Flower Tip Tuesdays: Arrange Your Blooms Like a Florist!
Today we're sharing some helpful tips on how to arrange your blooms like a florist!
1) Upon arrival, trim at least 1 inch off each stem on an angle. Trimming on an angle allows for more surface area for the flowers to drink the water.
2) Fill a clean vase ¼ full with fresh water + flower food, or a creative at home flower solution! (If you run out of flower food: adding soda, vinegar, or even aspirin to your vase can help prolong your flowers’ life!) Place stems in clean water. As leaves in the vase water can increase bacteria, remove any leaves below the water line.
3) Some people like to put flowers in one-by-one, i.e., one pink rose, one peach roses, one green, repeat... there is absolutely nothing wrong with this method! Bu Here at ReVased, we like to layer the vase by filling in all of one flower variety at the same time. We recommend starting with the greens, fillers and smaller flowers to create a base coat. For more texture and density, you can also add them at different heights. Then, add your "focal" flowers: the bigger and more colorful blooms, like roses.
