Calling all witches and warlocks - something wicked this way comes! If you're haunting for a haute couture All Hallows' Eve, look no further than our Ghoulishly Glam vase. We've styled some of our favorite, moody, midnight-hued blooms in a cauldron of a vase fit for Winifred Sanderson herself. Follow along for some of our top tips below to keep your flowers looking well through any witching hour - no hocus pocus required!
Trimming 101: Once you've removed your flowers and vase from your box, put down your broomstick and grab some sharp kitchen shears or scissors. You'll need to give your stems a quick trim before placing them in your vase. We like to trip the steps so that the first blooms start 1/2" to 1" above the lip of the vase. Pro Tip: Even if you like the height of your flowers we still recommend trimming at least 1/2" off the ends. This will ensure your flowers can drink water most efficiently! You'll also notice your arrangement comes with a handy, dandy tape line. This helps the flowers fold their design as they travel. Once you chop 'em, it's time to drop those blooms into the vase we shipped with your arrangement (once you fill it 3/4 of the way with cool tap water, of course). Just before you lower the blooms fully into the water, use your scissors to snip the tape line. Release and admire! We shipped this arrangement designed to bewitch without any effort on your part, but feel free to rearrange any flowers or foliage to your liking.
Work your magic! We've carefully made, wrapped and shipped this arrangement to you but flowers are flowers! See a broken stem? No need to get hexing! We always ship a few extra stems for these "just in case" situations. Once you trim and drop your stems into the vase, remove any broken or dead heads! Dead flowers work a little black magic of their own and will cause your healthy flowers to expire faster!
Your flowers have traveled many miles and hours to get to you - dehydration is more than normal! There's no magic potions needed here to revive them - tap water will do! Signs that your blooms need a beverage: Drooping, heavy heads! Trim your stems as instructed and get them into a cool drink of water. Give your stems a few hours to rehydrate. 99% of the time you'll find that any sleepyheads will be looking alive, awake, alert, and enthusiastic!
