I’ve been LOVING all of this summer weather, not to mention all of the beautiful flowers! I love all types of flowers, but last week, my friend Bre and I went to a nearby Peony flower farm! We wanted to pick flowers there but they only sold it by the pot. But I went to Pike Place and got so many flowers to add the perfect color pop to my home decor. In fact, I found the perfect area to put my peonies, on my spring-updated bar cart! That being said, I like to keep my flowers for as long as possible, so today I am sharing a step-by-step guide on how to make flowers last longer!
Step 1: Fill a vase about two-thirds of the way full with lukewarm water.
Step 2: Add a packet of flower food or 2 tbs of sugar to the water and stir until everything is absorbed.
Step 3: Remove all lower leaves from flowers so there won't be any submerged in the water. (this will help keep the water fresh).
Step 4: Cut the stems at an angle while submerged in water. This allows for the stem to absorb more nutrients.
Step 5: Choose a cool location where the flowers don’t receive any direct sunlight or are around any cooling or heating vents. Air and sunlight cause them dry-out and die at a faster pace.
Step 6: Change the water every other day and re-cut the stems each time.
Step 7: Enjoy! Adding any types of flowers to your home decor is the perfect way to add a great color splash!
