Like faces and stadium-based JumboTron screens, flowers can express many sentiments, from “I love you” to “I’m sorry I spilled peanuts on your shoes.” Let a bouquet do the talking with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of fresh flowers at Finishing Touch Florist & Gifts in Bellevue. This Groupon does not apply to delivery fees and is not valid for Teleflora and FTD gift items, including commemorative containers.
Finishing Touch’s blooming bunch of employees has been handcrafting beautiful bouquets, corsages, and other flowery arrangements for more than 20 years. Petal gatherers can choose from more than two-dozen rose arrangements, surprising a sweetie with a classic 12-pack of boxed stems ($64.99) or foiling an enemy with the Perfect Harmony’s double-dose of hand-tied bouquets ($64.99/small). New grads of high school, college, or the grammar-police academy will enjoy the Best Year, a collection of orange gerbera daisies, jade roses, hot-pink carnations, and other fine foliage ($48.99/small). Alternately, a simple vase of pink-and-white Stargazer lilies ($32.99/small) makes a thoughtful sympathy statement, and a gigantic, daisy-filled Sunny Skies basket ($36.99/small) shows family members that summer has finally arrived in their front foyer.
Finishing Touch Florist & Gifts
When assembled correctly, a floral arrangement acts much like a poem. Each flower is a different verse, and together, the vibrant blooms convey messages of love, congratulations, or sympathy. The local florists at Finishing Touch Florist & Gifts make for excellent poets, each one fluent in a centriels-old floral vocabulary. Whenever a customer steps into their shop looking to celebrate an anniversary or a newborn child, the talented florists can deftly pullout a daisy, which represents innocence, a fern to express sincerity, or a rose, which of course conveys deep passion. The florists can arrange this last symbolic bloom into more than two dozen creations, with hues of red, pink, white, and other colors.
Once ready, these bouquets can add their fresh colors and scents to romantic evenings or perhaps even a wedding. However, sometimes the only reason to celebrate is a change in the seasons. Look to the shop's storefront window for a rotating lineup of flowers that herald the coming of spring, summer, winter, fall, and the secret fifth season only three people know about.
