Centerpieces and/or flower arrangements can be quite costly this time of year. With Thanksgiving over and Christmas right around the corner it seemed like the perfect time to share the DIY rose and cranberry center pieces we make every Thanksgiving. My mom got the idea when walking through the flower section in Whole Foods a few years ago. My mother use to be in charge of making the arrangements, but then my sister took over. Check out our pretty Thanksgiving table will all the yummy food!!
My sister was kind enough to let me document the process of the center piece creation this year. So here we go!
What you need:
- ~27 Yellow Roses
- 6 bags of whole cranberries
- 3 square vases
Place the cranberries in the square vases and add water (but not all the way to the top).
Remove the leaves from the rose stems and hold it up to the vase to determine how much stem to cut off. Cut off the stem.
Push the rose into the vase between the cranberries. Then rinse and repeat!! Each vase will hold about 9 roses depending on the size of the vase.
After you’ve put in all the roses add additional cranberries and water as needed so they are almost to the very top of the vase. In this end this is what you get.
As you can see we miss counted the yellow roses this year and had to through in a few red ones. I think it still looks pretty cute!
Happy Holidays and DIY!
