Roses and Kale Basket

This unusual pairing features two items with similar budlike shapes: creamy-white roses and emerald-green ornamental kale.

Basket How-To
If your basket has gaps in its sides, weave a ribbon through the rungs. Next, tuck a plastic liner inside, and then trim a block of floral foam to fit. Soak the foam in water and set it in the liner. Push the kale and rose stems into it. Do the same with sprigs of pine around the edges. Finish by wrapping branches of pine around the handle, securing them with floral wire. The display will stay fresh for several days.
