how to

the year-round romance of roses

A showcase of growers' favorite

rose varieties for 2008.


(Sample one of nine gorgeous arrangements

from this January design feature).


Romantic Wreath


Surrounding the ring of delicate pink ‘Rosita Vendela’ roses, both inside and outside the blush blooms, variegated Pittosporum provides a bold backdrop for the soft palette. The materials are assembled in a floral-foam design ring, creating a horizontal wreath that will captivate those who crave the unexpected. Concealing the edge of the wreath’s plastic tray, a pretty dotted ribbon repeats the roses’ feminine hue.



MATERIALS: ‘Rosita Vendela’ roses from Royal Flowers International; variegated Pittosporum from favorite supplier; Aquafoam® Designer Ring from Syndicate Sales; ribbon from Nashville Wraps. To contact these companies, see “Product Source Guide” on Page 161.


Snip roses about 1 inch beneath the blooms, and arrange the short-stemmed flowers into a saturated floral-foam design ring.
Arrange sprigs of variegated Pittosporum around the exterior of the design ring. Arrange a second ring of Pittosporum sprigs around the inside of the ring.


Wrap a coordinating ribbon around the ring’s plastic tray to conceal it. Use adhesive dots to secure, if needed. Tie into a pretty bow to finish.
