Flower Tip Tuesdays: Calla Lilies!
Today we're sharing some helpful tips on how to care for your calla lilies!
1) Upon arrival, trim at least 1 inch off each stem (calla lilies & every stem in the bouquet!), 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) As gorgeous as they are, resist the urge to touch the flowers themselves as you're trimming the stems or admiring your bouquet. If you need to work closely with the flowers, try wearing gloves and holding each flower by the stem--this helps avoid bruising.
4) Say cheese! Post a pic of your design on social media and tag us @revasedflowers for a chance to be featured!
