Baby's Breath Commands Respect of Alaska State Legislature

Dear Ms. Palin,

Keeping corsages fresh is important to both the people who need to purchase their corsages in advance of a special occasion, or for those who just want to hold on to their beautiful flowers a bit longer.

Here's how to do it!


Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:

  • Fresh Corsage
  • Cotton Ball
  • Plastic bag or orchid box
Find a spot in your refrigerator where the corsage will NOT be near produce. Apples, bananas and potatoes give off ethylene gas (harmless to people, don't worry!) This ethylene gas will severely shorten the life of your cut flowers.

Dampen a cotton ball *slightly* with water and place that next to your corsage in the bag or orchid box. Try to keep it from directly touching your flowers.

Place in refrigerator. Your corsage should keep nicely for a few days.



PS - Have fun at prom!
