Key to My Heart Valentine’s Day Bouquet
- 8 – 9 cream and pink bi-coloured roses (e.g. Star Ambience, Bella Vita, Prime Time, Raspberry Ice)
- 10 – 12 ranunculus in blush pink, hot pink and dark berry
- 5- 6 stems white baby breath
- green raffia or ribbon
- antique mini skeleton keys
- green floral wire stubs
- gold spray paint
- old newspaper to protect the work surface
- florist’s knife
- wire cutters
1) Wire and paint the keys
Wrap the end of a wire stub a few times around a skeleton key. Set up 10 to 20 small and medium-side keys this way. Cover the worksurface with old newspaper and spray paint the wired keys with gold spray paint. Give the tin (can) a good sake before you start and spray from a distance of 20 cm (8 in). Let the keys dry completely.
2) Prep the flowers
After allowing the flowers to rest in fresh water for 2 hours, prep the roses by removing all but the top leaves. Cut the baby breath into smaller segments, and cut away the buds of the ranunculus.
3) Building the bouquet
To create the centre of the bouquet, pick-up a large rose and gather baby breath stems evenly around. Going in a circular motion, add the next round of flowers, alternating between roses and ranunculus. Arrange the stems at an angle, forming a spiral. Add another layer of baby breath, roses, and ranunculus.
4) Finish the bouquet
Shorten the stems to the same length. Then insert the wired keys throughout the arrangement. Using green raffia or ribbon, tie the bouquet tightly together in the middle. Finally, cut the stems of the roses and ranunculus at a flat angle, which helps these flowers to absorb more water and stay fresh longer.
Materials: roses, ranunculus, baby breath
Tips for long vase life
Change the water and re-cut the stems every other day. When replenishing the water, also pour the vase or jug with hot water to eliminate bacteria.
You can easily create variations of the Valentine’s Bouquet following the techniques explained in the DIY above. We created a version with yellow and pink ranunculus, French tulips, and white anemones. Instead of baby breath, we used soft ruscus.
