DIY Roses and Rosé Wreath

July 3, 2018

This summer, everything is coming up roses and rosé! And that means lots of fabulous party décor in today’s trendiest color-pink! Here’s a particularly pretty way to display your rosé while keeping it chill at the same time.

If you don’t have your own rose garden, or a blooming rose bush, don’t worry; roses are abundant this time of year…and priced right.

What you’ll need:

  • Oasis floral foam wreath base
  • Fresh cut roses
  • Fresh foliage
  • Shallow dish
  • Pedestal dish (for elevated display)

After you’ve soaked the floral foam wreath base thoroughly, place it on top of the shallow dish (pie plate) that you’ve placed on the pedestal plate. Start by creating the wreath shape with various sprigs of foliage. I was able to cut enough branches from the trees and shrubs in my backyard to use in this project!

Because the wreath is elevated, make sure that you insert your lower branches into the foam on an angle so that they hang over the dish.

Before inserting your roses, cut the stems to only about an inch long so that the stem fits nicely into the foam without going all the way through. You want the bottom of the stem to stay in the foam so that it will be continuously hydrated.

Continue filling in with greenery and roses until you have completely covered the entire wreath base.

When you’re ready to serve and enjoy your favorite rosé–mine is this delicious Pinot Noir rosé from our friends at Harry and David–fill the center dish with ice and add the bottles to keep them chilled between pours.

Want an even simpler version of this?

Use a faux rose wreath instead. Place the wreath on the table, add a bowl filled with ice in the middle, then fill it with a bottle of delicious, refreshing pink rosé!

Or meet in the middle and do a little of both:

Start with the pretty faux wreath base and add a few cuttings of fresh flowers and greenery to really make it pop!

Just insert the fresh flowers directly into the faux base.

As long as you just want them to look beautiful for a few hours, you don’t even need to worry about hydration–they’ll look great for the entire party. After the rosé is gone, you can remove the fresh cut roses and place them in a petite vase and enjoy them for a few more days!
