I stole this idea from Preston Bailey, the guy who planned Oprah’s 50th birthday party.    I only steal ideas from the very best!

Bigger is better

What you need:

1 or 2 large roses

Rose petals in shallow dish

1 shallow bowl

1) Gently pluck all the petals off your roses.

2) Carefully lay them in circles in a shallow bowl of water until they appear to be one large rose.

3) Work from the outside towards the inside, starting with a large circle with the biggest petals you have.  Continue in circles using smaller and smaller petals. They’ll float around a bit and anger you, but just move them back to where they belong and continue on.

4) Tear off a couple of leaves from the rose and stick them under the petals.

Oh!  And do this arrangement where you plan to keep it.   It really doesn’t travel well.
