Flowers, once removed of their thorns, are just as cuddly as declawed stuffed animals or burlap sacks filled with fresh marshmallows. Snuggle with a botanical buddy with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fresh flowers plus delivery (up to a $59 value) from Carlone's Florist in Portsmouth. This deal is not valid on holidays.
Operated by the Carlones since 1954, Carlone's Florist pledges to deliver fresh flowers arranged with attention to detail and unwavering dedication to customer service. Choose from a selection of preconceived floral notions, or design your own based on the flowers that harmonize best with a favorite painting or mannequin. An all-white vase of snap dragons, mums, and caspia ($49.99) accentuates a summer tan while breakfasts will become botanic royalty with a centerpiece of delphinium, alstroemeria, and hydrangeas ($49.99).
Flowers are an honorable way to apologize to a neighbor for a hungry pet goat, or to remind yourself that you've been on your own mind a lot lately. Reference the delivery area to see if the flowers can go as far as desired. Call before 11 a.m. for same-day delivery, and place custom orders three days prior to the desired surprise.
Carlone's Florist was the recipient of Rhode Island Monthly's 2009 Readers' Pick for best florist.
