So I bought all my flowers to arrange to put on my cakes. The florist gave me bad info! I bought $80 worth of flowers. She said, "oh just put them in your fridge they'll be fine!".
I get up this AM to check, they are NOT so fine! All freakin' dead!! Grrr....Now I have to go back, and convince them to replace them. Grrr...
Not starting out as a good day!
What a huge pain! Hope you get good results from the florist. Flowers should have lasted much longer in the fridge. they must have been half dead when you bought them.
Good News...I took them back and they replaced them all
That's a relief! Now you know you can probably trust them for the future. Florists can really make or break a cake.
I'm glad it all worked out for you!
So how do you attach fresh flowers to a cake? Are there any pics in your photos?
See it now???
um, i assume they were in WATER and in the fridge, yes?
Okay, got to say this...my florist friend tells me that some refrigerators are too cold for different types of flowers. They still need refrigeration, but at a slightly higher temp. (cala lillies)
I was told the same thing for my cousin's wedding. I was the wedding planner. My friend was out of town and her designer told me to put the cala lilies in the refrigerator. I did. Frig was too cold and killed the flowers. I had to use floral paint to fix them AFTER I took the bouquets apart and put them back together. It wasn't pretty.
I'm glad the florist replaced them, now you have a florist you can trust.

They might hold better in a bucket of water in your garage, this time of the year it should be about as cold as your refrigerator. besides, you don't want the flowers and the cake in the same refrigerator anyway, in case there are any tiny little bugs in the flowers.
Where I live, my garage is frozen
But perhaps in someone's place further south. Sorry it just made me laugh because I have an 8 ft snow pile in front of my house right now.
What can I say? I am a California girl. I should know better though, my mother was from Hannah, Alberta.
