My obsession with fresh cut flowers is no joke. There’s just something about fresh cut flowers that just adds a bit of sophistication and warmth to a space. And I take a more unofficial approach to arranging my floral blooms.
On any given day you will find fresh cut flowers around the townhouse. And over the years, I’ve picked up a few tricks to keep them fresh for longer. And I’m talking 10 days plus!
Here are my top five tips to keeping your freshly cut flowers looking gorgeous for days!
- Cut the ends of the stems before placing in water
- Remove extra leaves as it takes much needed water from the flowers
- To get a fuller texture in your blooms, get a mix bunch with different colors, blooms, and varied lengths
- Replace water every five days (you can add sugar or a little bit of coke); flowers love sweets, too
- Stop and smell them!
I hope you’re having great week!
