1. Utilize the Appropriate Size of the Box
Make sure to measure the length, width, and height of the overall arrangement – don’t forget any plastic vases included. Select a size box that allows 1 to 2 inches of space around the arrangement for padding. If using multiple flower arrangement boxes for flower transportation, pick boxes that are the same size to help reduce costs.
Ensure you double-check the volume of the box against the volume of the arrangement to make sure it is not too big or too small. Finally, if you are unsure about the measurements or size, contact your local florist or box supply store to help you select the right size.
2. Layer Your Flowers for Protection
Start by placing your biggest and most resilient flowers on the bottom of the box. Next, place a layer of crumpled packing paper over the flowers to provide a medium.
On top of the paper, put the most delicate of flowers, the ones that easily bruise or break, followed by another layer of crumpled paper. Nest the remaining flowers in the box and cover them with flower wrapping paper or bubble wrap.
3. Use Soft, Flexible Packing Material
Always use shredded tissue paper to cushion the stems and bases of gift arrangements. You can also incorporate cardboard dividers so that the arrangement can stay upright and for adequate ventilation. Choose bubble wrap or crumpled paper to layer around each arrangement or bouquet.
Add a protective layer of foam around the flower heads to reduce bruising during transport. Make sure you securely close the boxes with plastic tape to ensure the arrangement doesn’t come loose during the journey.
4. Fill Gaps Inside the Box Securely
Fill gaps inside the box securely ensures that the flowers don’t move around during transit and that they will arrive at the recipient’s doorstep in perfect condition. Tightly ball up tissue paper or newspaper and stuff it into any air pockets and voids within the box.
Use additional cellophane, floral foam, or shredded filler paper to make sure that there are no empty spaces within the box. Use ribbon or string to secure any items that may be able to move around within the box.
5. Place Bubble Wrap Around Your Arrangement
Start by measuring enough bubble wrap to cover the arrangement. Gently lay the bubble wrap around the edges, then move to the middle using circular motions.
Remember to get into those hard-to-reach areas. Secure the bubble wrap by using tape or a plastic twist tie.
