LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Chris Olsen of Botanica Gardens is here encouraging you to give the right flowers to your sweetheart this Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Floral

You know me, always try to be completely different in everything you do from the norm. This includes picking the right cut flowers for your sweetheart this Valentine's Day. Please, please, please don't give the typical flowers you get wrapped up in cellophane from a grocery store. Instead this year, give a wonderful fresh arrangement created by talented floral designer. Spend just a little more and you will get alot more from your sweetheart. So instead of just a dozen roses, give a flower arrangement bursting with tropical floral and not just in your ordinary glass vase. About Vase in Little Rock is one such place to find the extraordinary. If you want to score major brownie points then expand your horizons.

Panic Attack

Some of you may just be realizing that Valentine's Day is just around the corner. You may be evening starting to panic. No worries, because Chris has a few tricks that are will save the day. Here are some easy ways to say I LOVE YOU...... Go to your local craft store and by an inexpensive glass jar. Now layer upon layer different kinds of Valentine's candy. What a visual sweet delight. Or better yet, take a heart shape box of candy and glue with an hot glue gun pictures of you and your loved one from over the years. I also take cut fresh flowers, such as carnations (they survive without water for days), and glue those as well to the lid.

I also like to re-purpose old Valentine's cards you can find at a flea market. Just rewrite an original love note or decorate with them for that thoughtful add touch.
