In 1895, the first astronaut perambulated the moon in search of fresh flowers, and, finding only worthless diamonds, returned brokenhearted with nothing to give his sweetheart. Today's $25 Groupon gets you $50 worth of Earth's effervescent efflorescence from Anthony Shane Florist. Stop by Anthony Shane's bright and friendly Cedar Avenue shop to pick up Valentine's Day delights, or order your flowers by phone (this Groupon cannot be applied toward online orders). Most flowers arrive on the same day if they're ordered before noon (with the exception of Valentine's Day orders, which should be placed before February 9).
Anthony Shane Florist specializes in traditional arrangements such as a dozen ruby-red Valentine's Day roses ($69) or a bouquet of white roses and lilies ($66). But the florists' freakish green thumbs also makes them quite skilled at European dish gardens, high-style arrangements, silk flowers, funeral designs, dried flowers, and tropicals. As such, you can put a Jimmy Buffett spin on this year's Valentine with the Paradise Found, an arrangement of Asiatic lilies and alstroemeria dotted with birds of paradise in a square black container ($60.95). For something less austere, cheer up the dinner table with a glass bowl of white daisies and solidago ($47.95).
If you would like your flowers delivered, Anthony Shane Florist serves Bloomington, Edina, Golden Valley, Minneapolis, St. Louis Park, St. Paul, and Wayzata; a local delivery fee of $9.95 will be added to each order.
All orders before Valentine's Day must be placed before February 9 to ensure delivery or pick-up on February 10—13, or pick-up on February 14. Usually closed on Sundays, Anthony Shane Florist will be open on Valentine's Day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for customers picking up pre-orders only.
