Weekly Petalfox Post
MOMENT No. 5
Flowers Received week of April 16th, 2018
We have a crush on Spring! And for the next few weeks we wanted to share everyday romance with our Petalfoxes.
This month, our design inspiration is very personal. Our muse is Natalie Daniels (our Founder's sister!) and the model/character she plays with her hubby in this "Dark & Moody Styled Shoot" by CurtsyandBowEvents featured here (check out their IG for the full article with dozens of gorgeous photos).
"I was so charmed by everything in this photoshoot! I am compelled to offer this dark romance to personal spaces. There are so many emotions wrapped up in the sophisticated, playful and timeless art of this space. I offer my gush-worthy congrats to everyone involved in this collab!"
~Founder, Kelly Nyland
We have carefully arranged and shipped your budding beauties to ensure maximum vase life, once they arrive to your desk or door. Follow these steps to aid in the process of keeping your flowers looking fresh out of the box:
Remove tie & delivery packaging.
Separate band or tie from the base of the flowers.
Rinse stems under water and remove any loose foliage or wilted petals.
Cut each stem up to 1" (inch), on a 45 degree angle with sharp scissors or small pairing knife.
Choose a clean vessel and fill with warm water.
Add flower food or a bit of sugar + lemon juice to your water.
In order to maintain the hand-tied design, you may re-tie or band stems loosely if you prefer.
Refill vessel with water as necessary and feel free to give petals a light mist with a spray bottle.
Some flower varieties last longer than others. Your posy will look it's best if you groom your petals daily.
For maximum longevity, keep blooms out of direct sunlight in a cool spot.
To offer you the most time with your flowers in bloom, certain varieties may ship tight in bud form. Stems may not bloom simultaneously; some blooms may fade as others emerge. Individual blooms last 5-7 days; however, some varieties may last up to 2 weeks or more.

Our flowers are carefully selected and hand-tied each week just for you! No two are alike, so your flower mix might vary. This week's Petal Recipe features the following:
Carnation* - Putymayo. These lovelies have the most beautifully discreet color!
Lucadendron* (that's a mouthful right?) - shares a family with the Protea.
Rice Flower - light pink.
Amaranthus* - Burgundy - Commonly called "Love-lies-a-bleeding".
Filler & Fluff
Silver Dollar Eucalyptus*
*Indicates floral varieties grown in California (locally) or within the US.
We love flowers! We also love their perfect imperfection. Sometimes they surprise us with their hardiness and resilience, and other times they are terrifically temperamental and fragile.
We do our best to shepherd these beauties as they make their way from us to you. However, if your flowers arrived damaged we will immediately replace them, no questions asked. Please see our Terms & Conditions for more information and send us an email at email@example.com.
What means the most to us, is what means the most to you!
