Shipping Instructions:

Before you box your flowers up to ship, make sure to hydrate them first.

For bouquets arranged in green oasis holders, pour cool fresh water over the green oasis holder, giving the flowers a drink before you ship them.

For bouquets with open stems, cut 1” of the bottom of the stems, and wrap the stem with some drenched paper towels, then wrap the paper towels with tin foil to hold in the moisture.

  1. Find a sturdy box at least twice as large as your flowers.
  2. Securely tape (duct tape) 2 ice packs to the bottom of the box.
  3. Place tin foil over the top of the ice packs. You want to separate ice from flowers.
  4. Placed dry crumbled newspaper over the top of the tin foil.
  5. Mist the flowers with cool water then place them in a plastic bag (leave bag open).
  6. Place the flowers in the center of the box, and then place dry crumbled newspaper around the flowers.
  7. Place any paper items (invitation, registration form, check) inside a zip lock bag, and place them inside the box.
