"As an ode to the millions of pounds of sweets, gobs of flowers and bajillions of balloons that will be purchased this year, I’ve put together a sweet pile of my favorite treats"
I don’t know what it is about Valentine’s day, but as soon as February rounds the corner I go giddy for pink. I’m not usually that into this oh-so-soft shade, but I can’t seem to get enough of it, my eyes are drawn to it, I crave it! I’m a sucker for anything pink—give it to me! I even HAD to buy a neon pink brassiere the other day! Why? Cause it’s pink….and neon.
So what am I doing for the ol’ V-day, you ask? Well, the mister and I rarely make any big plans. As I have been in the floral biz for the last 10 years, it is always a draining day. The last thing I want to do is get dressed and sit awkwardly in a restaurant full of couples. Not to mention, I m a total floral snob, where nary but a peony will do. As a joke one year, the mister surprised me with the biggest bouquet of baby’s breath and carnations that you’ve ever seen. It was HUGE! Oddly enough, there was something kitschy and nostalgic about it, that now, I secretly hope for every Valentine’s day!
As an ode to the millions of pounds of sweets, gobs of flowers and bajillions of balloons that will be purchased this year, I’ve put together a sweet pile of my favorite treats. Enjoy the eye candy and I hope your Valentine’s is just LOVE-ly!
