Who Needs Flowers When Pickle Bouquets Exist?

Giving the object of your affection a bouquet of flowers is a popular romantic gesture, but it’s a little played out, don’t you think? Instead of reaching for the roses and carnations, why not offer your sweetie a pickle bouquet?

  1. Yes, they exist. Food-based arrangements have been around now featuring everything from fruit to candy, so it’s only natural that now there are pickle bouquets too, right? Grillo’s Pickles in Boston claims to have the world’s best pickles, so they’ve created a beautiful edible arrangement for your next special occasion.
  2. If you don’t live local, don’t worry. You don’t have to live in Boston to enjoy a Grillo’s pickle bouquet. The shop ships nationwide via their website and they were nice enough to create a whole tutorial to help you make one of these arrangements at home. All you need is some pickles, some wooden skewers, and a vase of your choice. The rest is all up to you.
  3. You can customize your bouquet with whatever you’d like. It doesn’t have to be 100% pickles. Why not spice things up a bit with some cherry tomatoes, little pieces of cheese, or other savory nibbles that you know your recipient will appreciate? The world is truly your oyster, so you can make your pickle bouquet as fabulous as you’d like.
  4. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner… The holiday of love is less than two months away, so if you have a special someone in your life that you want to surprise with a deliciously romantic treat come February 14, you know what you need to do. Stock up on your boo’s favorite pickles and other salty snacks and get ready to create an edible arrangement they’ll never forget. And hey, even if you’re single you can always make one of these for yourself.
