Valentine’s Day Pink Roses & Twigs Centerpiece

Valentine’s Day is winter time which means you can get a lot of bare twigs to make this centerpiece.

This arrangement is made in a brown ceramic bowl, with a thin piece of floral foam (only about 2″ deep) down in the bottom of the container. The floral foam has been anchored to the container with a plastic pin holder, fixed with green floral fix, as it is not possible to anchor it to the container with tape. The foam is covered with a thin layer of green sisal, but reindeer moss or something similar would do.

Add a few pink spray carnations, evenly spaced, and quite low onto the foam. Use some gnarled twigs of Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus). These were well weathered, and had moss and lichen growing on them, which added to the effect! The twigs are arranged loosely in a dome shape. Finally, add some pink roses, arranged so that they nestle just inside the twigs, not too low, and not too high.
