Congrats on your new bouquet! Here’s a few tips to make sure your posies live long and happy lives.
Pro Tip: Keep your little posies vertical until you’re ready to unwrap them.
Unwrap your little posies and remove excess leaves that will touch the water.
Grab that glass vase or recycled jar (for a rustic look) and scrub it with lots of soap and water. Make sure it’s so squeaky clean you can drink from it.
Fill your vase or jar with cool water.
Cut at least 1/2″ off the stems at a 45 degree angle to allow these thirsty little posies to drink more and make sure the stems don’t sit at the bottom of the vase. Give them a good mist.
Sit back and smell the roses, or sunflowers, or lillies, or snapdragons…..
Little Tip: Clean the vase, change the water, re-trim the stems, remove expired flowers, and mist them DAILY. This will help your little posies live longer.
