Step 1: Start with a clean vase.
Make sure to thoroughly sanitize the vase you are going to use for your flowers. Bacteria in an unclean vase can cause premature wilting of your blooms, so it is important to keep them as clean as possible. Use warm water and a few drops of mild dish soap to gently scrub the inside and outside of the vase before using it. Rinse it thoroughly and dry it with a clean cloth before adding flowers. This will ensure the freshest and longest-lasting bouquet possible.

Step 2: Cut blooms to fit the vase.
Once you have your vase cleaned, take time to trim each stem of your bouquet so that it can fit nicely in the container. Make sure not to cut them too short! The stems need enough length to allow them to draw up water from the bottom of the vase. A good rule of thumb is to cut stems at an angle and make sure they are about 1-2 inches shorter than the height of the vase.

Step 3: Use fresh water and floral food. 
Fill the vase up with fresh, room-temperature water and add a floral food packet. Do not use hot or cold water as this will shock the blooms and cause them to wilt prematurely. Floral foods come with most bouquets but if you don’t have one it is ok to skip this step.

Step 4: Change the water regularly.
Make sure to replace the water in your vase every few days, using the same steps described above in Step 3. This will help ensure that your flowers are getting enough nutrients and stay looking their best for as long as possible.

Follow these steps and your bouquet should remain beautiful and fragrant for days! By taking extra care of your flowers, you can enjoy a vibrant and long-lasting display of natural beauty.
