What You'll Get
Flowers give mouths something to do during tangos, turn vases into useful things, and can even express hard-to-verbalize emotions such as "suspicion that the newcomer to your rich uncle's book club is a traitor, or at the very least, an orangutan in human clothes." Today’s Groupon celebrates the many utilities of the flower with $40 worth of beautiful flora from Bell and Trunk Flowers for $20, all custom-arranged by Bell and Trunk's fastidious florists. Delivery is available for an additional fee.
With flowers of all varieties shooting up from the earth willy nilly and helter skelter, Bell and Trunk Flowers's seasoned stem-benders orchestrate this chaos of color into beautiful custom bouquets and arrangements. With $40 worth of flower-purchasing power, you can get a full bouquet of a dozen roses with attractive greens. Or make your bouquet a miniature garden of lilies, hydrangeas, peonies, tulips, gerbera daisies, ranunculus, and draculas (a dangerously sexy Transylvanian seasonal that only blooms at night and survives by leeching pollen from surrounding flowers). Flowers are priced by the stem for maximum customization.
A well-chosen bouquet can turn your home into a lush veranda without having to take out the kitchen walls with a sledgehammer. It can also act as a ready-made apology for the inevitable cranberry-sauce-and-cornbread-casserole incident at Thanksgiving. Today's Groupon will cover you for both eventualities.
