Such a clever idea! I could see using some metallic yarn to give it a bit of sparkle, or even gluing on a gem or two here and there for some extra glamor! Adding a ribbon or fabric sash to the base pot with a pretty bow might be a nice way to present it as a gift, or to reflect the colors of the hearts! Super project!
