When my sister was married, I took the half-dead roses from her bouquet. At home, I rooted them by cutting off the heads, making a clean cut on the bottoms, dipping the fresh-cut bottoms in rooting hormone, and putting them in a pot that was half Perlite and half soil. I kept these moist until rooted and then planted them in a shaded location in my garden. This year, on her first anniversary, my sister received a gift that can never be replaced: 12 rose bushes from her wedding bouquet.
Just beautiful! This lovely rustic table setting is perfect for any backyard wedding, it can easily be setup in a Marquee as seen in this photo. Gorgeous lighting with the vintage hanging lights and the garland covering the top adds that special touch.
