Romantic Garden Urn – Beautiful Round Red Rose Floral Design for Florists. What is more romantic than dreaming about walking through a garden of beautiful roses? I’m Erik Witcraft AIFD, floral contributor for Florist Review Magazine.
I am going to show you how to make a beautiful urn arrangement that’s truly spectacular and that your customers will really love. Let’s get started!
First, I anchored a brick of foam presoaked with floral preservative into the urn with waterproof adhesive tape. Next, I took an 8” oasis sphere from Smithers-Oasis and paved ‘Freedom’ roses around the entire surface except for the bottom. I anchored the sphere into the container with long hyacinth stakes. Next, I will place Italian ruscus, this fragrant scented geranium, seeded eucalyptus, and dusty miller to create an attractive base around the luscious rose orb. I am using a variety of fabulous ROYAL FLOWERS roses including soft pink ‘Jessika’, red ‘Freedom’, and lavender ‘Sky Garden’ roses. I am also using ‘Purple Sky’, ‘Super Nova’, and ‘Purple Irischka’ spray roses. Once I have all the spectacular roses in place, I will incorporate these burgundy cymbidiums in water tubes adding that luxe quality to this design.
The idea here is to create an abundant flowing textural feel that truly is romantic. Lastly, insert some ‘Magical Blue Lagoon’ eryngium as an accent and these branch hearts I created out of Kunzea ahead of time…WOW FACTOR! Overall, we have created a generationally appealing design that is garden-style but truly romantic! It’s perfect for the sweethearts of your world! The sweethearts of your business! Love is in the air! For more creative inspiration, stay tuned for next time, thanks and see you soon! 10 stems of dusty miller 5 stems seeded eucalyptus 5 stems of Italian ruscus 10 stems of scented geranium 10 stems ‘Green Trick’ dianthus 25 stems of pink ‘Jessika’ roses 40 stems of red ‘Freedom’ roses 25 stems of lavender ‘Sky Garden’ roses 10 stems of ‘Purple Sky’ spray roses 5 stems of ‘Super Nova’ spray roses 10 stems of ‘Purple Irischka’ spray roses 1 stem of burgundy cymbidiums 5 stems of ‘magical blue lagoon’ eryngium 10 stems of Kunzea foliage 1 Pedestal Bowl of your choice 2 Bricks of midnight oasis 1 – 8” Oasis Sphere 10 water tubes Oasis waterproof adhesive tape Bind wire
