Parker's Flowers has been catering to the romantic, congratulatory, sympathetic, apologetic, "just because," and seasonal-affective whims of Burlington County for more than 75 years. Whatever the occasion, be it birthday, boss, or baby related, Parker's will passionately provide you with the proper petals pronto. In addition to classically vibrant floral arrangements such as the Cherish Spring ($55–$75), Perfect Love ($75–$100), and Here Comes the Sun ($40–$50) bouquets, Parker's offers modern and tropical designs, fruity and fulfilling gift baskets, and a wide range of unique house plants and orchids.
Not much has changed at Fink Flowers & Gifts in the last half a century. The fragrant boutique still has the same address it did when it opened in 1956. It’s still manned by the same family that's been filling vases, wrangling stuffed animals, and arranging scrumptious gift baskets for three generations. It’s this consistency that has kept guests coming back for all their floral needs, as well as greeting cards, candles, and original paintings by Artists of Bristol on the Delaware. First-timers to the shop step into what feels like a scene out of a fairy tale. Dotted with vivid butterflies, winding vines crisscross the boutique's ceiling, suspended above shelves crowded with vibrant bouquets and eclectic seasonal displays. The staff invites visitors to recycle by bringing empty vases, wicker baskets, or farm-raised piñatas to the shop; the empty vessels can be exchanged for a free loose bunch of flowers.
Chewier than baseball bats, the cookie is a perfect dessert food. Share the gift of edible holiday heroes with cookie baskets featuring Santa and spouse or Hanukkah-themed edibles. Cookies are a great way to send a message for any occasion, be it a birthday, a time to give thanks, or a Tuesday. Individually decorated cookies begin at $7.50 each, and birthday baskets start at $15.99. Cookies by Design’s lovely and lustful arrangements fulfill all the potential a cookie has from the day it’s planted in the ground as a seed to the day it’s shucked from its stalk.
The idea, really, is genius: edible fruits, chocolates and other snacks, tastefully arranged as bouquets, to be given out to coworkers, ordered for friends or handed to a special loved one. The Roxborough outpost of this national chain seeks to pair up customers with the arrangement of their dreams, often going well beyond the usual anniversaries and milestones to reach for a more personalized finish. Funkier options might include balloons and a stuffed bear; squeal-worthy pineapple cutouts of the wide-eyed Hello Kitty; or apple Fruit Truffles: Granny Smith apple pieces dipped in semisweet chocolate and dripped with toppings like cinnamon chocolate or white drizzle. Call ahead to choose your arrangement and have it delivered, or swing by the small shop to pick something up before any big occasion.
Just as a weatherman's monthly bonus varies with the temperature, the selection at NE Flower Boutique varies with the season. But regardless of the exotic flowers, roses, lilies, and orchids available to them, the shop's floral artists piece together tasteful bouquets that bloom from European baskets in a burst of color and aroma. Rose bouquets, wedding and prom displays, and sympathy arrangements capture the mood of a special event or carry twice the weight of words in expressing love, gratitude, or condolences. The staff also creates festive balloon displays and keeps hours seven days a week to accommodate last-minute requests.
