Choosing Your Roses

Choose roses that are just beginning to open.  For a pretty contrast mix dark pink and red roses together. Carnations, daises and mums are some other great floral options for a kissing ball.

Trimming Your Roses

Using sharp scissors, trim stem of each rose approximately 3/4 to 1 inch, cutting at an angle. This will allow the stems to absorb water from the Styrofoam.
