Happy Valentine's Day to you...

My husband came home yesterday with this little Valentine's bouquet for me. One of his co-workers and her mother were making (and selling) these little bouquets to help fund a heart monitoring device for a young woman who had had a heart attack. I loved this...not only because it was a wonderful cause but it was also a very creative idea!


These are Hershey's kisses that have been wrapped together, end-to-end, in cellophane to create a "rosebud." Each rosebud and a silk leaf were then attached to a stem using floral tape and six stems were used to create each bouquet! A "Happy Valentine's Day" tag was tied around the bouquet along with some red and pink ribbons. All in all, a very clever idea!

Now that's a Valentine's bouquet that is actually worth it's cost!

Very clever! I hope they were able enough to pay for the needed medical equipment.
