Moss N Stone has a range of stunning arrangements to choose from, all created with the freshest flowers and foliage available. There is something really special about receiving a bouquet of fresh flowers, especially when they are as stunning as those we create at Moss n Stone.
However, when your blooms start to look a little droopy, don’t be tempted to throw them out. There are plenty of things to be done with fresh flowers when they are no longer looking their finest. Here are some of our favourite ideas.
Press Your Flowers
If you already have flat flowers, like daisies or violets, you should press them while they are still blooming. Snip the flowers, leaving a couple of centimetres of the stem. Take the largest book in your house, open it to the middle, place the flowers between two sheets of extra-thick paper towel, and then between two pieces of cardboard. Weigh down the book with other books and leave for 7 to 10 days for the prettiest pressed flowers.
Make Some Dried Flowers
Many people love dried flowers. To make your own, spray your Moss N Stone bouquet with hairspray and hang it upside down in a cool, dark area like an empty cupboard. Spray your bouquet again after three days. Once they have dried, you can display them in a vase as a long-lasting decoration.
Put Them In A Frame
You could also try displaying dried or pressed flowers in deep shadow boxes, keeping them in place using a glue gun. Get creative with the backing using fabric, lace or whatever you feel like! With enough creative thinking, you can turn your flowers into a piece of art!
Use Flowers As Wrapping Decoration
Consider adding dried flowers as an extra touch to your gift wrapping. They can be a beautiful, rustic addition to a gift decorated with a fabric or raffia ribbon. Slip a flower behind the bow or stick them down onto the gift wrap.
