If you have a bouquet, make sure to give them a fresh cut right before you put them into a vase of water. This opens up the stems and allows them to hydrate.
If you have a vase, you are set to go! Our designers gave the flowers a fresh cut right before putting them into the vase.
If you are DIY-ing your own vase, be sure to remove all foliage that might fall below the water line. Foliage in the water will cause mold.
Don't forget to make sure all the stems are in water!

Room temperature water is great! Do not add ice or use warm water. This can cause the flowers to go into

When the flowers arrive at their destination it is time to prep them for hydration and storage.
Begin removing the plastic wrapping and rubber bands from the flowers. This allows them to open without being to crowded.
Your last step before hydration is to remove all foliage that might fall below the waterline in your containers. Foliage below the waterline will cause mold.

All the flowers will need to be re-cut at a 45° angle to ensure they hydrate efficiently. Room temperature water is great! Do not add ice or use warm water. This can cause the flowers to go into shock.
