Oh Nannie, that is so disheartening after putting in so much time making all those little petals! So sorry this happened to you! Living in extreme humid conditions here on the Bay in SE Texas I worry about that every time I make gp anything that needs to stand upright. I started storing my gp flowers in those big deep disposable roasting pans you can get at walmart, 2 for $2.87 or something like that. I haven't had any trouble with humidty issues since storing the flowers in these. Here is a picture of what I am talking about......you will see some roses and my Edna Stargazers stored in them icon_smile.gif

I put them on a rack until the are hard, usually over night or a 24 hours. I move them to a tray with some foam where they sit in an open, dry space over a week. Then, after they are fully dry, I store them in a box or dry container over a bed of either foam or paper. Even toilet paper works great. You can store them for years!

What you just described is about exactly what I did and it does work great! My roses in those containers are 6 months old and look as nice as the day I made them! I have a padding of wadded paper towels supporting my Stargazer petals.....so far so good! icon_smile.gif

The rain has stoped so my flowers are going into the hospital for repairs. A few new petals and they'll be looking good.

Wanna hear a funny one. I gave my first flower to a friend. I hid it in her garden then pointed out that she had a late blooming bloom.

She fell for it for a few seconds. icon_lol.gif

Then during the storm, a couple of her petals fell off too... They'll go into the hospital too.

At least I'll get lots of practice.

Thanks for the storage suggestions. I hate to put them away, they are too pretty.

icon_lol.gif That is funny, Nannie! What a compliment for her to think it was a real flower! icon_biggrin.gif
I agree, they are to pretty to store but I would rather store them than have them fall apart on me. Oh, and did I mention mine are "stored" on my front dining room table so I can see them several times a day!! icon_lol.gif

My mom has taken all the flowers off her cakes over the years and kept them. The other night I pointed out that they are all falling apart, are dusty and kind gross and maybe she should throw them out.


I can always make more. But you know, a mom can't ever throw out their kids gifts. icon_lol.gif
