How to Package & Mail your Flowers and Materials

Step by Step Process

Step 1: Place your order online. Each item will tell you how many flowers are required. We do not return any flowers, only send what we need. Any extra flowers will be held for 6 months for re-orders. 

Step 2:  Keep flowers whole with stems cut. Dry your stems free of water before placing them in the box. Place your flowers in a SMALL box surrounded with bunched up paper towels. It is okay to layer flowers with paper towels too. NO PLASTICS OR NEWSPAPER!  Any plastics will cause your flowers to mold and we will not be able to use them. We can not preserve succulents. Please include this Mailing Enclosure Form.  If you are unable to print the form, just include your name, phone number and order number on a piece of paper.
