Bouquet Size ~ Trim It!
The Standard size Sponge-Wraps are designed for large sized bouquets. One of the many features of the Sponge-Wraps is how easily they trim to fit smaller sized bouquets. If you would like the Wrap a bit smaller, go for it, it's easy!
Trim Steps -
• Fold the width of the Wrap in half.
• Trim short sides of Wrap vertically to cover circumference of the stems.
• Trim top of Wrap lengthwise to cover height of the stems.
• Trim plastic bag as needed and apply rubber band to secure.
(Trimmed Sponge-Wraps have less material; therefore, hold less water.)
Wedding Bouquets, a Breeze!
Wedding bouquet applications? You bet! Wedding bouquets are easily made! No fear of sloshing vase water, wet ribbons, drips or spills during transport. When the music begins, the bridal party can effortlessly remove the Sponge-Wraps without mess.
Fragile Flowers? Bouquets and Cascading Designs, Just Became More Beautiful!
The Sponge-Wraps are perfect for delicate flower stems like Lily of the Valley and fragile vines. Technique – Gather a small cluster of stems and cut flush. Trim a small portion of a Sponge-Wrap to the cover the stems. Moisten and apply the Sponge-Wrap over cut stems. Cover the Sponge-Wrap with plastic wrap and secure with rubber band. Pull the stems through the bouquet or cascading design. If additional support needed to pull through design, wire the stems. Quite the trick!
If you would prefer to use plastic bags, instead of plastic wrap. These bags work great! Associated Bags

Technique Instruction, Want More?
So exciting! An impressive team of Rock Star Designers continue to develop new Sponge-Wrap applications and techniques realizing designs formerly impossible without utilizing foam, and some, impossible to design without Sponge-Wraps! Tell them Debbie says, “Hi!”
Flush Cut, A Must!
Before applying the Sponge-Wrap to stems, be sure to cut stems flush. All stems must be in contact with the bottom of the wet Wrap before being swaddled. If stems are not touching the wet Wrap, stems will close.
Grab & Go Gift Item!
An awesome gift for your home or someone special! With the leak-proof hydration source, bouquets are easy to transport vertically and horizontally. This is very accommodating when a customer is not going directly home or to the recipient’s location!
Farmers Market, a Game Changer!
How would you like to arrive at the market without buckets of water that have sloshed all the way there and not have to hand customers dripping bouquets? Instead, simply apply the Sponge-Wraps before you leave and transport flowers to the market – vertically or horizontally – set up table, and hand customers a beautifully hydrated bouquet! Customers love how accommodating the bouquets are to transport to their destination and the benefit of not having to run and find a vase!
Stop the worry! Delivering flowers in the heat of summer can be stressful, especially when left outside. Delivering flowers with no hydration source is a recipe for disaster! Unhappy customers, returns, and reputations are at risk. Make it easy on yourself and your customers. Apply the Sponge-Wraps for continuous hydration prior to delivery. So easy and so effective!

Spills and Drips, Such a Nuisance!
You know the customer drill… remove bouquet from bucket, look, replace… remove, look, replace… repeat! Result? Water on the floor, wipe the floor, re-cut stems, ugh! Don’t you have better things to do?
Are you kidding? Why would you use nasty chemical based foams when there is finally an eco-friendly alternative? Foam takes 100 years to breakdown in landfills! So many applications are now available to be designed in an eco-friendly fashion.
Fear of Leaks?
No Way! Bouquets can travel vertically or horizontally 100% leak-free!
Do your customers and drivers have their patience tested with water spills, drips, leaks, and broken flowers? Does this result in unhappy customers and replacements? Do yourself a favor, in every bouquet include an Eco Fresh Bouquet leak-proof hydration Sponge-Wrap for carefree deliveries every time!
Paper Towel Hydration?
Why? The Wrap is a super duper absorbent sponge that will hydrate for several days. Paper towel is not even in the ballpark!
The Sponge-Wrap will keep stems hydrated for several days. For flower longevity the same optimal environmental conditions apply – cool temperature and no direct sunlight. Remember, always cut stems flush and make certain all stems are in contact with bottom of wet Sponge-Wrap before swaddling sides of Wrap around stems.
Unpredictable flowers such as Hydrangeas and Lilacs will not fare any better in the Sponge-Wraps as they would in a vase.
Bulb Flowers, Don't Squeeze To Tight!
Soft stem bulb flowers like Tulips and Crocus can be crushed if the Sponge-Wrap is secured too tightly. Leave bulb flower stems slightly looser when securing the rubber band around the Sponge-Wrap.
Treatment solutions are not required, however you may add if you like. Simply add your treatment solution to the water used to hydrate the Sponge-Wraps.
The Sponge-Wraps are 100% plant based composition. Every component is grown from the ground and is completely renewable and biodegradable.
