Bloomers Garden Center’s 2-acre nursery teems with plants, flowers, trees, and outdoor accouterments. Flowers blossom from 4-inch pots ($4.99) and ready-to-plant six-packs ($2.99) germinate into bouquets of pansies or snapdragons perfect for wooing a mate or SAT proctor. A rotating array of seasonal vegetables ($3.49 for a six-pack) fill home gardens with salads of broccoli, cabbage, swiss chard, and cauliflower accented by fruits such as tender bare-root strawberries ($3.49 for 10). Bloomers Garden Center grows much of its fledgling flora, from seed to rambunctious teen to full-fledged flower, onsite.
The showrooms at Abbey's Home Furnishings brim with furniture from top brands such as Ashley, Bassett, and Omnia Leather that suit every living space.

Couples can lounge across love seats and sofas upholstered in fine fabrics or plush leather ($799–$1,199), or take turns staring at saddleback bar stools ($69). With more than 50 different styles of family-room furniture, decorators can tailor living rooms according to almost any theme. Lonely bed frames fill the hole their last mattress left with beds of varying firmnesses, from cloud-like softness to less-yielding body buffers ($799–$1,299). Though not included with today's Groupon, furniture on its last legs finds salvation with Abbey's repair services, which give forlorn pieces their confidence back with necessary parts and heartfelt compliments.
Fruit, when disguised as flowers, are still fruit. Today's Groupon gets you $60 worth of delicious fresh fruit masquerading as flowers for $35 at Edible Arrangements (pick-up or delivery). The fruit bouquets, which are preservative-free, come in more than 50 dashing displays and can include chocolate-dipped strawberries, apple wedges, bananas, and more. They're cut at the peak of freshness and ripeness, so the fruit is totally ready to eat when delivered to your Halloween party, Halloween office meeting, or fruit-loving loved one's forlorn, fruit-less front stoop decorated for Halloween (if no one is home, Edible Arrangements will leave a notification slip or leave the arrangement with a trustworthy neighbor).
