Flower Care

If your bouquet will not be shipped or delivered until the next day, please keep it in water in a cool place.  Flowers are very fragile.  Please keep them out of the heat and be careful when handling them.  We can enhance only to a point; how your flowers arrive will determine how well they will preserve.

  • Hand-tied bouquets have the stems exposed at the bottom which will need to be kept in 2-3 inches of water so they can drink.  A great place to put them is in the front of the middle rack in the refrigerator.  Most lettuce will freeze in the back of your fridge and so will your flowers (and the ribbon will dry).  If your bouquet is too large to stand in a vase of water, wrap the bottom of the stems with a wet paper towel and a plastic bag.  Try not to lay your round hand-tied down.  Prop up the stems as we don't want the flowers to bruise since this causes black spots during the preserving stage.
  • Cascading or hand-tied posy bouquets designed in an oasis (green foam) holder with the plastic handle will also need to be kept cold and hydrated.  Put them in the front of the refrigerator as soon as possible.  Water the oasis (green foam) and then spray lightly with water or the re-hydrating spray from your shipping kit.  Then lightly cover the bouquet with some plastic wrap.

If you have made a booking at least 2 weeks before your wedding, a special shipping kit with packing instructions will be sent to you.  Then, have a friend or family member who is in charge of packing and sending your bouquet, send it the very next day.  The sooner we receive the flowers, the fresher they are.  If you need to send your flowers without a booking, please refer to the packing instructions and we will be happy to preserve your memories at any time.
