Basing up quickly days beforehand, doing several arrangements at a time, preparing boxes with lining, chocolates and tying ribbons and stocking up early with the flowers that take longer to open and bringing in the roses 2 days before, scalding and cleaning them to save time and having them ready to place them in the prepared boxes, vases and arrangements.
