The gardener of love
The same hearts that you have made before can also serve you to create an original gardener like this.

Cardboard and cloth (optional) to shape hearts and leaves.
Wooden rods for stems. You can coat them with green tape.
Sand to fill the pot. This will make it easier for you to stick the rods and prevent the wind from pulling it.
This gardener will be the perfect accompaniment to the decorated pots.
Decorative and aromatic candles

But don't just put them on the table. If you have enough space, use them to surprise your partner with an illuminated path that leads to the table.
Remember to always place them in transparent containers that resist heat. And if you want to give it a softer touch, you can paint some pink stones and place them at the bottom of the bowl.
