Flower Care Basics 

Proper care and handling of your bouquets can significantly impact their longevity. Upon receiving your flowers, remove any packaging and trim the stems at an angle before placing them in a clean vase filled with fresh water. Remember to change the water every few days, recutting the stems each time to allow for better water absorption.

Hydration Techniques 

To keep your arrangement looking fresh, consider adding floral food to the water in your vase. We offer packets of flower food with each bouquet, providing essential nutrients to prolong the life of your blooms. Furthermore, misting your flowers with water can help them retain moisture and stay vibrant longer, especially during dry weather conditions.

Optimal Placement

Finding the right spot for your floral arrangements is key to preserving their beauty. Choose a location away from direct sunlight, heat sources, and fruit bowls, as these can quicken the wilting process. We recommend displaying your arrangement in a cool area to help them last longer. Additionally, avoid placing them near vents, fans, or open windows as the airflow can dry out the flowers faster.

Creative Reuse Ideas 

Once your flower arrangements have reached the end of their prime, consider repurposing them in creative ways. We encourage you to dry the flowers to create potpourri or pressed flower art. You can also use them in DIY projects like handmade cards or home décor. Embracing sustainability by finding new purposes for your flowers is a wonderful way to extend their beauty even after they've faded. 

By following these simple yet effective tips, you can prolong the life of your flower arrangements and continue to enjoy their beauty. Order flowers online today and experience the art of preserving flowers firsthand. Let us help you create lasting memories with our exquisite floral designs.
