Tips for Taking Care of your Fresh Valentine Bouquet

A loved one just gave you a gorgeous bouquet of fresh quality flowers from a professional florist. Here are some floral design tips so you can enjoy them even longer!

They don’t like extreme conditions ~ Don’t put them in an over heated room, near a furnace vent or fireplace, or in direct sunlight! In contrast don’t put them in a drafty area.
They are thirsty ~ Add water as needed (about every other day), and use cold water for better water uptake and to reduce bacteria growth.
Be sure the vase is clean ~ Check to make sure there are not leaves below the water line, and change the water as necessary using cold water (every 2-3 days).
Feed your flowers ~ When changing the water use the floral packet provided by your florist to reduce bacteria growth, encourage buds to open & lengthen the life of your flowers.
Cutting the stems ~ Some flowers continue to grow in water such as the tulip. When trimming them cut 1″ at an angle with a sharp clean knife of shears to not crush or damage the stems which can hinder the water intake.

Enjoy!

Select a Bouquet with Meaning for your Valentine

As unquestionably one of the most recognized “love & romance” holidays approaches, think about expressing your feelings with a bouquet that has meaning. Most of us think about color first. As red represents beauty, desire, confidence and has more than a dozen other associations, white reflects innocence, purity, etc., and pink has it’s own variety of inferences from “grace” to “meet me by moonlight”! However, each type of bloom also has meaning and can deliver a heartfelt message to your loved one on Valentine’s Day or any time you want to send a meaningful arrangement from the heart. See our list of Flower Meanings to get started, or stop in the shop to work with one of our designers and customize your bouquet with your own sentiments and give your loved one the most beautiful Valentine flowers in San Diego!




All That Glitters – Doesn’t Have to Be Gold

Trust the experts on flowers in San Diego to transform any holiday arrangement into something extraordinary by adding a sparkling metallic touch. And, not just gold! Be sure to consider using silver, deep copper or bright bronze tones for a current stylish look. You can use metallic paints to spray everything from fall leaves and branches to pods and artichokes. Use your imagination and artfully incorporate these sparkling gems into your arrangements to give them a not so ordinary sophisticated look.
To make these metallic decorations really pop, use them with deeper tones of blooms and foliage. As part of your holiday table-scape consider a neutral backdrop of almond or sand to keep everything balanced and not too overdone!
