Nothing says “I Love You” for Valentine’s Day like surprising your sweetie. Take a page from Casanova’s book and decorate your bedroom, bathroom and a romantic dinner table for two with rose petals. We’ve got an order of 6,000 fresh rose petals from farm-direct florist, FiftyFlowers.com to make all of your Valentine’s Day dreams come true.

We’ll ship it out ASAP, so you can create a romantic chamber worthy of the world’s greatest lover himself. The petals will stay fresh for up to 6 weeks when refrigerated.

    I am 1/2 DIY and 1/2 Store Buyer. Love to give people homemade goodies but Sweethearts (in the box) are a must and who can resist a delicious cherry Jelly Heart???? Happy Heart Day everyone…. : – )

    Always handmade! It started many years ago when my Dad always hand wrote a card or note with candy for his four daughters. Our valentine tradition is a valentine treasure hunt with a small gift at the end.

    Honestly speaking I am a last minute type of person when it gets right down to it (handmade & bought). My husband has a very busy schedule. I find it very difficult to plan anything during February. I like to get ideas from others and if it's not too late then I will try it. We bought a new whirlpool spa two years ago and I can definitely see those rose petals inside it this year! Something different and special would help. My step-daughter's wedding anniverary is on the 14th and I would like to plan something special for them

    I've always been a DIY… my Mom was a great teacher, I learned the value of giving Heart Gifts(she called them) and my kids learned from me… It don't matter what holiday it is, a Gift from the Heart is always something speical, Hand Made with Love.. Oh I do the store thing too.. A rose or another gift, but nothing could be better then a Valentine card full of love and made from the heart. A cake in the shape of a heart with pink coconut on top, and the card I made setting right there beside it.. all those feelings, all the memories that went into making both.. Now that's a Heart Gift… One that Touch's Your Heart and Theirs.. __Yep im DIY all the Way!

    I am definitely a DIY'er! It extends to all areas of my life. I buy something simple and then use my creativity to step it up a notch. For example a simple store bought coffee mug becomes a wonderful gift when it is stuffed with homemade bisccotti's, a chocolate dipped spoon and a couple of dove heart shaped chocolates all wrapped together in cello wrap and finished with a wire ribbon bow. Yoila! Happy Valentines Day!

    I am a DIY and a store bought kind of girl. I have made artwork and cards etc, but I also like to throw in something useful, like new shirts or shoes or something cool. We live on a farm so we don't always have time to make something for each other.!
