Baby's breath lasts forever! We still have some in little apothecary jars on our mantle from Valentines day without any water. So I think you'll be okay with 12 hours.

I would think so...I think it would look perfect at your venue too!

MissTre said...

Oh, definitely! As long as its not baking out in the sun, it'll hold up just fine! :)

Rose said...

Oh for sure! If you just left it up, it would probably end up drying beautifully too!

I'll agree with everyone above, seeing as I have little to no experience with flowers. My suggestion before I read all the comments was going to be to maybe spritz it every once in a while, if you get a chance?

But I think the real question is: Will it blend?

Haha sorry I couldn't resist.

i'll just reiterate what was already said but baby's breath really does last a long time. you should be golden if it's only out of water for 12hrs.

Oh so pretty, I think it will last.

The instructions say: "To keep your garland fresh, coil it up, mist it lightly with water, and place it inside a plastic garbage bag. Put it in your refrigerator, or in the coolest spot available. It should stay fresh for 24-48 hours depending where you keep it."

So I'd say a little TLC in the storage and you're golden. :)
