This Grinch hand-tied bouquet has been lovingly designed by all the Whos down in Whoville (read: Farmgirl makers) with all sorts of grinch-rific blooms - you might see some red-nosed roses, ornamental orchids and festive fingers of fir trees hiding in there! We’ve searched high and low with the help of our festive farmer friends to jam pack this seasonal favorite full of the freshest and fa-la-la-loveliest finds!
Grab a vase and some sharp kitchen shears and follow along below for our top tips to keep your Grinch bouquet looking awfully wonderful! And of course don’t forget to show your #fgflove off on Instagram! There’s a lot of heart that went into that burlap wrap, but it’s time to make like your presents on December 25th and get unwrapped (save us some candy from your stocking, will ya?)! Leave the twine wrap on until after the next part.
Next, shake it out! Farmgirl loves a good photo op! Get your bouquet ready for its close up by giving it a zhush! Firmly but gently grasp the stems and give the bouquet a gentle shake! This will help to loosen up the blooms that have been compacted during shipment. Pro tip: grab the stems and gently rotate them to gather all the flowers at the front of the arrangement (where the camera is)!
Even if your flowers are the just right height for your vase use your shears to give the stems a quick trim (a 1⁄2” will do)! Fill your vessel 3⁄4 of the way with cool tap water and gently lower the bouquet in. Just before you release the stems, undo the twine wrapping. Pro Tip: pick a vase with a mouth opening no bigger than three or four inches in diameter. This will help the bouquet to keep its shape once placed!
