I tried researching what you have asked. I only came across this on Yahoo:
First spray the flowers with any regular class 2 hydration serum.
Bubble wrap them, leaving an air pocket for ventilation. Then pack them in a corrugated molters cardboard box. Take care not to damage the flowers whilst inserting them.
They should be fine for shipping times under 1 week

All the flowers I've purchased have been individually wrapped with thin sheets of foam. Then they were put in boxes and the boxes wrapped in bubble wrap.HTH

Just don't write "fragile" on the outside, or they become targets. The only things I've ever had break in transit had "fragile" all over the box. The ones I don't write on get there fine.
