We're not only excited to see the cacti around Prescott beginning to bloom, but we're also looking forward to stocking our flower shop with the beautiful blooms of spring. You can celebrate the arrival of spring, too, by freshening your home with a vibrant bouquet of seasonal flowers.

Enjoy Your Bouquet Forever with These Fast Flower Drying Techniques

Most people see floral bouquets as fleeting objects of beauty. As romantic as the notion of fleeting beauty sounds, the beauty of a floral arrangement can actually last forever, if you choose to dry and preserve its flowers. The traditional and most effective way to dry flowers is to gather and tie their stems to hang them upside down in a location out of the direct sunlight. This method is the best way to preserve a bouquet's colors and shape.
