DIY Flower Vase Singapore review

When I first saw the basket of flowers from the delivery man, I was exhilarated. I had no idea that this could be so huge (imagine someone giving you a fresh basket of flowers at your doorstep!). I have received several bouquets of flowers in the past, but none of the experience is as exciting as this. It's the, "WOW! I'm gonna decorate my own flower vase!" feeling.

Here's what I received:

- A handwritten note from FloralGarage (Thank you so much!)
- Four stalks of fresh roses (they were still cold)
- A bunch of baby breath flowers
- Ribbons for decorations
- A sleek and minimalist glass vase
- Some food for the flowers (Chrysal)
- A pair of gardener's scissors
- A ball of fairy lights
- A beautiful basket

I requested for the delivery to be sent in the evening— before changing the time due to a change of schedule. Hence, I wasn't able to make my own vase that night and asked if I was still able to prolong the freshness of the roses. Annabelle, the director of Floral Garage, said that I could put them in the refrigerator for a night. I did so and taadah!

After removing the white nets on each rose, I noticed that the rose seems to be drooping downwards. I was pretty worried that I destroyed its freshness (but eventually, it lifted high up towards the sky).

I started to scrape off the thorns and snip the leaves. I had SO MUCH fun arranging the layout of the flowers in the vase. I couldn't wait to show my partner what I did hahaha!

With limited knowledge on flower arrangement, I had to recall the techniques with my one and only floral bouquet lesson. The first question to ask yourself is: Which flower should be the highlight?

The Hotel Receptionist

My first look was the hotel receptionist— three beautiful flowers greeting you as you walk through the door. Isn't the touch of green is very local in nature?

Serene Blooms

I decided that simple looks best. This vase is so serene, I could just stare at them all day. Anyway, it's been a week and the flowers are still blooming really well! My previous bouquet experience would see all petals falling off— but none of the petals have shed yet.

Why does it feel so therapeutic?

Snipping off the stems and leaves are akin to removing the negative events from a relationship. I think there is something powerful in nurturing and caring for plants — it is as if the act itself is telling you that love takes time to grow. There is a lot of patience and care required— but you don't see the demand if you truly love it. The end result is always beautiful. I think the experience has taught me a very powerful lesson that beautiful moments take time!

Chrysal Review — What made the roses stay fresh or so long?


So I decided to test if there is a difference between flowers with and without the Chrysal. I didn't want to sacrifice my beautiful roses— thus I used the bunch of baby breath flowers as an experiment! See, with this basket of flowers you can do ANYTHING you want with it.

Look at the difference! The one with Chrysal is obviously WHITE and blooming— while the one without (in the vase) is dry and brownish-looking. I hope they can 'revive' with Chrysal. Oh yes, I am now experimenting to turn my baby breath flowers into blue ones. *grins*
