The best way to keep your flowers fresh is first to always keep the water level of the container as full as possible. It is important to change the water as often as every other day. When you change the water, cut an inch off the bottom of the stem at an angle. Be sure to keep your bouquet in a cool location in your home, away from direct sunlight or electronics and appliances that give off heat.
If the recipient is not at their home when a delivery is attempted, the florist may choose to do one of the following: • Call the recipient ahead of time to make sure that they are going to be there or to schedule an appropriate time. • Leave a note on the door of the recipient's home asking them to call the florist and schedule an appropriate delivery time. • Leave the arrangement in a covered area of the home (porch or other entrance). • Leave the arrangement with a neighbor and place a message on the recipient's door referring them to the neighbor who accepted for them. If you do not wish for the delivering florist to use any of these procedures, please make sure that you indicate this in the "Special Instructions" box on your order form.
