  • Glass or crystal pedestal cake dish
  • Florist's foam and clay
  • 1 or 2 bunches of red sweetheart roses

Instructions:

1. Cut florist's foam and mount it on the center of the pedestal cake dish. Soak the foam thoroughly in water.

2. Cut rose stems to about 3 inches in length. Insert the rose stems into the florist's foam, spacing the roses about 3 inches apart.
