How about an Ice Cream Sundae when there’s mountains of snow out the window? Make an arrangement of roses and carnations to look like an Ice Cream Sundae.
You will need:
Ice Cream Sundae Soda Glass
Colored Plastic Mylar Strips Or Easter Grass (To Look Like Ice Cream)
Large Roses To Match Color Of Easter Grass
White Carnations (Whipped Cream)
Red Miniature Rose Bud (Cherry)
To prep for your arrangement, process the fresh flowers and allow them to drink water for at least 24 hours. For best results, when processing the flowers, cut about 1 inch of the bottom of the stems underwater. This process helps the flower to drink up water instead of air when cutting the stems. The flowers will last longer.
Prepare the soda glass by placing the Mylar strips against the sides of the glass. For best results, place the Mylar around a tube smaller than glass. This allows the strips to rest against the glass and form a opening in the center of the Mylar for the water. Add water with floral preservative to the soda glass.
Add a “Cherry” to the “Whipped Cream” with a miniature rosebud. Measure and cut the miniature rose taller than the carnations. Place the rosebud in the center of the carnations.
Place 2 straws to the side of your “Sundae.
A new idea for Wedding reception stations, is an ice cream station. Small containers of ice cream are made available to add caramel, hot fudge, fruit, sprinkles, and other goodies to create ice cream sundaes. This arrangement would make a great centerpiece for this station.
