Fresh Florals


How long do they last? As fresh florals are a natural perishable, we cannot guarantee the exact life span. With proper care, you can help increase their longevity. How to care for them? All of our fresh floral arrangements come with wet floral foam, which supply the stems with water. Place the arrangements away from direct sunlight and keep indoors. Keep in a cool area. Add 1 cup of water into the floral foam every couple of days to maintain water level. All fresh floral arrangements with chocolate strawberries have dry foam and not wet foam inserted. Can you ship them? At this time we cannot ship our floral arrangements out of the Vancouver area, but hope to do so in the near future. Please check back for updates. Seasonal availability of fresh roses Depending on the season, some of the flowers that are shown in our product pictures may differ from what will be created for the client. We will always do our best to maintain the same value and color scheme for each order.

Dried Flowers


What are Dried Flowers? Dried Flowers & Grass undergo a dehydration process that naturally dries the petals, leaves & stems. Once it is dried, it then undergoes a coloration process to add any desired color. This process allows the flowers to prolong it's lifespan for years. How to care Much like preserved roses, dried flowers must be kept away from humidity, water and direct sunlight. Maintaining these steps will ensure the longevity of the flowers.
