Here are the materials you will need:
- Floral tape or zip tie
Step 1: Trim and hydrate your blooms
Using flower cutters, trim the bottom of the flower stems to the desired length. Then, place the blooms in water for about 2-4 hours prior to arranging. Next, add a packet of Chrysal Flower Food. Chrysal Flower Food adds nutrients to the water which can make your flowers shinier, healthier, and even make them last longer.
IMPORTANT: LEAVE THE CORRUGATED WRAP ON
PRO TIP: Cut the flower stems at an angle, this allows the flowers to drink the maximum amount of water. If they appear to be slightly wilted, follow these steps (rose, gypsophilia, hypericum, eucalyptus) to revive your beautiful blooms.
Step 2: Prepare your flowers
Start by removing the corrugated wrap and de-leafing the roses.
PRO TIP: Removing leaves is a great trick for ensuring petals get the most hydration possible. Leaves tend to absorb a large amount of moisture that should be going to the petals of the flower instead. Additionally, removing the leaves from below the waterline prevents premature wilting of the blooms.
Step 3: Arrange the Blooms
Start your arrangement by taking two red roses as your base, and work from there in a circle. Add a rose, gypsophila, hypericum, and eucalyptus in a circular motion. Repeat until you have your bouquet complete.
Pro Tip: Always place your largest blooms first while holding the bouquet in your hands, so that the stems can slide easily into place.
Step 4: Place the floral tape or zip tie around the top portion of the stems to secure it.
Step 5: Last Step!
Now place your arrangement in your chosen vase filled with water and Chrysal Flower Food.
Step 6: Voila!
Your Valentine’s Day bouquet is ready for you to give!
Don't let time pass by and miss your chance to show that special someone you care!
Whether it is in person or from afar, with these beauties you'll surely touch their heart!
