How to Make your Bouquet Last Longer
If you’re looking to make your bouquet last as long as possible, there are a few steps that can help.

Once they’re in your possession, their freshness starts to decline. Arrive armed with a large vase (ingredients below) filled with enough warm water for the stems to be submerged entirely. Cut about an inch off each stem at a 45° angle and place them back into the warm water quickly to minimize wilting. Keep your flowers out of direct sunlight and drafty areas, give them plenty of air by spritzing water on them every other day, and add some extra life by changing the water often. With these tips, hopefully your beautiful bouquets will remain vibrant for many days!

Or why not make aromatherapy sachets – simply sew some cotton fabric into small bags filled with fragrant herbs like lavender and dried rose petals?
