Tutorial: How to Use an Orange as a Vessel for Flowers


July 2017

Fruits are used in floral arrangements in many ways whether they are incorporated into the actual arrangement, used as a vase filler or as the vessel itself. In this tutorial we’ll show you how to create your own orange vessel filled with a simple floral arrangement. We used these as decorations for individual place settings that could be taken home by each guest. You can see the full table design HERE.

Supplies Needed:
Oranges (you will be using ½ orange for each arrangement)
Wet floral foam
Green roses
Assorted greenery
Floral Knife
Knife for cutting orange in half
Melon Baller

1. Start with oranges. You will need ½ orange for each arrangement
2. Cut oranges in half.
3. Run knife along the edge first and then hollow orange half with a melon scooper.
4. Scoop all pulp out using a melon scooper.

5. Place soaked and cut to size wet floral foam in each orange half.
6. Gather roses and greenery. We choose green roses as a nice compliment to the orange.
7. Begin placing two roses in each half and continue covering floral foam with greenery.
8. And here you have a wonderful small arrangement for a place setting that could easily be used as a take home gift. How fun is that?
