Petal Pointer: Keep It Clean!

Cleanup is always the least entertaining facet of entertaining; after enjoying the happy bustle of a dinner party, just the thought of washing pots and pans can be exhausting.  Similarly, when an arrangement begins to wilt it can be tempting to toss the old water, give the vase a quick rinse, and call it a day. It’s a small thing, but properly cleaning your containers after each use helps your future floral designs enjoy a longer life. Rather than merely rinsing your vases out with cool water after they’ve been used, ensure that any grime left over from standing water is removed with hot, sudsy water. You can be assured that this simple step will prevent bacteria from harming future thirsty stems, resulting in a longer vase life for your blooms.
