How To Make Your Flower Bouquet Last Longer

February 14, 2015

I am obsessed with fresh flowers. If I could, I would have them in every single room of my home. Every time I go to Trader Joe’s I am always grabbing a bunch. Fresh flowers can get spendy so I always make sure to make them last as long as I can. With it being Valentine’s weekend I thought it would be the perfect time to share some tips on how to keep your flower bouquet lasting a long time. 
 First take the flowers out of the wrap and rubber bands. Set the flower food aside. Choose a vase you wish to use to determine how much to trim off the ends. It doesn’t have to be fancy. I love taking maison jars and painting the outside of them for a cool, rustic looking vase.

Next trim the flower stem ends at an angle (under water I suggest) to the desired length you want. Keep in mind you will trim ends a couple more times in the upcoming days. Trim off any green leaves you want removed. 

Next take your vase and fill a quarter or so with warm water. Just make sure the water is high enough to cover the ends. Next add about a 1/4 of a packet of flower food, if the flowers came with that. Save the rest for later. Arrange the flowers how you wish. 
 Set your flowers by a window in order to get enough natural light. 
-Make sure you change your water daily. Add the flower food each time. 
-Trim your ends every other day. One time I thought my roses where almost dead and I trimmed the ends and the whole bunch came back to life!
