This Pickle Bouquet Is a Tasty Alternative to Flowers for Valentine’s Day
Forget the flowers. Give 'em a pickle bouquet!
Roses and chocolates are so last Valentine’s Day. Want to show your sweetheart how much you really care? Surprise them with a pickle bouquet for Valentine’s Day…or really, any day they need some cheering up.
What’s the Story Behind the Pickle Bouquet?
The pickle bouquet was made famous by Grillo’s Pickles, a brand whose pickled products can be found in grocery stores. Founder Travis Grillo says, “Not only is a pickle bouquet more beautiful than a dozen red roses, and healthier than a standard box of chocolate, it’s also far more creative.”

How Do I Make a Pickle Bouquet?
This Valentine’s Day project is surprisingly simple. According to the Grillo’s website, you’ll need:
- Multiple varieties of pickles
- Wooden skewers
- Vase (or pickle jar)
- Savory garnish such as hot peppers, mini bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, olives, etc.
- Fresh dill or greenery, for extra garnish
Spear the pickles and other veggies with the skewers and arrange them like a bouquet in the vase. Finish with whatever decor you’d like. Present your masterpiece to your beloved pickle enthusiast and make their day!
You can even make your own crunchy, tangy pickles at home to really show your love.
