>Whenever I’m hosting a party, I always buy a bunch of flowers from the Flower Mart or Trader Joe’s with grand plans of making stunning floral arrangements. However, what with the cooking, table setting, cocktail making, and last-minute sprinting that a hostess does before an event, I end up running out of time, simply unwrapping the plastic, and throwing the flowers into the nearest vase with water. During the holidays, there’s even less time for crafting pretty flowers, so when I heard about Flower Muse’s new Holiday Host package, I couldn’t help but feel as if my seasonal floral dilemmas prayers had been answered.
>The three-shipment subscription delivers a beautiful flower arrangement to your front door on three different dates during the holidays. The first date is selected by the customer—you can choose the Wednesday before Thanksgiving or the day before your holiday open house in early December. The second arrangement arrives on Tuesday, December 22, and the third and final arrangement is delivered a week later, on Tuesday, December 29. Thus, if you’re doing any hostessing over the holidays, you won’t have to worry about flowers at all. The arrangements are customizable: Select from a variety of blooms, including roses, tulips, hydrangeas, and lilies.
>To ensure that your flowers last for several days, trim the stems on the diagonal and place them in a chic and festive vase with plenty of fresh water.
