Overview

  • Give your classic inspired arrangements a feminine touch with mini carnations.
  • Carnations feature layers of ruffled petals that form a ball-shaped bloom.
  • Each stem has multiple blooms, some will open and some will stay closed.
  • Mini carnations take a couple days to open up, put them in  a sunny area to speed opening up.
  • Given all the blooms on one stem, you can cut them into smaller pieces for your arrangements. 
  • Good substitute for spray roses, a good way to save money!

Number of Stems

  • 10 stems per bunch (5+ blooms/stem). See photos for what a bunch size looks like. 

Flower Design Type

  • Accent flower

UNWRAPPING

  • Count the bunches as you are pulling them out of the box. Get in contact with us right away if anything is awry.
  • Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate, some may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate. Periodically check the water levels, flowers drink a lot of water when they first arrive and the water may need to be refilled
  • Give everything a fresh cut (about 1 inch off), at an angle, with your snips and put them in fresh water. Make sure everything has elbow room - no crowding.
  • Some flowers will have lots of foliage on the stem, remove any that falls below the waterline of your containers. When removing foliage, be very careful and gentle to not damage the stem. Removing any foliage that falls below the waterline will help prevent the growth of mold or bacteria which could cause premature wilting.
  • Start arranging your flowers that evening or the following morning. Your flowers will need time to perk up and open.
  • Carnations will arrive with their blooms closed, to accelerate them opening, place in a warm, sunny area.  

QUALITY

  • Your flowers will arrive looking thirsty and sleepy. This is absolutely NORMAL
  • Since flowers are a product of Mother Nature, the exact color tones of the flowers may vary to some degree.
  • IMPORTANT ** Not every bud will be perfect. I follow the 5% rule, meaning that out of 100 stems, 5 stems may break while unpacking, look a little too mushed, etc. Don't let this stress you out! It's totally normal and to be expected when dealing with fresh/live product.
