Nothing says spring like fresh flowers. For your next dinner why not take a trip to your local flower market and spruce up your table with that simple DIY roses centerpiece.
- Your flowers: 2 dozing roses, 3 pieces of lily grass filler.
- 3 pots* (about 10” in height).
- Scotch Tape.
- Scissors or flower cutter.
*It is important not to choose a vase that is too high, as it will disturb the view during dinner parties.
Step one: Pick your flowers, I chose red & white, but you can replace the red with any color to match your décor or mood.
Step two & three: fill your pots with fresh water. Make a grid across the tops of each pot with strips scotch tape placed 2 inches apart. (It should look like a checker board when you’re finished.)
Step four: Stand your roses next to the vase; you’ll be able to see how much you need to cut off to make the flowers fit in your pots.
Step five & six: Use your Lily grass filler and place it around your pot of decoration
Voila you have a chic flower arrangement for your next event!
