The perfect flower arrangement starts with beautiful, fragrant, fresh flowers. And lots of them!
Tip 1: Let your flowers bloom at home. When selecting flowers, choose a variety that are just before bloom, so you can enjoy them for as long as possible! You can mix and match varieties and colors, but be sure to select flowers that are in season for peak freshness and longevity.
Tip 2: When you arrive home, you will want to cut the flower stems on a diagonal, and peel off any additional leaves on the stem that will crowd the vase.
Tip 3: Choose a pretty vase! From bold blues to clear and cool, lively prints to interesting shapes, your vase selection matters. Don’t worry about matching it to your space or your flowers; just pick what you like. Be sure to select a vase that complements the height of your flowers and isn’t too small or large for your flower selection.
Tip 4: Refresh the vase water every few days to maximize the life of your arrangement.
Flowers in the home can cultivate creativity, improve memory, and have a positive effect on your mood. Enjoy your flowers (and these added benefits)!
