Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
Flower Care Instructions
How can I make my flowers last longer?
Certain varieties of cut flowers last longer than others. Carnations, for example, can remain vibrant for long periods. Roses have a shorter vase life, but are prized for their special and delicate beauty. When buying flowers, be sure to ask your florist how long you should expect your arrangement to last. Whatever variety you choose, a little TLC will go a long way to keep your blooms looking fresh longer. Here are a few handy tips that can help add days to their beauty!
Essentials for your flowers
Keep them in a cool spot (65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit; 18 to 22 degrees Celsius), away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, direct drafts from a ceiling fan, and the tops of televisions or radiators. (Appliances like televisions give off heat, causing flowers to dehydrate.)
When your flowers arrive in wet foam
Keep the floral foam soaked in water containing the floral food added by the designers. Simply add a few drops of Clorox to the water that you add.
When your flowers are arranged in water
Keep the vase filled with water. Simply add a few drops of Clorox to the water that you add..
If the solution becomes cloudy, replace it entirely. If possible, recut the stems by removing one to two inches with a sharp knife..
Remove leaves that will be below the waterline. Leaves in water will promote bacterial growth that can harm the flowers.
When your flowers have woody stems and branches
Cut the stem with sharp pruning shears. Place in warm water containing fresh floral food or a few drops of Clorox to help promote flower opening and to keep the water clean.
What does floral food or Clorox do and why use it?
Floral food is a combination of additives that help to nourish the flowers and discourage bacteria from growing in the water. It is one of the best—and easiest—ways to extend the life of your flowers. It is very important to follow the directions on the package correctly. If you do not have an floral food you can simply add a few drops of water to a quart of water and we have found that to work just as well. Be careful not to get the Clorox on your clothes and you only need a few drops to do the job.
We strive to exeed your expectations with every order. We appreciate your feedback.
