A simple modern design of soft peach roses in a cube vase complemented by seashells for a summery feel. This would also work with white or cream roses, or other colours could be accessorized with glass cubes/marbles, pebbles. If you were having a party this design could be repeated in sets of 3 or 5 to create a lovely table centrepiece surrounded by nightlights.
“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.”
― Emma Goldman – well maybe both would be good!
How to Create
I used a glass cube about 12cm square, which I filled about halfway with mixed shells. Dilute your flower food and pour into the vase. I then created a grid using narrow sellotape across the top of the vase. You will need to create gaps for 9 roses, so 2 lengths of sellotape in each direction. Try not to bring the sellotape too far down sides of the vase that way it won’t be visible. I selected the 9 best roses from my bunch, and cut the stems so they would fit above the shells, remove all remaining leaves. I then slotted each rose into the grid, as more roses are added they support each other. Make sure the water reaches the rose stems and top up a little if needed.
