Our DIY packages arrive in loose stems and are not assembled, leaving you with all the creative freedom to arrange your own flowers.
All stems must be stored in water. You will need to remove any leaves, and thorns below the water line. Roses will need guard petals removed. All DIY packages come with detailed Instructions and Care Tips.
Typically, we recommend 1-2 hours for prepping your flowers and 2-3 for arranging the bouquets, centerpieces and boutonnieres, but this will depend on the size of the package and how many people you have to help. Usually, we see that it takes the longest to arrange the first piece but once you finish, you'll have a better understanding of what you'll need to do for the rest of the pieces, and arranging will move along more quickly.
