HOW IT WORKS

How to Ship...

Please carefully follow these instructions to safely pack and ship your flowers, stress-free!

Timeline

STEP 1

STEM CARE 

Cut each stem at an angle, leaving them long enough  for the next step below. Then, wrap them in a moist (not  damp, not wet) paper towel. Take the bottom and secure it with a rubber band or the ribbon from your bouquet. This step is extra important, we DON'T want your flowers, or the box getting wet. 

PLEASE NOTE: Do NOT Include Water, or a vase! While water doesn’t technically fall into the category of  shippable hazardous materials, shipping flowers with water is prohibited because it may leak and cause damage. 

STEP 2

SECURE THE BASE

At the base of your flowers, bunch up a handful of newspaper or kraft paper.  Carefully and lightly, wrap around the "neck" of your bouquet. This creates a secure foundation for your flowers so the side pieces don't willow over.

STEP 3

BUILD A WALL

Take more craft or newspaper and gently and lightly wrap the entire bouquet, just like a florist would except that you want to go all the way around. Try to make the wall at least an inch above where your flowers are. This will create a barrier wall for your flowers inside the shipping box.  Be careful not to crush any flowers on the sides, and to not make this wall too tight. 

STEP 4

PETAL PROTECTION 

This step is optional, but it helps! You may take cotton balls or pads and gently place them in between or underneath any fragile or thin petals that may need a little extra protection. It creates extra padding in between flowers that might be getting squished together. Be extra careful  not to force it, we don't want to damage any flowers that might already be extra delicate. 

STEP 5

PACKING 

Use a corrugated, preferably new, strong box.  Gently set the flowers inside, adding extra padding in the empty spaces. Packing peanuts work best, or extra kraft paper if you have alot of empty space to fill in. Keep in mind, the bigger and heavier the box, the more expensive it is to ship. Try to leave 1"-2"  between the box and where your flowers are facing up. Add a fragile sticker, and "this side up" sticker if you can, facing up towards the top of your flowers in the box.   

CARRIER: 
FEDEX is recommended for flowers, becuase they are the quickest and most reliable. 
 USPS is fine, and is more affordable. They also usually have free boxes. Whether you overnight your flowers or are able to expedite them, depending on your location.... please note the golden rule:
