Florets - Floral Quote - # 111 - by Carly Cylinder



"If I had to give just one piece of advice, it would be this: Change the water in the vase at least every couple days. And if not every couple days, then at least once during the lifetime of the arrangement. Flowers thrive on fresh water. To refresh the water in a small-to-medium arrangement, place the vase under the faucet in your kitchen sink and run the water so that it flushes out the old water. Flushing out your vase under the faucet refreshes the water while keeping your arrangement intact. For taller vases, carefully tilt the arrangement to pour out the old water, and refresh with new water."

Ingrid, that is one lesson that I've definitely learned over the years, along with removing leaves that would be below the water level in the vase.

This arrangement is quietly beautiful...the bowl and dish underneath are such a great choice for the flowers. xo
