Sweet

My mom is really super duper allergic to anything scented. (Well there are like 2 exceptions but those don't really count. Pretty much if is smells she can't have it.) This means no flowers for Valentines day. Well I wanted to be creative this year and do flowers of a sort. So I've seen many of those edible/fruit flower arrangements and that got me thinking...







So here you have the "fruit" of my labor! hehehe I know bad joke! But I made some chocolate covered strawberry bouquets. I filled the vases with kisses and then had the strawberries on the bamboo squires. For a yummy and pretty treat! I had enough to do more than one arrangement so a couple of friends got them too. I wish I had made more because there were other people I thought of giving them to. But as it was I didn't even get them made until Monday and they weren't delivered until Tuesday so I was late. Maybe you will get some for your birthday if you make sure I know the date!
Just thought I would share the fun idea. And for those who are curious it really didn't cost much. I was able to get the strawberries for 2 for $5, the chocolate I think was a little under $3, and the squires were about $2. The kisses were on sale for about $3 for 2 bags. I was able to make 3 small vases (6-8) and one large (a little over a dozen). And still had a few extra strawberries and kisses. So pretty good compared to actual flowers! And so much yummier!!

Sweet! That's a great idea. I'll have to try it. Do they make green bamboo sticks? James thinks that you could dye the bamboo with green food coloring...if they aren't waxy.
