Just in case you are up to arranging one for yourself, here are the steps of wrapping 99 rose bouquet.
First Step: Arrange roses in a spiral manner
It has to be in a spiral manner due to its long stem and flower. Otherwise, the hand bouquet would be very bulky and messy if not spirally arranged. This will result in a circle formation of the roses and making it handy once formed as a bouquet. In this manner also, mixing colors become easier and will let you have an initial look at how the bouquet would look like.
Second Step: Grip the binding point at about 30-40 cm from the rose top
Make sure to grip the binding point, so to keep the tightness of the roses. In order to maintain less distance between roses, one must tightly hold his grip into the binding point centimeters away from the rose top. As you add the roses one by one, the grip must be maintained or else the spiral formation will be destroyed and the bouquet becomes loose.
Third Step: Secure the binding point with plastic tape
To effectively maintain the tight needed, you can secure the binding point with plastic tapes, especially if you arrange different sets of colors on the bouquet. Like as mentioned, securing the binding point will maintain the close distance between roses and make it less bulky. This is one way of securing that tight in arranging the roses.
Fourth Step: Continue and add the outer layers with roses
By securing the binding point, adding roses on the outer layers will be easy and continuing the procedure will not be as difficult as you think it will be.
Fifth Step: Progressively secure the binding point
As you continue adding roses on the outer layers, it is always important to secure the binding point. Always remember that you are wrapping 99 pieces of roses. Securing the binding point will be a tough job and it is necessary to progressively secure that in order not to ruin the whole look of the bouquet.
Sixth Step: Cut the stems to the same length
Once you are done adding all the 99 roses, it is time for you to cut the stems into the same length. By using plastic tapes in securing the binding point, you can let the bouquet stand already and measure the length of the stems. To measure the stems on the same length, let the bouquet stand and see if the top is leveled the same as the others. If you think it is not, then cut the stems on those parts causing the tilted rose tops.
Seventh Step: Wrap cotton around the stems
Now it is time for you to wrap the stems with cotton. This is necessary to keep the moisture of the roses and maintain its freshness. You do not want the roses to easily dry, then one way to maintain its moisture is to wrap cotton around the stems. The cotton absorbs the water filled into the flower and making it last longer. By doing this, because of the absorbed water on the cotton, the moisture required is maintained keeping the roses rehydrated and fresh.
Eighth Step: Wrap the base with plastic
After wrapping it with cotton, next is to wrap the base with plastic. To avoid water spill and keep the water in tacked, the wrapping of the base with plastic has to be done. Use thick-layered plastic wrappers so to prevent from easily tearing off the plastic caused by the stems. Wrap it carefully and make sure that it will not easily fall off from the roses. Because once it falls off, imagine how messy the water would cause.
Ninth Step: Fill water
But how are we going the keep the moisture on which the roses require? That is to fill water on it and the use of the plastic and cotton takes in. Remember that keeping the roses fresh is important so to keep its elegant look and prevent it quickly drying out. If not done, the tilting and browning of the roses will hastily occur ruining the look of the roses. The 99 pieces of roses can be very expensive and keeping it lasts for days is a wise thing to consider before spending one. To make it happen, make sure that there is enough water that is filled in.
Last Step: Decorate the bouquet
