So even though my graduation party is not a Kentucky Derby party, it is definitely Kentucky Derby-inspired. I thought I’d bring you the tutorials just in time for this weekend’s derby. Today, I’m walking you through how to make the mini rose loving cups. They look darling, one to a place setting.
Rose Loving Cup Supplies
- Plastic loving cups (I ordered these 5-inch trophy cups from Amazon.)
- Floral foam
- Small faux roses
- Wire cutters
1 – Turn the loving cup over and press it cup side down into your floral foam.
The foam will completely fill the cup.
2 -Snip off the leaf stems, leaving roughly 2 inches of stem on each section of leaf. Arrange the leaves around the perimeter of the foam.
3 – Snip off the rose stems, leaving about two inches of stem.
4 – Insert the first rose in the center of the foam.
5 – Add more roses and/or leaves until you achieve the fullness you like.
And here’s a finished loving cup. I put one at each place setting.
