Flowers have always managed to say a lot, but they've rarely expressed sentiments so clearly and directly. This "floating" heart is made with pale shades of common, easily obtainable blossoms, such as carnations, mums, and hyacinths.
Flower Frogs are made of lead, pottery, glass, or bronze and sit at the bottom of a bowl or a vase to hold even the trickiest flower arrangements firmly in place. Keep several kinds on hand. The spiky variety are good for thin, flimsy stems, ones with holes are suited to the thicker stems of tulips and lilies, and hairpin frogs with wire loops are best for stiff stems and branches. They can be found at flea markets and garage sales, where they usually cost less than $2.
