A Sweet idea

Valentine's Day idea...from Martha herself!
Flowers and candy are the touchstones of courtship and romance right? But handing over a bouquet and a box of chocolates isn't the only way to show you're sweet on someone. What about this sweet idea?
Place a vase inside another that's taller and at least 1 inch wider; if the rims don't align, add candy to the outer vase to eliminate the height difference. Fill the gap between vases with candy. Fill small vase halfway with water. Add your choice of flowers...voila!

Pretty, but I don't have the vases or the flowers. You can send one of those!

That wouldn't work for me! I just like the chocolate. Lots and LOTS of CHOCOLATE!! lol
In fact,I'm going to tell Tony right out this year --- please don't get me any flowers. They're just going to sit there and die. He doesn't even have to get me an expensive box of chocolates - just a nice big Hershey bar will do! :) haha
