Just about one year ago, this blog started with a simple arrangement of rose heads floating in a grid-like pattern: It’s all about the arrangement (psst….even with last week’s roses) I have mixed things up by using floating roses in so many different ways. I have mixed rose blossoms with lanterns in Roses and Lanterns: A Simple and Stunning Centerpiece and with plenty of white space over spray-painted wooden planks in An arrangement of Single Roses: Simple, Upcycled and Breathtaking.
Admittedly, roses have never been one of my favorite flowers. They just seemed so….ordinary. I have learned to embrace their beauty by admiring these blossoms for their variety of colors, soft petals and classic style. I have discovered that by floating rose blossoms in different types of arrangements, it allows the viewer to see the majesty of each unique petal on each individual rose.
This is yet another simple wow arrangement that highlights the special qualities of the lovely rose.
This arrangement was created quite by accident. I had just finished clearing up the dining room from our Purim seuda (festive meal). For the seuda, I had set up individual square vases with floating roses alternating with individual vases with submerged orange berries and tulip petal swirls. I placed all the vases that I had collected on my kitchen table and was contemplating what to do with the flowers. When I looked down, I realized that I had inadvertently formed a beautiful, albeit haphazard collection of individual roses interspersed with submerged berries and tulip petals.
Here it is!
