The popular metaphor of a rose growing from concrete can represent the dramatic struggles of a youth breaking free from the restraints of his station or the dramatic midlife crisis of the Orkin Man. See 12 roses grow from metalized ceramic with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a True Romance Bouquet at Cleveland Florist, redeemable at its Old Shell Road and Airport Boulevard locations (a $59.95 value).
The flower tamers at Cleveland Florist have been crafting artful bouquets for five decades. The True Romance Bouquet from the Faith Hill Collection abounds with one dozen long-stem red roses, elegantly cradled in a metalized ceramic vase. This bumblebee nirvana is accentuated with seeded eucalyptus, variegated pittosporum, and seven brownie points. Delivery fees are not included with this Groupon, but can be purchased at the normal rate.
Ulysses and Florence Cleveland opened their first flower shop in Toulminville, selling arrangements and seeds to locals in 1948. Five decades and three generations later, the flower shop may have moved but its dedication to fresh florals and greenery remains strong. Cleveland Florist showcases a variety of imported flowers, arranged into colorful bouquets to celebrate weddings, birthdays, and births. Clients can have a pitcher of yellow roses delivered to a sweetheart or send a spray of pink buds to express sympathy for a lost loved one. The shop makes every effort to bring these flowers into people's everyday lives from creating displays at the local library to hosting a segment on how to create a holiday centerpiece on the Rachel Ray show.
