One of the top questions we are asked from our customers is, “How do we care for our flowers?” and “How long will our arrangements last?” From a single bud, small arrangement or an abundance arrangement, just a little extra care can make a huge difference. Most floral arrangements last from 4 to 7 days, depending on the types of flowers used and the type of care they receive. Here are some specific tips to keep your flowers looking beautiful:

floral arrangements

  • Keep the vase filled or floral foam soaked with water containing flower food.

  • If the flower food solution becomes cloudy, replace it entirely.

  • If possible, recut stems by removing one or two inches with a sharp knife.

  • Use warm water when adding water to the vase or refilling it.

  • Keep flowers in a cool spot (65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit), away from direct sunlight.

  • Avoid heating or cooling vents, areas directly under ceiling fans, or on top of televisions or radiators.

  • Appliances such as televisions and radiators give off heat, causing the flowers to quickly dehydrate.
