If it weren't for flowers, bees could only suck nectar from picnic sandwiches, cream sodas, and goblins' tears. Give your honey the sweetest stuff with today's Groupon: $25 for $50 worth of flowers, plants, or gift baskets at Continental Florist.
Continental is more than an ordinary blossom abode; it also stocks a full selection of house and tropical plants, all waiting to be adopted by loving humans who won't be embarrassed when photosynthesis happens in front of houseguests. The selection includes bright magenta azaleas, fluffy hydrangea globes, delicate orchids, and many leafy wonders. Surprise a special somebody with simple yellow daisies and wispy willow in a small Gerber vase ($35). Say happy birthday to a sweet-toothed coworker with a candy bouquet ($35), or send a healthy basket of fresh fruit ($45) to the aging superhero down the street. Beyond that, gift baskets can be customized to include just about anything, including chocolates, cheeses, themed gifts, or bottled genies with a few remaining wish-grants.
Alcoholic beverages can't be included in gift baskets.
Continental florist was took first place in the Alabama State Florists' Association's 2001 Table Top Competition, and owner Barbara Orr was named Florist of the Year at the ASFA's 2004 Convention & Trade Fair.
