Centerpiece Care:

To ensure your fall centerpiece remains stunning throughout the season, follow these care tips:

  1. Keep your centerpiece away from direct sunlight and drafts.
  2. Change the water in the vase regularly, adding floral food for fresh flower arrangements.
  3. Trim the stems at an angle every few days to maintain water absorption.
  4. Remove any wilted flowers or foliage to keep your centerpiece looking fresh.
  5. If you have an artificial centerpiece, dust it gently to maintain its vibrancy.

Centerpiece Care for Floral Foam:

If your fall centerpiece from Fancies Flowers & Gifts features floral foam, it requires a slightly different approach to ensure its longevity. Follow these care tips:

  1. Hydrate the Floral Foam: Initially, soak the floral foam in water for a few minutes until it's fully saturated. This will provide a water source for your flowers.
  2. Regular Watering: Check the floral foam's moisture level regularly. Keep it hydrated by adding water to the foam as needed, typically every two to three days. Use a long, slender spout watering can to reach the foam without disturbing the arrangement.
  3. Trimming Stems: Trim the stems of your flowers and foliage at an angle before inserting them into the floral foam. This allows for better water absorption.
  4. Clean Water: When adding water to the foam, make sure it's clean and at room temperature. Avoid using ice-cold water, as it can shock the flowers and foliage.
  5. Keep Cool: Place your floral foam centerpiece in a cool location away from direct sunlight and drafts. This will help prolong the life of the flowers.
  6. Mist the Arrangement: To maintain humidity around the flowers, mist the arrangement with a water spray bottle, especially in drier environments.
  7. Remove Fading Blooms: As flowers begin to wilt or show signs of decay, gently remove them from the arrangement. This will allow the remaining blooms to thrive.
  8. Re-cut and Re-insert: If you notice certain flowers wilting, you can re-cut their stems and re-insert them into the foam for a fresh start.

By following these care tips, your floral foam centerpiece from Fancies Flowers & Gifts will continue to exude the beauty and elegance of fall throughout the season. Enjoy the long-lasting splendor of your arrangement!
