To keep your radish bouquet looking fresh, spray with cold water from a spray bottle from time to time. To store overnight, spritz with cold water, seal in a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator. When stored properly, your radish bouquet will still look good the next day.
If you leave in sitting out on a counter overnight, it will get limp and unattractive. So, make sure to start out with fresh radishes and store your bouquet properly.
Here are a couple of other ideas to go along with your radish bouquet. You can also use carved radish flowers to garnish a salad. Want a confetti look for your salad? Add radish and yellow squash pieces cut using the mini-melon baller. You could also use toothpicks to attach radish flowers to a thick slice of carrot and add to a place setting. Use your imagination and have fun.
