Hiding flowers for Valentine’s Day and keeping them fresh

This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday. Your florist might offer delivery on this day but you may not want to spend too long waiting for them to arrive. Not being able to schedule an actual time for the delivery, you might prefer to have the delivery made the day before. Of course, when it comes to hiding flowers, there are a few important steps that you will need to take.

Flower prep

First things first, before hiding flowers, you need to make sure that they are ready. In other words, you should remove any packing materials and trim the stems before placing them in some fresh water. This will ensure that they will do very well overnight and the will not dry out or wilt.

Rarely used

Now you need to look for a room or space in your home that you do not use too often. You don’t want your Valentine to find the bouquet by accident, which is why you need to choose the perfect spot for hiding flowers! Make sure that they are not likely to go into this room or area of the home.

Right temperature

This ties in with the point mentioned above. While you should look for a room that they will not frequent, you don’t want to be hiding flowers in your garage or car where they will be exposed to cold temperatures. Extreme temperatures of any sort will cause the blooms to perish sooner rather than later. Make sure that the temperature in the room is moderate.

Away from pets

If you have pets, or children for that matter, you should make sure that you do not hide the blooms anywhere that they may visit. If you do place them in such a room, make sure that you keep the door closed or even lock if need be.

Enough space

Avoid hiding flowers in small spaces where they could be crushed by items like cushions, blankets, books or anything else that could easily fall on top of the bouquet. In other words, store the blooms away from any possible danger.

Now that you know what to do, hiding flowers for Valentine’s Day does not need to make you break a sweat. As long as you have everything planned in advance, you don’t need to worry about your partner or spouse accidentally discovering their special gift.
