Valentine's Day blooms aren't just beautiful centerpieces; they're symbols of love and affection meant to last. But how do you ensure those stunning arrangements from Spedale's Florist stay vibrant long after the initial "wow" moment? Worry not, lovebirds! Here are expert tips to keep your floral gifts radiating romance long after February 14th.

From Our Expertise to Your Home:

  • Freshness Guaranteed: At Spedale's, we handpick only the finest, fresh-cut flowers with vibrant colors, firm buds, and healthy foliage, setting the stage for a long-lasting display.
  • Pre-Pampered: Before you even pick up your arrangement, our team has already pampered the flowers. We cut stems at optimal angles, hydrate them thoroughly, and add special treatments to boost their longevity.

Bringing the Love Home:

  • The Right Fit: If you have purchased loose Roses or Flowers; Choose a vase large enough to comfortably hold your arrangement without overcrowding. Clean it thoroughly with warm, soapy water to remove bacteria. Remember to remove any packaging materials around the flowers!
  • Temperature Matters: Find a cool spot away from direct sunlight, drafts, and heat sources like radiators. Good air circulation is key to prevent moisture buildup and potential fungus growth.
  • Hydration Heroes: Replenish the water every 2-3 days, ensuring it reaches at least two-thirds of the stems height. Use cool water, never hot (recommended temperature ranges (e.g., 60-70°F). Use the provided flower food packet for added nourishment.
  • Pruning Power: Every few days, gently remove any wilted leaves or petals to keep the water cleaner and prevent the spread of bacteria. You can also re-cut the stems diagonally by about half an inch for better water absorption.

Beyond the Basics:

  • Specific Care: Different flowers have different needs. If your arrangement includes lilies, lightly mist their blooms to prevent browning. For hydrangeas, submerge the base of their stems briefly in cool water every few days. Ask our knowledgeable staff for specific care tips based on your arrangement's contents.
  • Showcasing Beauty: Display your arrangement where it can be admired! Choose a spot that highlights its colors and complements your home decor. Rotate the vase periodically for even light exposure.
  • Love the Journey: Enjoy the gradual changes in your flowers. As they mature, their colors may deepen or soften, adding a unique charm to their lifespan.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure your Valentine's Day arrangement from Spedale's Florist remains a beautiful symbol of love long after the holiday. Remember, our passion lies in creating stunning, long-lasting arrangements, so let us help you spread the love this Valentine's season!
