Try not to bump or touch your flowers. Some petals are very fragile & are susceptible to bruising.
Try not to expose your flowers to the sun for excessive periods of time. The sun initiates photosynthesis which can cause over blooming & wilting. The sun can also scorch your flowers, causing irreversible damage.
IDEAL FLOWER TEMPERATURE
Flowers like to be stored between 35ºF & 55ºF. They will last longest in this temperature range.
Your flowers can actually freeze in temps below 32ºF. Frozen flowers can’t be revived & some petals will even show frozen damage by turning a dark brownish color.
Don’t leave your flowers out in the heat - this includes leaving them in the car. Hot temps will wilt your blooms.
Flowers need to drink water. Make sure to give them plenty of fresh, clean, cool water. In warmer weather, you can even spritz your blooms once or twice day with cool water from a clean spray bottle. 1 or 2 spritzes will do.
Try not to lay your bouquet down on its side. When not being held, place your bouquet back in its vase of water so you don’t accidentally damage any flowers or foliage.
BOUTONNIERES, CORSAGES, & FLOWER CROWNS
These designs can actually be stored in the fridge as long as there are no fresh fruits or veggies inside. Fruits & vegetables emit ethanol gas that encourages flowers to open prematurely. Place your designs towards the front of the fridge to help ensure a more regulated temperature so they don’t accidentally get too cold in the back & freeze.
LOVE YOUR FLOWERS FIERCELY!

CUT FLOWER ARRANGEMENT
1. Flowers like to drink! Keep the vase full of fresh water & check the water level daily.
2. Don't place flowers in direct sunlight. In extreme heat, or extreme cold.
3. Once a day, mist your flowers with cool, clean water from a spray bottle. A spritz or two will do!
4. Every few days, flush the old water out of the vase by placing the arrangement in the sink & letting cool water overflow the vase until the old water is replaced with new water. This helps to get rid of any bacteria growth.
