- Fifty to seventy-five stems of a sturdy flower such as the rose flower.
- a jar or container.
- stem stripper
- one quarter inch (1/4″) Adhesive green floral tape
- a very sharp knife or stem cutter
Step 1: Preparing the Flowers:
- Remove excess thorns and foliage using a stem stripper or your hands, remove unattractive or damaged outer petals.
- Fill a bucket or sink with water, use a knife or a stem cutter to cut off the stems at angles of about two inches (2″) from the base while holding the stems underwater.
- With the stem submerged in water, drain the flowers for a few seconds, then place the flowers in a bucket half filled with cool water until it is ready for use.
- If you are making use of rose flower and the heads are not open yet, open up the blooms by putting the stems in a container of hot water. Do this for only a few minutes before using the roses.
- While working with the stems, allow them to remain long and then trim them to reduce their lenght when you have finished arranging them.
Step 2: Assembling the Flowers

- Put together 4 flowers at the same height in a square shape — they will all be at the centre of the assembly.
- Add the remaining flowers one after the other around the flowers at the centre so as to create a dome shape.
- While creating the dome shape, keep measuring it with your vase or container to determine the thickness of the assembly keep adjusting to produce an attractive overhang for the rose flowers over the corners of the containing vessels.

- If you desire, you can repeat the binding close to the end of the stems.
Step 4: Measuring the Center piece
- To determine the amount of stem you will need to cut off from the ends, hold the arrangement beside your container.
- Endeavour to trim the stems to the required length while cutting across at a suitable angle for better absorption of water.

- Place the arrangement gently into a vase.
