Measuring Aisle Petals

I decided to get a second use out of all those peach roses we used for the Peach Rose Color Study and do a study on how many roses it takes to line the aisle. I measured out a 12 feet long space and made the width 10 inches. I used to say the lining of the aisle would be 6″ wide on each side, but when I actually pulled out my measuring stick I realized it is closer to 8-10″ wide!

100 Roses spread over 24 inch wide by 12 foot long space.

Lessons Learned:

  • It takes at least 3 roses per foot to make an impact on the aisle (this is for lining the aisle, and not scattered down the center)
  • Looks better to layer the colors instead of doing all one color as it adds depth

    2. Brilliant Alicia! Thanks for providing a great visual for floral designers and brides. From now on this will be my go-to source for calculating aisle petals and a reminder that “a rose is a rose and each one costs the same no matter how you plan to use it.”

    7. Rockin’ the rose petals posts! It is such a source of confusion and frustration for florists and clients. When I calculated my first rose covered aisle, I used a one foot square tile, and came up with the formula of 3 roses per square foot was a fairly thick coverage. Thank you for your research on this. I will use these photos next time I get a request for petals.
