As I prepare flowers for another wedding this weekend, I think about last week’s flowers. I feel so blessed to be creating bouquets for some pretty special ladies. They are thoughtful, compassionate, and giving. My part in their special day is a small one, but one that hopefully gives them beauty in life, God’s creation in color, green, petals, and foliage. Carrying a bouquet signifies a new beginning, everlasting love, and hope. Thank you to these brides for trusting me with a special place in your day! It is a true honor! #beautifulbride #photocred @bmcclung_ #indybride #indybridal #indyflorist #indyfloraldesign #indygrammers #perfectweddingguideindy @pwgindy @hillcrestcountryclubindy

True story: I think because I grew up with eucalyptus smelling soap, I’ve always loved working with it. Alllll the different varieties.

1. Remove any leaves that have dropped under the water line in your vase.

2. Change the water every couple of days. Best practice is to dump out that old water and put in fresh, clean, cold water. This one small step makes a huge difference!

3. Rinse the vase, rinse the stems. Additionally, we like to rinse the vase a few times before putting in the final round of new, fresh water. This helps wash away any leftover “gunk” on that dirty rim around the vase where the water sat. You can also run the flower stems under fresh water to eliminate any additional buildup.

4. If you don't have a floral food packet, no worries. Make some DIY plant food to nourish your budding bouquet. Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with 2 tablespoons of white sugar and add the mixture to the water before replacing the flowers.

5. Avoid extremes in temperature. Just like humans, flowers aren’t happy if they get too cold or too hot. Avoid putting your flowers in direct contact with the fan of a blowing, cold air conditioner or near a drafty door on cold winter days. Also avoid putting your flowers near overly warm places, such as on or near a heater.

That’s really all it takes! These are very easy and effective steps for getting your flowers to last. No need for aspirin, flower food, or any other man-made substance. However, if you are feeling a bit experimental, add a tiny drop of bleach into the fresh water to further help ward off any bacteria.

My first wedding this year, wayback in April 🌈 Photo by @caosulli I got to work with fellow Indy florist, Katie, from @stemsflowertruck on this one!! She did all the planning and I provided the florals for her sister’s lovely spring ceremony. If you ever need a sweet bouquet check out Katie’s flower truck!!
