Dozen roses. Need help!

So I bought a dozen roses today. and they are tied together in a bouquet. it's two days before valentines day and I'm afraid they will die before I can give them to my girlfriend. right now I have them in my refrigerator so the heat in my house won't wilt them. but should I go ahead and put them in water now. or leave them in there over night them put them in water when I get home from school tomorrow? then when I go to bring them to her Thursday. I'm afraid they will die before the end of the day (because I will be giving them to her at school) what do I do?

They won't die immediately. Put them in the fridge and keep them out of the light. Light and heat will encourage them to bloom, which you don't want. Also you should immediately trim the stems at an angle to give the flowers a fresh raw surface to "drink" with. Just take a knife and slice an inch off of the end. Lastly, put the roses in a vase of water. There are additives that you can add to make them last longer, but generally just adding a little sugar is fine.

Leave them in the fridge until tomorrow night. Put them in water (over night) until Valentines Day(: hope she loves the roses!

Thanks but should bring them to her to school without the vase? I'm afraid they will die before she can even get home to put them in water

Snip the ends of the stems, put them water in the fridge, and add an aspirin to the vase. All will be fine.

sorry to barge in but do you really wanna carry a vase to school?

Do what @howlinwolf said. Or maybe it's best if you didn't give her the roses at school. Invite her to a date and then give her the roses

next year, buy them 1 day before V-Day
Best idea: get fake ones, real ones are overrated anyways…

Here's an idea... Buy her a dozen roses. 11 real ones, and 1 fake one. Then, hand them to her and tell her that you'll live her until the last rose dies! :)
