Two Delicious Ways To Enjoy Flowers This Fall

The changing of seasons is an excellent time to experiment with new flavors, colors and fragrances. At your next fall get-together, consider bringing flowers together with a theme of roses. Decorate your table with a stylish bouquet of fall-inspired roses, and even infuse your meal or drinks with rose flavors. The floral experts at Mission Viejo Florist have some excellent suggestions for your next fall table.

Rustic fall roses never looked so pretty as in our Blazing Beauty Rose Bouquet. Salmon and coral roses combine to create a bright blushing display, hand-tied for rounded form and placed at an angle in a clear glass container with river rocks for a casual but elegant look.

Pair your gorgeous rose display with this Prosecco- Rose Cocktail and enjoy your guests’ pleasure at the sweet, light flavors.

Rose Syrup

makes one cup

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup water

1 cup dried (organic, pesticide-free) rose petals (or 2 cups fresh, organic and pesticide-free)

1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)

Begin by making a simple syrup by combining sugar and water in a small saucepan, simmering and stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add rose petals and continue to simmer on low heat for five minutes or so. Add lemon juice and remove pan from heat. Allow mixture to steep for approximately 30 minutes, then pour through a fine-mesh strainer to remove solids. Store in the refrigerator.

Prosecco-Rose Cocktail

2 tablespoons rose syrup (recipe above)

prosecco (or champagne)

Pour rose syrup into the bottom of a champagne flute and then slowly fill the remainder of the glass with prosecco.
