Tips on how to choose the perfect flower arrangement for your home

Fresh flowers bring color and life to your living space. They can add a nice touch to any room and also do wonders when it comes to boosting a person’s mood.

One of the biggest challenges associated with using flowers to decorate homes is their short lifespan. While some flowers naturally last longer than others, some tips can help keep flowers fresher for longer. Some of the ways you can extend their longevity include:

  1. Keeping them away from direct heat, cold, and sunlight
  2. Keep flowers away from fruits. Flowers are sensitive to ethylene gas that’s produced by ripening fruits.
  3. Change the water every few days

Choosing long-lasting fresh flowers for your home

Trying to choose blossoms for your home? Fortunately, there is a wide range of flowers that you can choose from. Here’s a list of flowers that you can use to decorate your home (we have included their expected longevity):

  • Chrysanthemums

These last for anywhere between 2-4 weeks.

They come in a wide range of shapes and colors ranging from creamy whites to bold purples. Different chrysanthemum varieties include single chrysanthemums, spider chrysanthemums, pompoms, anemones, and decorative. Their wide variety makes them a versatile bloom for bouquets helping add a beautiful texture to floral arrangements.

  • Orchids 

These last for anywhere between 2-3weeks.

Orchids are undeniably elegant and are usually a symbol of luxury. This makes them a sophisticated flower suitable for any floral arrangement in a bouquet. Cymbidium orchids, vanda orchids, and phalaenopsis orchids all last for a relatively long time, especially when properly cared for.

  • Carnations

These last for anywhere between 2-3 weeks.

Carnations are attractive and versatile – they come in different colors and their frilly texture complements many other blooms very well.

  • Lilies 

These last for anywhere between 10-14 days.

When buying lilies, get them in bud so that they can open up once they get home. This will also ensure that they remain protected while in transit. Watching the lilies bloom is so satisfying. Don’t forget to trim them and change their water every few days.

  • Hydrangeas

These last for anywhere between 7-10 days.

Hydrangeas take up a lot of water so you’ll have to refresh their water every day. One thing that most people don’t know is that hydrangeas last longer if the flowers are allowed to dry out. To make this happen, place them in a vase with only a few inches of water. The flowers dry out over a few weeks as the water in the vase evaporates. Once they’ve dried they become very fragile so you should avoid moving them.
