
To fill spaces around the roses add your garden stems.
