Mixed flower bouquets are a great way to enhance both visual and aromatic appeal of your floral gift. To create the perfect mixed flower bouquet, consider color first. If you're choosing a red rose, opt for white or pink complementary flowers. Purples and pinks made good combinations, while yellows and oranges go well with greenery and foliage. The most versatile flowers for bouquets are typically roses, lilies and daisies.

When you receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers, you may want to preserve them as long as possible- especially if they have a significant meaning like a wedding bouquet. There are a few different ways you can preserve flowers: dried flowers, wax flowers, & pressed flowers.
How to Dry Flowers
You can dry a bouquet by tying a string around the stems and hanging them upside-down in a dry area for about two weeks. This method is one of the best ways to preserve the structure of the flowers.
For the first method, gather a few heavy books, line the middle of the book with some sheets of paper and put your flowers inside.
Put 1 or 2 heavy books on top to press the flowers down.
Change out the paper every week or so to dry out the flower as quickly as possible.
Pressed Flowers in the Microwave
For the microwave method, put your flower in-between two coffee filters and put the coffee filter/flower sandwich in-between two ceramic plates.
Microwave for one minute intervals, changing out the coffee filters each time until the flower is dried out.
How to Preserve Flowers Using Wax
Preserving flowers with wax is an easy method that will keep your flowers looking beautiful for months. It's best to use this method when the flower is in full bloom to preserve them that way. You'll also want to make sure your wax (we recommend soy wax) is the perfect temperature so that it doesn't destroy your flowers. Our lifestyle & floral expert Julie Mulligan gives you the details on how to create your own wax flowers on our blog.
Here's the summary:
Cut the flowers 8-10" long.
Melt the wax to 100 degrees. Soy wax works well due to its low melting point.
Dip the flower blooms. See our full article for tips on keeping the wax from cooling in the process.
