Floral Spotlight No. 5 :: Sally Holmes Garden Rose

We never met a flower we didn’t like, and while we fawn over floral arrangements that incorporate a variety of blooms, we also think there is a simplicity and beauty in choosing just one type of flower to use in your bouquet or centerpieces. In this series, we highlight the unique charm of individual flowers, and we show just how lovely they can be when given the chance to take center stage.

If you’ve ever visited a botanical garden in full bloom, you’ll know that there are more varieties of roses than you could ever have imagined—all varying in size, shape and fragrance. One of our favorite roses is the Sally Holmes. It’s a delicate and robust climbing garden rose that’s not only classically beautiful, but a soft, romantic choice for just about any floral arrangement.

Adding these delicate rose buds is such a simple and elegant touch to this place setting!

Roses have long been seen as the quintessential cut bloom, and for good reason — they’re beautiful!

We tried this with two different linens (Sissy in coral and Essex in yellow), and couldn’t decide which we liked better – so we’re sharing both!
