Help your flowers continue to shine in all their glory with these simple steps. Enjoy their healing power for days and weeks to come. Follow these steps and enjoy what your flowers have to offer.
Carefully unbox and/or unwrap your flowers from their packaging if you receive flowers in a box. Be careful when handling to avoid any damage.
If you receive flowers that are not already in water, use sharp, clean scissors to trim the bottom of each stem at an angle.
If you receive flowers that are not already in a vase, select a clean vase that is the right size for your flowers. Fill the bottom of the vase with clean room temperature water. It's important to put your flowers in water immediately, before you design with them.
Arrange the flowers in your vase, allowing each bloom to have enough space.
The flowers have been traveling, so it's important that your container is full with water. Check the water level on your container after 24 hours as flowers drink significantly more in the first 24 hours.
For long lasting flowers, empty all of the water out of the container and put all new fresh water in every other day. Avoid putting flowers in direct sunlight.
Enjoy! Place your flowers in the environment in which you can enjoy them the most. Let the flowers improve your mood, increase your happiness, spread positivity, and soothe your mind.
