FruitFlowers' adorable edible bouquets partner fresh-picked fruit with sumptuous chocolate. The deluxe dipped tulips and daisies basket includes an extra-large helping of both chocolate-covered and unadorned strawberry tulips offset by perky pineapple daisies with cantaloupe centers and juicy grape accents. The boxed set of 12 strawberries are dipped in dark chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate for a delicious giftable treat. All bouquets are cut at the peak of freshness and ripeness, so the fruit's ready to eat when you bring it to your Thanksgiving party, Thanksgiving office meeting, or fruit-loving loved one's forlorn, fruitless front stoop decorated for Thanksgiving. Order online or by phone, and pick up your yummy arrangement at the Ashburn store or have it delivered for an additional charge (not included in this Groupon).
Not all art is flat. Take a sentimental macaroni painting, for example, or a baby's first shoe. Objects like these are art, because they mean so much their owners. So the seasoned artisans of Ashburn Art & Framing make it their mission to devise safe encasements for all variety of valuable, from an old, analog photograph to a bunch of Buffalo nickels super-glued together. Ashburn's arsenal includes a few prefab frames made of wood or metal, but the team's true forte emerges when crafting custom-cut frames designed specifically for the thing being enveloped. Oval frames can complement an expired passport photo, or Plexiglas cages can hold a signed baseball. And looking at Ashburn's framing manifesto, one gets the sense that there are no limits to the objects that can be enshrined, or any strict guideline on what can be considered a piece of art.
