Mother's Day

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

As your mother is basking in the glory of her new beautiful florals, she will want to preserve that beauty for as long as possible. We have included a few fresh flower care tips to help. Feel free to send her this easy-to-follow guide once her flowers have been delivered.

First things first
If your flowers came in plastic wrapping, you would want to remove the plastic as soon as possible. This will allow the flowers to breathe. Secondly, you will want to give fresh water to your flowers to provide hydration. Place bouquets in a vase of appropriate size or fill your current vase with fresh water. If you need to, you can trim the stem’s ends to fit a vase you have. We recommend cutting flower stems at an angle with a sharp knife.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures: windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. Too much heat or sun exposure can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Cooler and more controlled conditions will be best to help preserve the beauty of your flowers.

Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or in the vicinity of cigarette smoke. These can produce ethylene gas which can reduce the life of your flowers and cause them to die more quickly.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

  • For vase arrangements, keep your vase filled with water. This allows the plants to drink the water they need and provides them hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we suggest still adding daily fresh water to your flowers.
  • Anytime the water begins to become cloudy, change the water out with fresh water. It would be good to clean the inside of your vase during this change before placing your flowers back into the vase. Using soapy water can help remove bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly. Then make sure you rinse your vase thoroughly.
  • As wilting leaves or stems occur, remove the strongly wilted contents to allow the fresher parts to be the center of attention.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. This will help your flowers better absorb water. We recommend avoiding using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and hinder the flower from being able to absorb the water.

Thanksgiving (USA)

Can I pick-up the Thanksgiving flowers I ordered online?

Yes! Some customers prefer to pick up their flowers from the shop to offset a delivery fee or personally deliver their gift. It is up to you if you would like to take advantage of our flower delivery service. We would be delighted to meet you and assist you at FLORAL EFFECTS. You are always welcome to ask us any questions or make inquiries regarding future arrangements while visiting the shop.

Can I request a flower substitution in my Thanksgiving arrangement?

Yes. However, during high order volume holidays, such as Thanksgiving, we recommend placing your order as early in the game as possible. This allows you more flexibility to select the exact arrangement or customize the flowers you want. When supplies are lower near the day of Thanksgiving, we will not be able to guarantee that certain flowers will be available and may have to suggest substitutions from the flowers we have available in stock. Feel free to contact FLORAL EFFECTS at (817) 346-7998 regarding what specifications you would like to provide for your flowers and one of our associates will be happy to assist you.

Will my flowers be delivered even if no one is home?

When placing your order online with FLORAL EFFECTS, please provide further instructions regarding your delivery or give us a call at (817) 346-7998.

Online, you will be able to select a date of delivery that works best for you or the individual you are sending flowers to. If something changes concerning your delivery needs, please reach out to us and one of our associates will help to set up a better time, day, or plan to deliver your flowers.

Christmas

How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

Once you have received your flowers for Christmas, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
Remove the plastic that may have been wrapping your flowers. Once the plastic wrapping is removed, your flowers will be able to breathe. Next, fill a vase with fresh water for your flowers.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Periodically tend to your flowers to help preserve their beauty.

  • For vase arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we recommend providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.
  • For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.

First things first
If your flowers came in plastic, you will need to remove the plastic wrapping as soon as possible. This allows for your flowers to breathe. Then provide fresh water for your flowers as soon as possible.

Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room.

Ethylene gas can reduce the life of your flowers and be detrimental to their lifespan.

  • Keep vase arrangements filled with fresh water. This allows the plants to drink up the water they need for proper hydration.

  • As you notice leaves or stems wilting, remove the strongly wilted contents. This will help your flowers maintain a fresh and appealing appearance.
  • To help your flowers to maintain proper hydration, use a sharp knife to cut your stems. Cut the stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom. This will help the flowers to absorb water. It is discouraged to use scissors to cut the flower stems. Scissors can crush the stems, preventing proper water absorption.
