Flowers herald both the arrival of spring and new romance, all without the panic caused by sounding the city's love siren. Master the language of petals with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of fresh flowers and plants at Conner Park Florist with locations in St. Clair Shores and on Conner Avenue in Detroit.
Conner Park Florist's botanic buffs have been artfully assembling bountiful arrays of fresh blossoms by hand for more than 60 years. The best-selling Teleflora’s Be Happy bouquet of yellow roses, daisy spray chrysanthemums, and oregonia delightfully sprouts from a smiley face coffee mug ($32.95), offering a cheery alternative to the cold gifts of the modern age, such as emoticon emails and boutonnieres of prismatic floppy disks. Reveal secret feelings for a crush or spoil a pet honeybee with a Be My Love bouquet, which culls red roses, carnations, white asiatic lilies, and chrysanthemums in a ruby-red glass vase ($42.95). Conner Park Florist’s stash of plants give recipients the gift that keeps on growing, including the Sweet Violet Trio that amalgamates one purple and two lavender african violet plants within a wicker basket ($37.95). Otherwise, a small Simply Elegant spathiphyllum ($42.95) speaks to simplicity with lush green leaves and white blossoms in a natural nacelle.
Orders can be upgraded to deluxe if customers purchase multitudes of flowers in the same style and color of the original arrangement. Additionally, premium orders further enhance arrangements with more blooms, more varieties of flowers, and more attention paid to removing devious water-squirting mechanisms hidden by undomesticated clowns in the wild. Though not included with this Groupon, Conner Park Florist can add mylar balloons, stuffed animals, and chocolate to round out day-making bonanzas.
