Melissa's Tips and Tricks - Although we love fresh flowers, building a faux floral “wardrobe” to pull from when you don’t have time or patience for fresh flowers can be a lifesaver.
We recommend starting with a dozen stems of your favorite floral pairings and a versatile vase you know is the right size, then build a collection of seasonal and occasional options. Choose your floral selection like the professionals do, a mix of fillers, thrillers and a few spillers.
It is a wonderful investment when your arrangement doesn’t turn out the way you expected and/or who hasn’t woken up to unexpectedly wilted flowers. We think they are also perfect for weekend homes or when you leave for a trip, always lovely to greet you and never deal with a dead arrangement and smelly water again.

DIMENSIONS: Flower head 3-4" wide, Stem 13" long
CARE & MAINTENANCE: We recommend avoiding direct sunlight as this can diminish the stems vibrance overtime.
Lightly dust regularly to keep looking fresh, refresh as needed by misting with water or flower spray cleaner.
For deep cleaning once a year or so we run a warm bath, then gently rinse or dip each stem in clear warm water. Lay on a bath towel to dry and your blooms will look like new.
FACTS & HISTORY: Anemone" has several different meanings depending on the culture and context in which the flower is being used.
Several of the Western meanings of anemone flowers pertain to the Greek mythology of the origin of the anemone flower featuring Adonis and Aphrodite. The goddess Aphrodite kept the mortal man Adonis as a lover; when Adonis was gored by a wild boar, Aphrodite's tears at his death mixed with his blood and gave rise to the anemone. In other versions, the boar was sent by other jealous Greek gods to murder Adonis. These origin stories reflect the classical dual meanings of the arrival of spring breezes and the death of a loved one.
In the Victorian language of flowers, the anemone represented a forsaken love of any kind, while European peasants carried them to ward off pests and disease as well as bad luck.
