We are coming to you this week with so much gratitude for your love and support during the opening of Cassidy Flower Co. last week! I wanted to start out by sharing a special note from Lauren on flower care to make sure you get the best out of your blooms:
Here are some important tips to prolong the life of your blooms!
1. Add fresh water Flowers are thirsty and always drinking, running out of water will kill them quick.
2. Change the water every few days. Dump the old water, give the stems a quick clip, and add clean water. Clipping them reopens the vessels giving them the ability to drink more and dumping the old water removes a lot of bacteria that could kill the flowers. (You don’t need food or chemicals in the fresh water, the flowers have been treated.)
3. KEEP AWAY FROM EXTREME TEMPS Stay away from direct sunlight, heat vents, AC vents and home refrigerators.
4. If/when one flower starts to brown and wilt, remove it to keep the other flowers alive longer. When one flower dies, it can spread bacteria to the other blooms killing them quicker than they may have naturally died. Some flowers are extremely delicate and only last a few days, others last for weeks. Don’t let the delicate guys kill your hearty guys!
5. If you have hydrangea, spritz the head with water Hydrangea are HEAVY drinkers and can drink through their petals!
If you have any other questions, please let us know!Lauren
We enjoyed helping so many of you spoil your loved ones for Valentine’s Day. We have a small selection of our Valentine’s Day collection left over and we wanted you to be the first to know that this weekend only, Friday & Saturday we will have a 20% offering off of these goods!
We also know that so many of you have been anxiously awaiting the fourth and final baby to be born from our sweet oreo girls. The fourth baby was born through the night on February 16th. Isn’t this the sweetest little addition to the farm?
Lastly, we have a sweet treat in store for you for this months recipe! So many of you loved the blood orange scones I made a few weekends ago in the farmhouse kitchen and so we wanted to share this amazing recipe with you! This recipe is originally from my sweet friend Lindsay Estes Narcisso. You can check out Lindsay on Instagram @lindsayssweetsandeats or her website here.
I love making this recipe in February because blood oranges are in season and they give the icing that beautiful pink color! I always say that citrus is the gift of winter. Enjoy it while it’s fresh friends! We hope to see you soon!
