The dedicated staff at Twin City Flowers meticulously arranges fresh flowers with an eye for detail, delivering vase creations and other gifts to local patrons, with same- or next-day delivery available for most orders. Like the acceptability of wearing white, flower offerings change with the seasons; recent bouquets include the autumnal Shocktail Martini Bouquet, which nestles roses and lilies in vivid fall hues inside an acrylic martini glass, playfully enhanced with straws and decorative spiders ($39.99+). A playful dash of color livens up cubicles in the form of a live African violet, cozily rooted in a 4.5-inch cube vase ($24.99), and a rose- and daisy-strewn Bucket of Birthday congratulates the receiver for their continued existence ($39.99+). Bedeck a Thanksgiving table with the Bountiful Cornucopia, in which an iconic basket is filled with fresh fruit and hand-tested by pilgrim impersonators prior to sale ($49.99+). Groupon holders looking to make larger purchases should call to confirm flora feasibility.
