I work with quite a few ladies in our office, and have seen many a flower arrangement delivered come through our doors, but this is absolutely the first time I’ve ever seen one of these Edible Arrangements. How sweet is that!
Diner AC was the lucky girl recipient, with her boyfriend now officially nominated as the “BEST BOYFRIEND IN THE WORLD”! Common ladies, if you’re man had these delivered to you at your workplace, wouldn’t you think he’s the GREATEST?!
What I especially appreciate about this, being the practical-thinking guy that I am, is that not only is it pretty to look at, but you can also eat it! Plus it’s healthy for you to boot. Try eating a dozen roses and baby’s breath then tell me how you feel afterward. lol
Here’s another angle of it…
Diner AC was so kind to share this with us, and I must note, the strawberries, pineapple and grapes selected for this were in prime condition, perfectly ripe, sweet, juicy and delicious. They were also flawless, appearance-wise. How cool is the heart-shaped cut-out of the pineapple. Awe da’ cute! lol
It was actually a little too pretty to eat, and we were all kinda’ reluctant to start picking at it. lol
The first thing I thought when looking at it was that I’d love to throw that all in a blender and make a smoothie! Another thought was to dust Li Hing powder over the whole thing, as you know me how I like to doctor stuff up. Another idea I thought of, is that they should deliver this included with a bowl of chocolate that you pop in the microwave oven to melt, then use to dip the strawberries in. Well you know, the ladies like that kinda’ stuff. For me, nah, the strawberries are fine by itself.
Here’s how they’re stuck in the glazed ceramic (yes, ceramic, not plastic!) planter…
Notice they use Kale as the “greens” at the base. I believe there’s an oasis under it to hold the plastic arrangement spikes in place. Also notice there’s heart on this side of the pot, which was actually the front of the arrangment. I took a photo of the backside. Duh. The arrangement was even all the way around, so no biggie.
Someone in our office reminded Diner AC to make sure she keeps it watered so the fruits don’t die. lol Who knows? It might grow more fruits! lol
Here’s how it arrived all wrapped up…
Here’s the label, so you can see some other styles you can choose…
So ladies, if you’re reading this, here’s an idea: Bookmark this posting. Then, the next time a special occasion rolls around the corner, like say your birthday, an anniversary or Valentine’s Day next February, put this posting up (or at least just the photo of the Edible Arrangement), then put the monitor to sleep. Then stick a Post-It® note on the screen (or frame around it), and simply write on it, “HINT, P.S. I Love You”. Then when he comes home from work he’ll see it and voila, there ya’ go! And he better get it for you, or he’s sleeping in the dog house!
If you’re one of the fellaz, now you’ve got a great gift idea for your lady! I know I’m getting my lady one of these on the next special occasion.
