*Package contents and prices are based on availability and are subject to change due to weather and market conditions.
+Your flowers will arrive looking thirsty and sleepy. This is absolutely NORMAL. Please refer to our Flower Care tab on this product page for a descriptive process on care and handling instructions.
++In the event that a substitution may be necessary, we take the utmost care in assuring that your order is as similar to your original flower choice as possible. While we will always try to reach you if this situation arises, occasionally time will not allow for this, and flower substitutions may be shipped without verbal confirmation from you. In the case of centerpieces, flowers within the same color palette will be used if possible, even if this means substituting other kinds of flowers of equal or higher value.
**Returns will only be accepted if flowers arrive in poor condition. Returns will not be accepted for circumstances resulting from negligence.
Bulk Roses are shipped directly from our farms to your doorstep. Before shipping your flowers, we prepare them for their journey with proper hydration methods. If your flowers appear sleepy and thirsty after their journey, it is absolutely NORMAL. Just follow these simple steps to ensure your flowers have the proper care.
Tip: Wear protective gloves while handling your roses. Thorns may be present and tinted roses can stain hands and clothing.
- When your boxes arrive, it is important to get your flowers in water as quickly as possible.
- Remove roses from box by cutting any straps. Do not remove the cardboard sleeve that is holding the roses together in a bunch. It is recommended to leave the cardboard sleeve on for 4 to 8 hours while the roses hydrate and then remove once well hydrated. Remove all plastic packaging and rubber bands.
- Inspect your flowers.*
- Gather clean buckets, vases, or containers for your flowers. Ensure your buckets, vases containers are very clean. We recommend rinsing them with warm water.
- Fill the buckets or containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water. If flower food is available, follow the package directions for adding it to the water.
- Remove any foliage from the flowers that falls below the waterline of your containers. When removing foliage, care should be taken to not damage the stem. Removing any foliage that falls below the waterline will help prevent the growth of mold or bacteria which could cause premature wilting.
- Cut stems diagonally under running water using clean, sharp flower shears or scissors. Cut approximately 1 inch from the bottom of the stem. Immediately after cutting, place the stems in the prepared water.
- Ensure that you have sufficient room in each container for the amount of stems you will be storing. Overcrowding may cause damage to flowers and effect proper blooming.
- Allow the roses at least 4 hours to hydrate well. It can take up to 8 to 12 hours to properly hydrate. If you see that some flowers are still drooping after 3-4 hours, it it possible an air bubble has formed in the stem. Re-cut following the above directions.
- Keep flowers in a cool, dark location away from direct sunlight, drafts, or extreme temperatures and heat.
- To keep your flowers fresh, change the water every 24 to 48 hours or when the water becomes cloudy. The water will change color if the roses are tinted.. Simply change water as directed. Ensure that your flowers have sufficient water at all times. They will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival.
- We ship our roses with guard petals intact in order to protect the rose during shipping. Upon removal of the protective cardboard packaging, carefully pluck off any brown or discolored guard petals. It is not uncommon to remove an average of 5-10 petals per rose.
Remember that exposing flowers to warm temperatures will help the flower to bloom, and storing your flowers in a cooler environment will slow down the blooming process.
*Note: Our roses are packed 25 stems per bunch. Looking at the bunch from above it will appear as if there are only 12 roses. Our roses are packed in layers to ensure protection during shipping. Below the first layer is a second layer which hold the other 13 rose stems. If you are unsure, count the STEMS instead of the rose heads and you will see there are 25 per bunch.
*If upon first inspection, you foresee a problem with your flowers, do not proceed processing your order. Leave the flowers intact in the box and call us immediately at 1-877-50 ROSES (507-6737)
Lasted the longest and were easy to work with...most important they were beautiful!
When my daughter got engaged and started wedding planning, she knew right away that she wanted a fall wedding, and she wanted her wedding held at beautiful Breaux Vineyards. During the planning process, we decided to DIY her flowers to keep costs down, and she asked if I would be in charge of the whole flower process. Before this, I had no flower arranging experience, but I love fresh flowers and always would have some in the house. I started stalking Pinterest and flower wholesale websites to get ideas of colors, varieties, prices, and seasonal availabilities. I also got on youtube to watch "how-to" videos of flower and bouquet arranging. Lucky for me, my daughter didn't have any specific flowers she wanted, just an idea of the "look" she was going for- which was deep, rich, autumnal hues for her bouquet and the centerpieces, with more neutral hues for the bridesmaids (since their dresses were burgundy floral), and lots of texture. I think I was on the Fifty Flowers website daily learning about flowers, reading flower stories and reviews, and going back and forth trying to come up with a list of things to order! I used the chat function multiple times and had a phone consultation with Violet as well. Violet even sends you supplemental emails with really thorough instructions. Finally, I placed my floral order and waited patiently...and then despite all the wonderful help from the floral team, I had a panic attack that I wouldn't have enough flowers and placed a supplemental order of Country Copper Wedding flowers, LOL (they aren't on this review but were FABULOUS!!). A few months before the order arrived, I purchased the Abby clear compote vases ( which we painted gold) and the pillow floral design tools to start practicing with. Since the wedding was at a winery, my husband also cut and sanded multiple wine bottles into various heights to be used as vases as well. A week before the order was due to arrive, I was notified that the chocolate ranunculus we wanted were not available. The FiftyFlower team immediately offered recommendations for substitutions and worked patiently with me to find something that I liked. I chose the Antique Burgundy Hypericum berries and was refunded the cost difference. Arrival day went smoothly- FiftyFlowers notified me the days that everything shipped, and sent texts and emails confirming both shipping and arrival. I was super impressed with how organized, professional and helpful the FiftyFlowers team was, and even more impressed with the quality of flowers that arrived! Everything surpassed my expectations. I started making the centerpieces the day before the wedding, and I made the bouquets the morning of. I also took the advice I had heard and saved the boxes the flowers came in to use to transport all the arrangements to the venue. All in all, everything turned out beautiful, and the process was so much easier than expected. Thank You, FiftyFlowers!
