Even the men folk can appreciate a bouquet, if it is bacon roses. Last year for our "betrothal anniversary" I made my husband a rose bacon bouquet. It works for mother's day as well if you happen to have a mother or mother-in-law who loves bacon.
This is not an original idea. I had seen other people doing bacon roses and wanted to do some for my husband. Like all things though, we can add our own personal touch. The bouquets I had seen either did not have any greenery, or they used fake leaves. I did not want bacon roses on plastic leaves. As much as possible, I like all my "food art" to be edible. After looking at some salad greens, I decided fresh parsley looked best for a bouquet. Roses are usually accompanied by baby's breath flowers. I thought for a good while before coming up with the idea to use cauliflower for the baby's breath.
