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" wide, Stem 24" long, trim to fit any arrangement
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: Tulip mania was a period during the Dutch Golden Age when contract prices for some bulbs of the recently introduced and fashionable tulip reached extraordinarily high levels, with the major acceleration starting in 1634 and then dramatically collapsing in February 1637.
It is generally considered to have been the first recorded speculative bubble or asset bubble in history. In many ways, the tulip mania was more of a then-unknown socio-economic phenomenon than a significant economic crisis. It had no critical influence on the prosperity of the Dutch Republic, which was one of the world's leading economic and financial powers in the 17th century, with the highest per capita income in the world from about 1600 to about 1720. The term "tulip mania" is now often used metaphorically to refer to any large economic bubble when asset prices deviate from intrinsic values.
