To match our Timeless Collection we’ve put together a simple step by step guide to creating your own tabletop display.
Blooming Tabletop Displays
- Roses & flowers of your choice
- Vase of your choice
- Sharp Scissors / Shears
Picking your flowers
- Cut roses in the morning when they are well hydrated.
- Use a sharp pair of scissors or shears to cut your roses.
- Cut stems at an angle and place them immediately into cold water.
- Don't be afraid to be colour! Mix in some other beautiful garden flowers in there to with contrasting colours.
Creating your floral display
- Before arranaging your roses consider the length of the stem in comparison to the vase. Trim where nesscary and cut at an angle while stems are submerged in the water.
- Remove all leaves that will be under the vase as this will prevent them from rotting.
- Do the same with the next rose but in the opposite direction so that the stems cross over one another. Top Tip: You can also use a rubber band to bundle a few roses together to achive a unified look.
- Now find the perfect tabletop to display your beautiful arrangement!
