Creative Ideas for Valentine’s Day Displays

Straight from the Heart
A heart-shaped cake makes a tasty treat, but try tempting your senses of smell and sight with a floral arrangement set into a heart-shaped baking pan. Simply fill a pan, available from such sources as Wilton and King Arthur Flour, with floral foam or Oasis. Cut rose stems 1 to 2 inches below the bud—we used about 2 dozen—and insert into Oasis, filling in with sprigs of baby’s breath. For the finishing touch, add a pretty satin ribbon around the outside of the pan, and secure with a hot-glue gun. Keep the Oasis moist, and the arrangement will last for days.
