How to package fresh flowers for mailing them:
Try to keep the flowers in water as long as possible until shipping. Do not put the flowers in direct sunlight. Place in a cool dark place. Please overnight ship them to ensure the best results. I need the flowers 24 hours after the event for them to look the best. 48 hours is the maximum. Flower turn brown quite easily.
Medium size box
Packing paper, etc
1. You need a box a little bigger than the bouquet (a couple of inches taller than the whole bouquet, you can cut the stems down to help with this) or you can opt for a Styrofoam cooler box with icepacks
2. Get a smaller box and cut a hole to put the flower stems in as the base. Don't make the hole too big. Then tape the box down securely to the bigger box. (this acts like a vase for the flowers so they will stay secure) make sure it's taped really well so it's secure and does not fall out.
3. Wrap plastic wrap around the stems only do not use bubble wrap as they will kill the flowers. Than tape icepacks unto the stems but make sure they stay in place and will not move around during shipment so they don't crush the flowers. Also Ziploc bags around the icepacks can help with any drips of water to not get on the flower and create mold. Don't use ice cubes as they will just melt and ruin your flowers. Keep flowers upright in the box and put, wrapping paper, paper towels bunched up around the flowers but be careful not to crush flowers
Order info: write your name, what you sent, and what mold you wanted, on a slip of paper inside the box
*To help with shipping cost don't get too big of a box

Write fragile on the box!
