Step-by-Step Guide to Caring for Flowers That Last a Year
Venus et Fleur® eternity® flowers embody the beauty and elegance revered by the goddess Venus. These are not ordinary blooms but meticulously preserved marvels designed to last a year. Discover how to care for your eternity flowers in this comprehensive guide.
How to Ensure Your Preserved Flowers Last a Year or Longer
Eternity flowers require little maintenance, making them a popular alternative to traditional, fresh-cut blooms. They are real flowers, preserved to retain their fresh appearance for a year or more. This guide answers common questions on how to care for your preserved eternity flowers.
What is the Ideal Temperature For Storing Preserved Flowers?
Ensure your eternity flowers retain their vibrant, fresh appearance by storing them in an area with controlled temperatures and humidity levels. Exposure to heat or direct sunlight may cause the colors to fade, while cold temperatures may cause brittleness. Additionally, avoid moist, humid environments. These steps will help your preserved flowers retain their beautiful aesthetic for a year or more.
How To Keep Preserved Flowers Clean and Dust-Free
If dust accumulates on the flower petals, gently remove it with a soft, dry cloth. A slight dusting should be sufficient to keep your preserved flowers looking their best for a year or more. Always handle eternity florals carefully, as they are fragile and easily damaged.
How to Display Preserved Flowers
Avoid placing the box lid directly on the florals when caring for a Venus et Fleur classic box flower arrangement. Doing so will cause damage to the delicate petals. Instead, display the lid on the side or bottom of the box. Additionally, always handle preserved flowers carefully during transportation to prevent accidental damage. Following these guidelines will maintain your flower arrangement's beauty and delicate structure.
Things to Avoid When Caring For Your Preserved Flowers
Provide optimal care for your eternity flowers by considering the following factors.
Do Preserved Flowers Need Water?
No. Preserved flowers do not require water to retain their fresh appearance. Keep eternity florals dry and away from liquids and excessive humidity. Exposing them to water or other liquids will damage their delicate structure over time, causing them to lose their vibrancy. Store your flowers in a cool, dry place to ensure they retain their beauty for a year or more.
Do Preserved Flowers Require Sunlight?
Direct sunlight is not necessary for eternity flowers. Exposing them to direct sunlight is harmful, affecting their delicate structure and color. Store your preserved flowers in a cool, dry environment away from direct sunlight to ensure your flowers last a year or more. Doing so protects the fragile petals and maintains their lustrous color.
Can Items Be Placed Inside Preserved Flower Arrangements?
Refrain from placing plant picks or other floral embellishments inside the arrangement. Instead, personalize your Venus et Fleur box lid to convey your message without disturbing the blooms. Customizing your flower box communicates your message and ensures the flowers retain their captivating beauty.
Can Preserved Flowers Be Removed From Their Vase or Vessel?
Venus et Fleur eternity arrangements are hand-arranged by floral artists and intended for display as designed. We do not recommend removing the flowers from their vase, flower box, or vessel. Upon delivery, long-stemmed roses and baby's breath may be gently arranged by hand and left undisturbed in their vase.
Can Preserved Flowers Be Stored Near Textiles?
It’s vital to keep eternity flowers away from lightly colored fabrics or other objects to avoid color transfer and staining. Display them on a stable, flat surface, such as a shelf or tabletop, where they can be showcased without the risk of damage or contact with other items.
How Long Do Eternity Flowers Last?
Preserved flowers are a long-lasting alternative to traditional fresh-cut flowers. The non-toxic preservation process ensures each flower lasts a year or more. With the proper care, your eternity flowers will continue to impart elegance in your home or office through every season, making them a worthwhile investment.
