What You'll Get
Flowers, once removed of their thorns, are just as cuddly as declawed stuffed animals or burlap sacks filled with fresh marshmallows. Snuggle up to a botanical buddy with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fresh flowers plus delivery from Carlone's Florist in Portsmouth (up to a $59 value).
Operated by the Carlone family since 1954, Carlone's Florist churns out fresh, carefully designed arrangements that boast a bevy of awards including Rhode Island Monthly's 2009 Readers' Pick and Newport Life Magazine's best flowers honors. Customers can choose from a selection of preconceived floral notions, or design their own based on the flowers that harmonize best with a favorite painting or mannequin. A purple vase of pink carnations, yellow daisies, stargazer lilies, and white larkspur ($45) recalls a summer sunset, and breakfasts become botanic royalty with a centerpiece of gerber daisies, sunflower, alstroemeria, and hydrangea ($80).
With this Groupon, customers also receive free floral freighting. 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.
