Valentine's Day Flower Inspiration

Posted by

Thank you for the many comments on yesterday's segment with Martha. I was thrilled that it inspired readers to dream up Valentine's Day bouquets and gifts using simple store-bought flowers.

I received this note from Jenny Steffins Hobick...

"Kevin -- I was inspired by your segment yesterday on Martha's show... so, I created some treats that incorporated grocery-store floral bouquets."

Jenny's results are so chic and beautiful, I wanted to share them with everyone...

The combination of the raw burlap and tender tulips is genius.

At first glance I thought she had potted some lovely tulips and placed them on wooden serving tray.

Then I realized the pots were actually filled with cupcakes. This arial shot is beautiful.

Here's another way to elevate a gift of cupcakes. Line the box with pale pink tissue and include a bespoke message.

I hope that Jenny and everyone will continue to share the ideas and projects they love.
