Rose Bouquet Ball
An easy and inexpensive way to decorate for your special occasion!

Things You'll Need
  • 24 Roses
  • Floral Foam Ball
  • Toothpick
  • Greening Pins
  • Ribbon
  • Utility or Sharp Kitchen Knife

This arrangement is unique and elegant. It's easy to make but leaves a lasting impression. The trick is to attach the flowers really close.
Instructions
  1. Order flowers for delivery one to two days before your party.
  2. Hydrate flowers
  3. Hydrate floral foam.
  4. Cut the roses leaving just a short stem 1/2 to 1 inch on each rose.
  5. Put 24 holes in the foam ball, one for each rose. Use a toothpick to poke the holes in the ball.
  6. Stick the rose stem into the hole. Secure using greening pin. Try to get the flowers as close together as possible when you are placing them into the ball. Repeat this step for all 24 roses.
  7. Measure desired length x 2 and add 3 inches for the knot. Tie into a loop (double knot). Hold in place with greening pin.
You can substitute other flowers for the roses to vary the look. Try using different color roses and add Delphinium and Baby's Breath or Hypericum Berries.

Blooms Tip

Daffodils, jonquils and tulips will prevent other flowers from absorbing water properly. Place them in a separate vase for several hours then seal the tips of the stems by dipping them in very hot water before adding them to a mixed arrangement. Do not re-cut their stems before adding more flowers, or enjoy them by themselves!
