Hand Tied Bouquet
To provide your bouquet longevity we listed down some tips and tricks for you to follow.
1. Upon receiving your flowers don’t forget to appreciate their beauty and sweet thoughts. Remove the wrapping paper but keep the wires/strings that holds the flowers together.
2. Fill an appropriate-sized clean vase with lukewarm water. Water that is too hot or too cold may shock the flowers and can result to premature wilting. Ideally, the water level should be almost full or until all stems are reaching the water source.
3. Your bouquet comes with a flower food packet. Although, all floral arrangements are well hydrated and fed before we deliver, we recommend you to use the flower food for longer lasting flowers. Please follow instructions at the back of the pouch.
4. Firmly hold your bouquet and cut the wires/string. With a pruning shears or pairing knife cut the stems in an angle. The angle makes a larger surface from which the flower can drink, as well as it prevents the stem from sitting right on the bottom of the vase.
5. Immediately place your flower stems after cutting. Enjoy!
For dehydrated blooms:
1. Remove the affected stem from the arrangement, cut the stem in an angle.
2. Fill a basin or your sink with lukewarm water approximately 2-3 inches.
3. Lay the flower horizontally making sure the end of the stem is submerged.
4. Let it soak for an hour. Remove and gently shake to remove excess water.
5. By now it should be bouncy and strong. Re-cut the ends and place it back to your vase.
-Change the water and re-cut the ends of your flowers in an angle every other day for longevity.
-We recommend keeping flowers away from direct heat and drafts
-Ideally you want to keep the flowers at room temperature or in a cooler place for longevity
- If you are moving the flowers to another vase, make sure to remove any decaying foliage from the arrangement.
-Other things that may affect flowers are fruits and vegetables especially bananas and cigarette smoke.
