Valentine's Geek Out: Carnation Cones

I'll admit it. I love Valentine's Day. It's one of my favorites. It might even be THE favorite (I know—WHOA). It's just so pink and festive. It's not serious. You don't have to worry about buying things for seventeen different people. It's just about you and one other person. It's cute. You get to eat frouffy desserts. Flowers are generally involved. Everything has hearts on it. Heck, you can even be anti-Valentine's Day and make it fun. What is not to love?

I adore February issues of magazines because they're usually centered around this holiday. I came across this little craft idea in Martha Stewart Living and I thought it was too adorable not to share. They look like ice cream cones! My goodness, don't you just want to sprinkle these floral cones everywhere? And the best part? Carnations are pretty stinking cheap. While, of course, they'd look lovely with hydrangeas or peonies, let's face it. You can get a bouquet of carnations for the cost of one single hydrangea stem. Brilliant, right? You can download the clip-art for the cones here.
