Instructions on how to dry out a boxwood and peony bouquet:
Step one is to remove all the peony heads and greens.
Allow them to fully dry out. If removing the stems straight from a vase, you may need to wait overnight (or longer depending on the humidity). I choose to air dry the bouquet by disassembling it over napkins. I bet you could bake them or use a dehydrator but I do not have that experience to speak on.
Once dried, place boxwood stems along the bottom of the mason jar in a circular form. Then place a peony head.
Continue this pattern until your jar is full or you run out of bouquet.
Lastly, I saved the ribbon and twine from a different bouquet (it was my birthday so I trote myself) to wrap around the neck for a nice little touch.
Keep away from humidity for best preservation. Enjoy your ‘forever’ florals!
