Fresh flowers may not last forever but you can prolong the memory of the occasion when you gave the bouquet.
As the flowers begin to lose their luster, remove them from the bouquet. Don’t wait too long. You’re preserving their beauty, not their corpses. Select a few flowers to keep. For larger flowers, remove some of the petals. For small flowers, clip them with just a bit of stem still attached.
Research how to dry the flowers. Follow the steps. You’ll only need pieces of paper, some books and a week or two.
Once dried, put the dried flowers into a small candy dish. Your sweetheart will have a reminder of the bouquet you gave.
