One delivery: I actually buckle the seat belt around it.

More than one in a delivery: put them in a nice box and wedge dish towels or paper towels in the spaces between them to keep them secure and upright.

i delivered 24 of them around my's what i do:

put about an inch of pea gravel in the bottom, which will help make it bottom heavy, and keep it from tipping over.

take some produce boxes from sams/costco/walmart. ya know, the ones that are only like 3 or 4 inches high. put some non skid in the bottom, and then arrange your bouquets in the box with dishtowels in between.

wiiiiiiiide sloooooow turns!

i just delivered 6 about 25 minutes away. It was a nightmare. I wish I would have read this before I left. How much did you charge for each one?

the ones for the neighborhood, i did for free, since it was a way to introduce myself to our new neighbors, but i did the same thing as a valentine special (photo in my album)

6 xtra large cupcakes with large roses on top (or flower of their choice)

flavors available: mimosa, tiramisu, strawberries and champagne, triple fudge with raspberry filling, creme brulee, pucker up lemon, or red velvet.

since i was using a lot of gourmet ingredients like liqueurs and mascarpone cheese, not to mention the supplies and delivery, i priced them at $59.

hope this helps
