1. At home, keep your flowers in a vase of shallow water (2-3 inches) in the fridge before hanging them to transport to my studio. Remove all ribbon, charms, rosaries, or special keepsakes added to the arrangement before placing them in water.
2. Flowers must arrive at the studio on hangers as follows...The night before/ day of drop off, remove any excess water from the stems with a paper towel.
3. Take the flowers and hang them either one-by-one or in bunches (no more than 3 flowers per bunch) upside down from a regular clothes hanger using clips/clothespins, ribbon, string (whatever you have on hand that will hold them in place on the hanger). The additional greenery and sprigs should also be hung upside.
See photo below for an example.
4. Once all of the flowers and greenery have been attached to the hangers, keep in a dark, cool, indoor space with low humidity before your scheduled drop off.5. If you haven't already scheduled a drop off please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to do so.
The flowers listed above should be used as a guide. Please remember that flowers are a natural product, and each flower will press and age differently.
