How To Make Your Bouquets Last Longer

IMG_0340-9.jpg

With peony season coming up, I want them to last as long as possible! Like a lot of people, they are my favorite flower, but so hard to find! I rounded up five ways to keep your bouquets fresher, longer. 

1) Cut the stems - Immediately cut 1 to 2 inches off the stems, cutting at an angle after taking out of package. This allows the plant better water intake. Cut an inch off every other day to keep them fresh even longer. 

2) Prune - Pruning your plants means to take off any leaves that will be in the water. Removing these leaves helps your flowers open up fully. Check your flowers daily for dead leaves and remove. 

3) Change your water daily - Fill the vase with room temperature water and flower food. Thoroughly rinse out vase and change water and flower food daily. 

4) Show case them in the right spot - You've heard flowers need sunlight to grow, but not after they're picked. Avoid direct sunlight. Bouquets will last longer in a cool room, away from drafts and appliances that generate heat. 

5) Put them in the fridge - If you really want to go above and beyond, put your bouquet of flowers in the refrigerator every night. Flowers thrive in cool environments and this method has been proven to work!

I’ve been on a serious home decor kick lately. I wish I had a big, empty home that I could decorate and get creative with! Not to mention - enough money to do so!

Where do you like to shop for affordable furniture and decor? I’ve rounded up some of my favorite home decor finds from Target in the cutest color palette.

Apartment Style: Entry Way Turned Entertaining Space

Apartment Style: Entry Way Turned Entertaining Space

Eric and I moved into a new apartment in August and while the apartment has nicer features and updates, it also comes with less square footage. Our first dilemma was realizing all of our furniture would not fit. Not only was the apartment smaller, but the rooms were all shaped weird and it made it really hard to place all of our furniture.
