We have two types of arrangement:
Our hand-tied bouquets arrive pre-arranged, jute-tied and wrapped in kraft paper.
Our 'letterbox bouquets' come beautifully wrapped in our signature Little Buds gift boxes.
Our stems are no more than 70cm. They’re easily bent, moulded, or trimmed with wire cutters or scissors to suit your vase.
Don't forget to check out our selection of gorgeous, hand-picked vases, sourced with our own faux arrangements in mind!
Our artificial houseplants are presented either in pots, soil planters ready for your choice of pot, or sprigs to be hidden in whichever way you choose. Many have leaves which are mouldable and can be altered to suit.
All Little Buds are sent with special Little Buds branded stickers and tape.
Cleaning your faux arrangement or artificial houseplant.
We recommend lightly dusting your faux every week to remove anything unwanted that might settle, or alternatively use a hairdryer at the LOWEST (cool) heat setting.
Can Little Buds be left outdoors?
Our faux stems are made of silk and other delicate materials, they aren’t designed to be left outdoors. Little Buds faux arrangements and houseplants are more than suitable for an afternoon in the garden (e.g. if you’re having a party), but should be brought back indoors when festivities are over.
Our outdoor hanging baskets are a little different – they have a light UV coating for protection against the weather. However, don't leave them out in any elemental extremes like snow, frost, direct sunlight or strong winds.
They will need to be protected from the weather during colder months under a porch, or taken indoors for safe keeping until warmer and less windy weather arrives.
Will my faux arrangement fade over time?
The lifespan will depend on how it is used.
We can guarantee they will last MUCH longer than real flowers, however we cannot guarantee precise longevity. This naturally will depend on how the bouquet has been used and handled over time, where it has been displayed and the varying temperatures and manner in which it has been kept.
It’s important to remember that even faux has an expiry date. Artificial flowers will fade over time. Take care of them and display for as long as they’re bringing you joy, but if after a while they’ve lost some of their charm, you can retire them and treat yourself to a new look. Another trick our customers use to extend the lifespan of their blooms and keep them looking fresh is to alternate between arrangements throughout the year to suit the seasons.
Vibrantly coloured flowers will fade quicker than more subtle colours, but as with many fabrics, over time artificial materials will lighten. To ensure the longevity of your faux we would recommend that you place them out of direct sunlight, e.g. not permanently left on a windowsill.
Care of our tulip bouquets
This is especially pertinent for our 'real-touch' stems like our tulips. Whilst our tulips last much longer than their real counterparts they do have a differing lifespan depending on their care and where they are situated. If you want to prolong the lifespan of your tulips, we would strongly recommend that you don’t display them on a windowsill. They are made of a special silicone to create that fabulous texture, and while not delicate, they will fade and yellow if not taken care of properly. Again (like fabrics) they will do so more quickly the more light they are exposed to.
Another tip to maintain your arrangement is to avoid displaying/storing in or near damp or humid conditions and when storing make sure they're fully dry beforehand. It may be better if you store them in an airtight box in a cool place. Don't let them be subject to strong light (sunlight especially) or extremes of temperature, so please bear this in mind if you want to store them in a loft, airing cupboard or garage.
Unfortunately Little Buds cannot be held liable for any discolouration or problems with stems that occur six months after the purchase date, as we cannot guarantee they have been displayed or stored carefully.
