Arrangement Care


A little extra care will make a significant difference in the life of your flowers. Keep the vase filled to the top with clean water. There is no need for you to add anything but fresh water.  To keep your entire arrangement looking fresh, simply pluck fading flowers off the stem.  If your arrangement is in a basket or a shallow dish, please keep the floral foam saturated. Keep your arrangement in a cool place and out of direct sunlight; 65 to 70 degrees is optimal. Keep away from heating or cooling vents, fans, and radiators.

Seasonal Flowers


If our floral designers are out of a particular decorative element, i.e. a specific basket, vase, plush, etc., they may substitute a similar element of equal or greater value. It is our policy to reach out and get approval from the customer before any substitutions are made. Due to delivery time restraints, if we cannot get in contact with you the florist will use their discretion to decide. We select the most creative florists to be on our team who professionally recreate our designs based on their creative interpretation. The "look and feel" of our arrangements featured will remain the same, with our florists paying careful attention to overall shape, size, style, and color combinations. Our florists will use only the freshest flowers, and so will make substitutions depending on seasonal and regional availability. In single-variety arrangements only, variety will take preference over color. For instance, if a florist is out of "yellow tulips," they will substitute another color of tulips, not another yellow flower.
