Valentine inventory is aways a puzzle to me! What I think is great, is not what everyone thinks is great! (Who wouldn't want nesting pink and chocolate polka dot bowls)?! Apparently, not everyone thinks of that as valentine fare. One can always incorporate frosted red votives etched with hearts (they're selling fine). We have a darling white photo frame with raised swiss dots and oxox on the face. White french tulips seem to speak the language of love to me! Or, how would a set of four dessert plates be, with assorted heart motifs? My niece, Emily, could definitely make good use of those with some stylish cupcakes served on them!
On the whole, valentine inventory that is readily available through vendors is trite and too cutie. I am telling you, it's a very difficult season to buy for.
That being said, I have come up with a great idea! Take a look at the tiny heart-shaped in red, pink and hot pink ramekins filled with our family fudge recipe! Never mind that I can never make money selling it.......I would have to charge $10.00 lb! It is about the best thing you can imagine and generally speaking it is looked forward to by all during the Holidays and for Valentine's day.
Hope you like it! Maybe this year will be the year I finally figure it out. What do you want for your Valentine purchases? Let me know if this is it!
