Unless you’re using tropical flowers (most people DIYing flowers don’t, since they can be temperamental), store in a cool, dry place away from fruit or vegetables that can give off chemicals that can make flowers rot. If you plan to put centerpieces together more than a day or so in advance, you might want to store the finished arrangements in a refrigerator that doesn’t have anything else in it (no fruit/veg especially), spritzing with a water bottle once or twice to keep stuff looking fresh, and add some flower food to the water when you put everything together. Good luck!

Fridge most likely. I will be making mine the night before and storing them in the large industrial refrigerator at my venue until the next morning. 🙂 But I’m ordering the bulk flowers so to store them at home i am putting them in buckets of water and flower food and storing them in my bathroom bathtum with some cold water in the tub to keep them cool and moist and turning my A/C down reeeeealy low 🙂
