A budvase of a single flower is a simple and elegant addition to a desk or a breakfast tray. When choosing a budvase, pay attention to the weight of the vase. If you are using a tall flower, be sure to choose a vase that is also tall. The vase must hold the flower, plus the water needed to nourish the flower. The vase should not fall over because of the weight of the water and flower.
You will need:
Single Long-Stemmed Rose
Single stem of Greenery (Leatherleaf,plumosia, etc.)
1 ½ yards of ¾” Ribbon (To match Rose )
2 pieces of #22 Florist wire
Begin by processing the rose. Fill a sink with warm water. Empty pack of floral preservative (That came with rose) into the water. Fill budvase with water and floral preservative.
The height of the flower should be 1 ½ times the height of the vase. Cut rose stem underwater in the sink.
Place end of piece of wire in the base of the bloom.
Wrap wire around stem for added security.
Place rose in budvase.
Place single stem of greenery behind rose. There should only be stem in the vase, not leaves of the greenery. The top of the greenery should not be taller than the top of the bloom.
Make a small bow with the ribbon. Secure ribbon with wire wrapped with floral wrap. Place bow in front of rose.
Enjoy your Rose Budvase longer by not placing it in direct sun or heat.
