I have become a big fan of the roses in a box presentation.

The price tag that comes with a dozen roses in a box- not so much.

Here’s what I’m thinking:

Pick up this bright pink heart-shaped paper gift box by Spritz at Target.  Line the bottom of the box and the inner lid with a heart-shaped paper doily.

Pick up a dozen red roses at one of the many flower tents pitched and perfect for your Valentine’s Day flower needs.

Cut plastic wrap to fit the inside of the box.  Drop in a fresh flower floral foam round disk or cut a square one to fit.  Add water to soak disk.

Cut the rose stems to where the roses rest slightly above the rim of the box.  Pack the roses tight and graduate the height of a select few.

At presentation time, loosely weave pink silk ribbon in a zigzag pattern over the top of the bouquet.
