There is nothing more romantic than an old fashioned ice cream soda shared with your favorite sweetie. So here is a "sweet treat" for Valentine's Day that you can set out on your desk or, if you can't resist the M&M's, you can pull out the flowers and eat the M&M's and fill the glass with rock salt or colored sand. I choose Pink because it is one of my favorite colors but you can make this any color you want or fill the glass with any kind of candy you would like. This could also be used for a birthday gift also.
Time to complete: 1 hour, including shopping at the Walmart
Glue lace and ribbon trim around the upper rim of the glass. Tie a fluffy bow and glue where edges of lace meet on the glass. Fill glass with M&M's. Cut three carnations from the bunch of carnations and one open rose from the bunch of rose. Tuck the carnations in the glass in a triangle shape and add a rose to the center. Tuck in a couple of straws.

Do you put anything directly over the top of the glass (after filling it with candy and before adding the flowers) so the candy won't fall out when you're transporting it to someone?
No I did not but you sure could. I transported mine yesterday to the single mom school nurse who I wanted to do something special for. Did not lose one M&M the flowers are in there pretty sturdy and keep the candies in.
