Roses in a Blue & White Tall Vase

What you need:

  • 1 doz. pink roses (cut 10.5 inches)
  • 1/3 bunch Eucalyptus leaves
  • 1/3 bunch Seeded Eucalyptus (cut 10.5") 
  • 3 Dahlia buds (cut 10.5 inches)
  • 1 package flower fresh
  • 1 tall blue & white vase 
  • 1 10" blue & white dinner plate Here's a similar one: (Blue Italian Spode 10 inch dinner plate)

Tools used:

Steps: 8

Flower Cost: $7.99 (excluding Dahlia buds)

Rated: Easy Arrangement

This is an arrangement done without foam or tape.  Some arrangements you put together by putting 1 flower in the vase at a time held by floral foam or tape but this one is hand held.  That is, you put it together by holding the roses in your hand and adding the eucalyptus and the Dahlia buds and then putting the whole arrangement in the vase.  First wire your roses.  Here's  a link with instructions:              http://www.floristinyou.com/prep

This arrangement is fairly simple and almost monochromatic.  The pink plays against the blues in the vase.  I bought the vase at a garage sale for a couple of dollars.  It is made of porcelain and is painted or gilded with a gold paint to make it look like a cloisonne vase, as opposed to a cloisonne vase, which is a metal vase that has metal strips or wires soldered to it to make cells into which enamel paste is applied and fired.  If you want to read more about the art of cloisonne here's a link:                                             https://www.carters.com.au/index.cfm/index/4452-cloisonne-vases/
