Presenting loved ones with a bouquet of freshly picked flowers expresses more thoughtfulness than giving them a fistful of uprooted grass or gently blowing dandelion seeds in their face while they sleep. Exemplify the finer points of plant giving with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of flower arrangements or fruit baskets at The Flower Place in New Castle. Delivery to New Castle County is available for an additional fee.
The Flower Place's collection of pretty petals and gourmet baskets enlivens living spaces and marks special occasions with a flourish of artfully arranged color. Salute autumn’s crisp arrival with a bouquet of fall flowers, such as the Autumn Awe arrangement, laden with rich tones of orange, deep red, and yellow from gerberas, mini carnations, and asiatic lilies ($39.95). The Ghostly Gardens bouquet ($37.95) haunts tabletops with a googly-eyed ghost who hovers over orange roses and blue eryngium. The preternaturally optimistic Be Happy arrangement ($34.95) induces grins with bright daisies and roses bursting from the top of a happy-face mug.
Gourmet baskets filled with goodies such as fresh fruit, potted plants, and cookies are an alternative gift or a congressional bribe idea, with options such as the Health Nut basket, which wraps pears, apples, and trail mix into an aesthetically pleasing wicker fortress ($42.95).
