HELP with flowers!!! Wedding tomorrow!!!

Getting married tomorrow, I have picked up Calla lillies for my table centres but have noticed that some of the steams are squidgy (new technical term for really limp!) A couple of them have almost disintergrated all together!! What should I do to keep them as fresh as possible over night?? Worried about putting them in water incase they all end up the same way???!! image

    Oh Angie I haven't really got any advice. Not very green fingered!

    Hopefully you'll get some better ideas from the other girls, but on a brighter note -

    Congratulations for tomorrow! :\)
  • Hi,

    My local florist always says to put floweres straight away into a little water - not too much though only a couple of inches. If some of the stems are squigy then perhaps cut a could of inches off the ends. Hope this helps image

    is it just the ends that are like that?when you get fresh flowers home you should always cut the end off and put them in to a little water,not too much and also make sure they don`t lean or bend or they will be that shape by tomorrow.keep as cold as possible but not in fridge (mum used to be a florist) xxxx and best wishes for tomorrow

    Calla's go like this and all you can do is cut them as they go slimey after time...sorry no good to you this late!
