Special Delivery: Protea Flowers & Bubbles

Valentine’s day treats are much sweeter in pairs which is why I love this orange box. I filled my box with a bouquet of protea flowers and a bottle of  Roederer Estate Sparkling Wine, but you can use your own favorites to complete the package: wine, Champagne, flowers, chocolate or anything else that fits. I chose protea flowers because it is a wild flower with a fresh fragrance that is memorable for a valentine. Roederer Estate – Anderson Valley California   Photo: Monica Melsness

Balloons with a Twist!

Balloons are guaranteed to provide the fun factor in a wedding, birthday party, picnic, tea party or  romantic dinner. Try updating the ‘ normal ‘ helium balloon with a string made of ivy and flowers. It gives a romantic, cheerful effect which lends that little something extra to your party decorations! How to make it! Buy one or more balloons. Preferably a larger size, so that it is not dragged down by the weight of the plant string. Select sisal string or fishing line as the base for the plant. Don’t forget to secure the balloon or hang a weight from the bottom so that it does not float away. Select your choice of climbing plant, and wrap it around the string. Add a couple of your favorite flowers to provide the finishing touch. Photo: Pinterest
