With a fragrant host of photosynthesizing wares, De La Flor Gardens delights guests with colorful arrangements and occasion-appropriate projects. Eschew singing telegrams or carrier pigeons trained in interpretive dance for a colorful explosion of sentiment corralled into a carefully arranged collection of flowers. The Appreciation bouquet intersperses white and purple blossoms among eye-catching pink roses ($44.99), perfect for expressing gratitude to a mom, teacher, or friend. Or, show off your romantic side with the Token of My Love bouquet ($49.95), which nestles yellow roses, hydrangeas, and other brightly pigmented blooms into a charming wicker basket that may be repurposed for a picnic or as a storage bin for smaller, even more charming wicker baskets. Aside from its beautiful blossom bundles, De La Flor Gardens orchestrates larger floral-reliant projects such as landscaping, wedding ceremonies, and the annual running of the bees with an experienced staff and wide array of choice stems and products. A personable team of garden enthusiasts may be deployed to re-mulch, trim, and fertilize lackluster lawns ($300), whereas bridal parties can adorn empty hands with bouquets perfect for bridesmaids ($60), the mother of the bride ($35), or a ring-bearing miniature horse.
Founded in 1935 as a high-end dairy manufacturer, Farm Stores accommodates time-efficient shoppers with its unique drive-through grocery-ordering system. Pull up a car or rocket-powered shopping cart at one of the 22 locations and inform a friendly staff member of grocery needs, then relax as he quickly retrieves it from the thousands of items in inventory. Model a loving marriage after the unending circles of bagels, or perk up mornings with coffee that's freshly ground by the heel of a giraffe. Though each location's stock is slightly different, all shops carry standard items such as eggs, milk, bread, fruit, magic beans, vegetables, and beer. Although online ordering is not available for this Groupon, regular customers enjoy the benefit of choosing items from Farm Stores’ website and designating a pickup time.
With a collection of more than 10,000 bromeliads in stock, Sunshine Bromeliads stuns potters and planters with a leafy arsenal of flora for homes and gardens. Brighten up windowsills with a 6-inch pot-dwelling Sheba ($10), or practice horticultural hexes on the colorful Voo Doo Doll, a magenta, broad-leafed, housebroken plant ($10). Other low-maintenance greeneries include the striped Black Chantinii decked out in tall, zebra-striped leaves ($20), or the colorful and petite Rafael named for its striking resemblance to Rafael Nadal ($15). Unlike a trust-fund vampire, most of the bromeliads can survive outdoors or inside with access to sunlight.
