Premium flowers require much more to look perfect than simply being taken out of a package and placed in water. We use optimal professional conditioning techniques ensure that every blossom is at its most beautiful appearance. As the blooms are processed in our studio, stems are cleaned individually by hand and placed in water, sometimes with hot/cold temperature variation, and held for short periods as they open and reach their peak. These professional techniques help our arrangements be longer lasting and more memorably beautiful. Because we work in small batches, we take time to condition every stem, every time. The Gabriela Wakeham Floral Design team is a highly committed group of younger and better florists arranging premium blooms by hand and employing the highest caliber techniques.
