For those of you who want to enter an arrangement in the 2012 Spokane Rose Show, or simply want to make something nice to show off your mini roses indoors, here are a couple of articles you may want to take a look at.
The Tri-City Rose Society website (Richland, Pasco, and Kennewick, WA) has an excellent article Rose Arranging 101 – Miniature Rose Arrangements written by by Linda Kerkof, ARS accredited arrangement judge and Tri-City Rose Society member.
Ms. Kerkof succinctly describes the requirements for all arrangements and the all-important aspects of scale and proportion with very helpful illustration. The article is rounded out with several photographs of miniature arrangements from Tri-City’s 2000 and 2001 shows.
Another good article is Creating Arrangements Using Miniature Roses, by Robin Rosenberg, also available as in pdf format . Ms. Rosenberg discusses the versatility of miniature arrangements, the importance of scale, selecting appropriately sized mini roses, and containers.
