All ingredients are handpicked and purchased every morning from our local markets and suppliers, so when they are delivered, they are all fresh and cooled down, this is the best time to enjoy them, otherwise please read below on how to get the best out from your yummy bouquets, if you need to hold them for a bit longer:
Chocolate covered strawberries and other fruits and berries covered in chocolate shall be eaten within 1 day/24 hours after you received it. The best temperature for chocolate is +9-12 degrees in a dry place. If you are picking up your order, please bring thermo bag or box to keep the temperature. Don't leave them in a car, on direct sunlight or next to a heating device, make sure you have your air-conditioner on before and during driving. Once you receive your order its best to cool it down in the fridge for 15 mins before consumption. This product is best when eaten within 24 hours, if you have to keep it a little longer, you might use a cellar or a wine fridge for it. Just remember, the strawberries give away juice when they are covered with chocolate or any other sweet sugary coating.
Bouquets with Chocolate bars, cookies and waffles, Zeppoles and Meringues should be eaten within 2-3 days (if not eaten at once, keep in an airtight container in a refrigerator for up to 3days, but keep them separate, so they don't absorb moisture from other ingredients)
Bouquets with berries, fruits and vegetables could be kept in a fridge at +4-5 degrees for up to 2 days, except strawberries (they last less depending on the weather season they've been picked)
Meat and Cheese bouquets shall be kept in the fridge and enjoyed within 2-3 days.
Dried fruits and nuts shall be kept in a dry cool place, not in a fridge though. These type of bouquets could be kept for months, they would look great all this time as a centerpiece and still be ok to eat. (But of cause if there are insects in the house or too much dust, don't keep it that long and, if you decide to do so, don't eat it, if you see something is not right)
All our flowers and herbs are installed with some water supply inside of the bouquets, but in hots days some plants and flowers drink much more, so when you disassemble the bouquet, please refill them and you can enjoy your flowers for longer.
This is the reason, we believe that the best way would be that you actually tell your loved ones that there is a delivery coming with a surprise and make sure they are at the address for the delivery. You don't need to tell them what it is, we wouldn't either, but make sure that they know its coming. Otherwise, this surprise could be spoiled, as we take the bunch to their neighbours or have to leave it outside, the recipient might not be there on time to eat the yummy Edible Bouquet.

PS: Common sense is the best judgment for these, if the weather is too hot - don't keep it in a space without an air conditioner. If you are camping or have an outdoor party - don't leave it for too long for ants and bugs to attack.
