Flowers are like teenagers, blooming gracefully into adulthood so they can brighten up otherwise lifeless cubicles. Witness the budding innocence of nature with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a Flower Me Party from Flower Me Events in Dobbs Ferry (a $115 value).
Flower Me's binary stars of chic, modern floristry, Margaret Egiziaco and Stefanie Diaz lead intimate parties of up to seven students covering the basics of bouquetship. With a dozen roses supplemented by accenting fillers and lush greens straight from New York's flower district, burgeoning botanical artists can create their own take-home mini meadow with expert guidance and the freedom to create arrangements as unique as a butterfly with a human tattoo. Though most sessions are designed for newcomers, intermediate and advanced lessons are available on request, covering topics such as quieting a back-sassing tulip and fending off boutonniere-seeking bees.
