How to Decorate with Roses, According to a Pro
Valentine’s Day may be the day of a dozen roses, but a true rose aficionado will want to find out how to keep cut roses fresh so those gorgeous blooms can stay around for as long as possible. Keeping fresh flowers around the house can boost moods and give the whole space a positive feel, and learning how to arrange roses in a vase (or any kind of flower in a vase) is a great life-skill you can show off every time you host.
Anyone keeping roses around for an extended period of time—or turning to companies such as Rose Box, which ships roses preserved to last one year without any maintenance—will want to find out how to make the blooms part of their home, rather than a seasonal add-on. Incorporating roses into the home will make the whole space a little more cohesive, while displaying your favorite blooms front and center.
Whether you plan on replenishing a vase of roses throughout the year or want to invest in an arrangement that will last all year long, you’ll want to find ways to make the cut flowers feel organic and natural in the home as part of the décor. To find out the best tips for incorporating roses into a space, Real Simple spoke with Rose Box co-founder Dana Dadush for easy tips anyone can try to make these blooms look and feel at home wherever you display them.
