Candy Bouquet Valentines

Hey Everyone,

Today we woke up to more snow falling, seriously Mother Nature?, but it was that beautiful romantic fluffy snowfall.  A perfect backdrop to make valentines for my two girls.  

Here they are while we watched the Pat’s win the Super Bowl; aren’t they the cutest? 🙂

Here’s the skinny on their Valentine’s Day bouquets! 

My girls love Lindt’s chocolates; like obsess over them.  

Lindt Valentine's chocolates 

I found these valentine themed Lindt candy bags at Target last week for about $3.99 a bag. They are different flavors, a few they’ve never had before.  I used the leftover candy from their bouquets for goody bags with some other chocolates for my nieces, nephews and the grandparents.

While at Target, I grabbed two of the cutest mugs, too.

Then I stopped into my local dollar store for some other valentine themed items: 1 pink and 1 red pack of heart picks, 1 bag of red shredded tissue, 1 spool of love themed ribbon and a generic brick of floral foam.  

Here is everything laid out together: Valentine Supplies

 

I stuffed the mugs with the foam; not too snug, but snug enough.  Want to make sure we can get it out easily to wash and make cocoa stat!

There were sixteen picks all together. I took the tops off of ten heart picks, leaving 4 red and 2 pink to use, then clipped the tacky ends off. Then the untouched side was used for the candy; piercing the candy, not completely through, except on the ones that were doubled.  Stuck 5 candy picks into the foam, varying their heights, and added in three hearts to each mug.

Covered the foam with the shredded red tissue.  Added a few more truffles to the bottom 

Tied the ribbon around the body of the mug… and done!
