Keep Your Corsage Fresh with These Tips

Keep your corsage fresh with these tips

Corsages are available in several sizes, colours, and designs. They can be worn for several occasions and they can be pinned to the outfit or wrapped around the wrist. When wearing an elegant dress, the right corsage makes for the perfect accessory. One thing that some people struggle with, however, is keeping their corsage fresh before they wear it. You will receive the corsage before the event and, in some cases, even the night before. You don't want your corsage to wilt so, here are some essential tips.

Schedule delivery

Just like any flower order, you will need to arrange for the corsage to be ready by a certain date. The delivery date will depend on the time of the event. For example, if the event is scheduled for the morning or afternoon, you should have the corsage delivered the night before. Alternatively, you can pick it up on the day. If you choose to have it delivered on the day, you never know what time it will arrive and it could easily arrive too late.


When you receive your corsage, you should spritz it with a spray bottle filled with fresh cool water. Spray lightly and do not saturate the corsage. If possible, place the stems of the flowers in a shallow container with water. You might need to use something to prop the corsage up and keep the stems submerged.

Cool temperatures

Keeping your corsage cool is very important. Depending on the temperature in your home, you might be able to leave the corsage in a cool corner or you may have to place it in the fridge. Just make sure that your fridge is not set too cold and place your corsage in a sealed container. The container should be large enough so that the flowers are not crushed. Make sure that you place the container in the middle of your fridge. It should not be close to the back or sides since this is where condensation forms.

Use a sealant

Ask your florist for a sealant that you can use. The sealant needs to be applied to the corsage before you wear it and it helps keep the flowers fresher for longer.

Preserve your corsage after the event

Just because the event is over does not mean that you have to discard that lovely corsage. It makes a great keepsake and you can preserve these flowers yourself. Simply hang the corsage upside down in a dry environment without any wind. Once dry, you can place the arrangement in a display box or box frame.
