Here is what you’ll need: 

  • Lone Star Living bouquet

  • Water 

Want to create some beautiful flower arrangements, yet puzzled when it comes to assembling them? Well you’re in luck! Our summer-inspired August bouquet makes this easy for you, with no prior floral arranging experience necessary! Each of our bouquets are handcrafted and prearranged by our talented floral gurus. Just chop and drop into your favorite vase and enjoy! 


Step 1: Remove the Sleeve

Start by carefully removing the sleeve and rubber band. This will give you a clear view of the beautiful bouquet you’re working with! .

Step 2: Remove Leaves & Stems

Clean your flowers by removing excess foliage or wilting leaves and stems. Any leaves in the water can create bacteria that will shorten the life of the blossoms. Flowers also lose their “Chi” when they dry and can drain a home’s energy so it’s important to keep them looking as fresh as possible. 

Step 3: Chop the Stems

For best results, cut the stems with a scissor or knife at a 45-degree angle about one to two inches away from the bottom. This allows them to better absorb water. Make sure not to crush the stems as this can prevent water absorption.

Step 4: Drop into Vase

Drop the freshly trimmed stems into your favorite vase. Make sure your vase is large enough to house the bouquet. Additionally, it’s important not to overstuff the vase so that the flowers have room to bloom. Don’t forget to change the water every couple of days!
