5 CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Here are a few short recommendations for keeping your flowers looking fresh now that you've received your bouquet. Keep in mind that your blooms may take up to 2-3 days to reach their full potential.

1. Trim the Stems

When you've finished unwrapping your bouquet, cut the stems at a 45-degree angle. If you have shears, we recommend using them to ensure a cleaner cut. Every couple of days, trim the stems.

2. Clean Water Daily

One of the best ways to get the most out of your flowers is to change the water on a daily basis with fresh, cold water. The water should appear to be drinkable! Remove any leaves or foliage from the stems that fall below the waterline of the vase to keep the water clean.

3. Use the Flower Food

Add your vase with the flower food provided and follow the instructions on the packet (this helps your flowers last longer). If you need to make your own or are out, you can make your own at home by combining a few drops of bleach and a pinch of sugar in fresh water.

4. Keep in Indirect Light

Place your flowers in the vase and keep them in the shade. If you want your blooms to open up faster, perhaps for a special occasion, use warm water to gently coax them open.

5. Remove Stems as Needed

Each stem will have a different vase life. As the blooms fade, remove them from the bouquet to keep the other blooms fresher for longer. Enjoy your bouquet's subtle changes as it ages gracefully each day!
