My daughter is using artificial flowers, but has requested real red roses on her cake. How will I be assured that the roses I order will have open heads on them? I’m sure you’ve seen the ones sold in stores that aren’t even open (those seem to be the ones I get every Valentines Day from hubby, even though I’ve told him over and over agin “I like LILLIES” so, I just smile and tell them they’re pretty) anyhow…I’m getting off topic. Thanks

Are you going to be purchasing them from a florist? If so, I suggest letting them know that that’s what you want and they can take it from there. If not, I suggest trial and error beforehand to see how long it will take for them to bloom so you can get the timing down for when to buy.

I second Miss Helen. I have requested open blooms in my bouquet. I like the way it looks and the texture it creates. good luck!

you can force a rose open by starting from the outside and just pushing the petals out with your thumb or finger. you will find that the petals goin in a circular/swirl sort of shape and you can even just slide your finger around pushing the petals out. super easy… there are lots of youtube videos up on how to do it. and trust me roses can handle it!
