Flower Tip Tuesdays: Placement Matters!

Flower Tip Tuesdays: Placement Matters!

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) Let's talk about the right climate for flowers! Flowers are delicate, and putting them in the right place makes all the difference. Try to avoid intensely hot or cold spots- i.e., don't put your blooms near the stove, the heater, or right by an air conditioner. Instead, aim for a cool space that's not in direct sunlight. Follow these tips, trim your stems daily, and change your water often for longer lasting blooms!

4) Say cheese! You’re a flower designer, and the world needs to know! Post a pic of your design on social media and tag us @revasedflowers for a chance to be featured!
