Here are our essential tips and tricks on how to care for
wood flowers, ensuring that they continue to bring beauty and joy into your life for years to come.
Handle with Care: Wood flowers are delicate and require gentle handling. When you receive your wood flower arrangement, be mindful of how you hold and transport them. Avoid gripping them too tightly or applying excessive pressure, as this can cause damage. Treat them as you would fragile fresh flowers and handle them with care.
Keep Them Dust-Free: Over time, wood flowers may accumulate dust, affecting their appearance. To keep them looking fresh and vibrant, gently dust them using a soft, dry brush or a hairdryer set to a cool, low-speed setting. This will help remove any dust particles without causing any damage to the flowers.
Avoid Direct Sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause the colors of wood flowers to fade over time. To preserve their vibrancy, display your wood flower arrangements away from direct sunlight or intense heat sources. Indirect light is ideal for maintaining the beauty of your wood flowers while minimizing the risk of color fading.
Protect from Moisture: Unlike fresh flowers, wood flowers are not water-dependent. In fact, exposure to moisture can cause them to warp or shrivel if exposed to the cycles of getting wet and drying over a prolonged period of time. Ensure that your wood flowers are kept in a dry environment to maintain their integrity. Avoid placing them in areas prone to high humidity or near water sources as the natural wood material can also grow mold or mildew.
Store in a Cool, Dry Place: If you ever need to store your wood flower arrangements, choose a cool, dry location. Extreme temperatures and humidity can impact the quality and longevity of the flowers. Consider using a box or a storage container that provides adequate protection against dust and potential damage while providing air flow. We recommend a simple cardboard box.
- Indoor Display Recommended: We highly suggest that your wood flowers be kept indoors only for longevity. Wood flowers can be displayed outside at your own discretion. Outdoor use decrease the lifetime of your florals due to exposure to sun, humidity, weather, bugs and more as described above. Similar to faux florals, it is likely they will only last one season when outdoors instead of decades.
Caring for wood flowers is a delightful journey that allows you to enjoy their timeless beauty and sustainable charm. By following these tips and tricks, you'll ensure that your wood flower arrangements stay pristine and continue to bring beauty and joy your space.
With proper care, your wood flowers will captivate you and your guests for years to come, reminding us of the remarkable beauty found in nature's everlasting blooms.
