How to store and hand a Smile Rose

When you receive your roses it is vital to learn the giving/handing process :)
Our advice is to proceed as follows:

Store some roses everywhere
Store some roses everywhere

Find a pocket which provides easy access to your roses at any time. Place them with the rose heads pointing down.
In this way you will prevent the sharp end injuring. Any other location is good, your bag, your home/office/car
(it is an interactive decoration too) especially if it keeps you aware of the rose and the joy of giving.

Handle with care and affection

When you wish to hand a rose to someone, first get their attention, and then use (preferably) your right hand.
Take one rose slowly out of the pocket and get it in an upright position (corolla up),
then open the leaf with your other hand (to about 45° level) and straighten the flower.

Handling the Roses - Use calm natural motions
Use calm natural motions (we suggest that you show the preparation activity openly but hiding these steps works too).
When you have the intended recipient’s attention, make eye contact and forward the rose with a smile!
Quite often, you then share with the other person a great happy moment.

Handling the Roses - Please bend to protect children!!!

Hint - Recipients first reaction is usually a big smile.
But quite a few lift the rose and try to smell it as well!
You are welcome to apply any fragrance you like to the Smile Rose, we leave this to your discretion.
