Keeping Flowers Fresh For Wedding Rehearsal
Ask the Expert: keeping cut flowers fresh for a rehearsal dinner
We are planning a rehearsal dinner. I will use a candle-holding lantern on each table with a small grouping of maybe 2 roses, baby's breath and something blue tied with wired ribbon lying on two sides of the lantern. How might I prepare the little grouping of flowers early in the day and keep them fresh while on the tables?
Thank you so much for your help and advice. Jane Scobey
The easiest way to keep those flowers fresh is to use water picks. Water picks are small tubes with a rubber cap in which you can insert the flower stems. Fill the water picks with water and stick the flower stems into the rubber cap push all the way into the tube. This can be done before or after you arrange your stems. Then you can either wrap the water picks with the ribbon to hide them or remove then a little bit before the wedding rehearsal dinner.
