5 Ways to Reuse Our Packaging and Flowers
~ Bye bye bloomie ~
Receiving a hand-tied bouquet makes anyone feel special but eventually, beautiful blooms will wilt and look like they need to be thrown away. All good things must come to an end, and unfortunately, as fresh and vibrant as they are, a cut flower bouquet is no exception to this cliche saying! We’ve gathered 5 ways to preserve the memory of any gift by reusing and repurposing bouquets of flowers and gift boxes. Not to mention it's eco-friendly!
Flowers in a Jar
For the easiest way to preserve a bouquet, we recommend making your own flower jar. When your bouquet is completely dried up (roughly 3 weeks of letting your flowers dry), grab a jar and put snippets of the dried flowers in. You can place your flower jar anywhere at home as a decoration. On another note, doesn’t encasing your dried flowers in jar scream Beauty and the Beast?!
