How to Make a Sparkling Cider Flower Arrangement


Making heartfelt gifts for special occasions helps you express your creativity while putting together attractive pieces. Decorative and sentimental gifts include floral arrangements. A sparkling cider flower arrangement does this very thing. A nonalcoholic version of the champagne arrangement, a sparkling cider arrangement provides a formal appearance for virtually any special event.

Step 1

Fill the bottom of the low-profile wicker basket with a 3-inch layer of substrate, which may include shredded colored tissue paper, marbles or even individually wrapped candies.

Step 2

Place a bottle of sparkling cider into the center of the basket. Anchor it into the substrate. For a larger basket, use two or more bottles of cider lined up side by side.

Step 3

Place six of the large bloomed roses as close to the cider bottle as you can get. Frame them around the bottle.

Step 4

Surround the circle of rose blossoms with an assortment of accent flowers such as baby's breath or black-eyed Susans. Use 20 to 40 small accent flowers.

Step 5

Place the six remaining rose blossoms strategically in varying parts of the accent flora. These will create splashes of color and scent to the cushion of small blooms surrounding the other roses and sparkling cider bottle.

Step 6

Embellish the basket containing the attractive sparkling cider arrangement by tying a length of silk ribbon around the top opening of the basket. End the length of ribbon into a long-looped bow.
