Flower Tip Tuesdays: Roses!

Today we're sharing some helpful tips on how to care for your beautiful roses!

1) Upon arrival, trim at least 1 inch off each stem (roses & 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) Roses have a natural security system! Their thorns keep away predators, and their outer petals - "guard petals" - serve as amazing protection during transit! Upon arrival, guard petals may appear brownish. After hydrating your stems for 2+ hours, carefully peel off any brownish guard petals to reveal the beautiful petals underneath!

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!
