Aren’t these absolutely gorgeous? I have a soft spot for roses. Any kind. They’re just so precious!
And yes, these are real flowers. They start out as cream roses. Over the course of 12-24 hours, they turn rainbow-colored by putting a drop in food coloring in their water one at a time, and as the roses soak up the water, the petals take on the colors of the food dye. Apparently, they don’t know how to control what petals get what colors; that appears to be completely random. I would imagine you could do this at home, if you wanted!
Check out this awesome video, too! (Don’t worry, it’s short!)
