As floral artisans, we understand the joy and beauty that a carefully crafted bouquet brings to any occasion. To ensure that your Posy Co creation stays as fresh and stunning as the day it was crafted, we've curated a guide tailored to our fellow flower enthusiasts. Let's delve into the secrets of maintaining the longevity and vibrancy of your floral masterpiece.

  1. Handpicked Freshness: Begin with the best by selecting a bouquet with vibrant, firm flowers. Our skilled florists rise early to choose the finest blooms from Brisbane's markets, ensuring your bouquet is a masterpiece of freshness from the start.

  2. Precision Pruning: Upon delivery, give your bouquet a fresh start by trimming the stems at a 45-degree angle. Use sharp scissors to create a clean cut, removing at least an inch from the bottom. This step enhances water absorption, keeping your flowers hydrated and lively.

  3. Tailored Vase Care: Place your bouquet in a clean vase filled with room temperature water. Remove any submerged leaves to prevent bacterial growth. Enhance your flowers' staying power by using the flower food provided, following the instructions on the packet.

  4. Hydration Rituals: Change the water every 2-3 days, ensuring it stays clear and fresh. Regular water changes prevent bacterial buildup, allowing your bouquet to flourish. Don't forget to clean the vase thoroughly with each water change.

  5. Strategic Display: Position your bouquet away from direct sunlight, drafts, and heat sources. Optimal conditions ensure your flowers stay resilient and vibrant. Find a cool, shaded spot to showcase your Posy Co creation.

  6. Temperature Harmony: Maintain a moderate room temperature to keep your flowers in their prime. Extreme temperatures can compromise their longevity, so avoid placing them near heating vents or open windows.

  7. Grooming Grace: Show your bouquet some love by promptly removing any spent flowers or wilting blooms. Pruning not only maintains the aesthetic appeal of your arrangement but also encourages the vitality of the remaining blossoms.

  8. Bespoke Blooms: As the ultimate touch, our Posy Co florists create custom arrangements that transcend expectations. These bespoke bouquets are professionally arranged, seasonally aligned, locally sourced, and tailored to your budget, ensuring every posy is a work of floral art.

Your Posy Co bouquet is not just a collection of flowers; it's a statement of beauty and elegance. By following these tailored tips, you'll not only prolong the life of your floral creation but also continue to bask in the radiant charm it brings to your space. Here's to the everlasting beauty of your bespoke blooms!
