Baste Your Bouquet

Here's one my favorite tips on how to make your bouquets last. Some people swear on vodka, bleach, and penny powder. I've tried them all and though great, I love this solution because it's all natural. How I see it, it's not about what you put in, but what you take out. If you recall, I shared with you guys the trick of using a clear rubber band to hold your bouquet together. This new tip allows you to refresh your water without disrupting your flower arrangement. The solution? A turkey baster! Stick the baster into your vase and squeeze out the old water. Then refill from the tap. By flushing out old water and adding clean water, you'll keep your leaves green while maintaining your picture perfect arrangement.

Baste away!
