Have you ever wondered how florists get their flowers blue, pink, or green? We’ve got the secret, and all you need is food coloring!
Looking for that extra special touch for your next party, baby shower, or wedding? These flowers are just the right thing to add that extra pop of color! Arrange a blue rose or two amongst white roses for a unique twist on a traditional bouquet! This works with any white flowers, although some take longer to pick up the color than others. The secret to getting the flowers a beautiful color is in something we all have lying around – food coloring!
1) Vases, glasses, or jars
3) Food coloring
4) White flowers (roses, daisies, carnations, etc.)
To begin, trim off the ends of your flowers. Cut them at an angle. This helps the flower absorb the water better, thus helping it absorb the color.
Fill your glasses or vases with water.
Add a few drops of food coloring to each vase and place your flowers in as well.
Note: Some flowers take longer to change colors than others. Roses can change color overnight, but daisies can take up to two weeks. Plan ahead if you want to use these for a special event.
