holiday geometry

A new angle on a half-dozen roses.

Design by Ian Prosser, AIFD, AAF, PFCI, NDSF

     Spreading contemporary Christmas cheer, this fun and festive design is a creative option for arranging a sextet of scarlet roses. Steel grass “frames”—randomly adorned with sparkling jewels—play against each other and loosely shelter the lower blooms while decorative sticks enhance the geometric quality. The materials are arranged into a green glass vase that is lined, on the interior, with an Aspidistra leaf, which amplifies the complementary verdant hue.


MATERIALS: ‘Freedom’ roses, button spray chrysanthemums, Aspidistra leaf, steel grass and cedar courtesy of FTD Flower Exchange; The FTD® Birthday Wishes™ Bouquet Vase by Better Homes and Gardens® from FTD Marketplace; Kolor Stix™ from W.J. Cowee; Oasis® UGlu™ Adhesive Dashes from Smithers-Oasis; jewels from craft store; glass ornaments from favorite supplier.

Once the flowers are arranged, insert decorative sticks into the floral foam at various heights, following the angles of the vase.

Bend blades of steel grass to create two angles, and insert the stem ends into the floral foam.

Adhere jewels, using adhesive dashes, to some of the bent grass blades.
