Like children, flowers are not born with romantic aptitude but must learn it from a lifetime of listening to the whispered sweet nothings of amorous bees. Pollinate relationships with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $55 worth of flower arrangements, plants, and gifts at Flowers Etc..
The flower artisans at Flowers Etc. add living color to special occasions such as birthdays and graduations with hundreds of flower arrangements, plants, and gifts. For the Burst of Autumn arrangement ($39.95), florists nestle fresh yellow and orange blooms into a glass vase, add preserved oak leaves, and tie on a bow so it can accompany its new owner as a date to cocktail parties. Noses sniff the aroma of a Fragrance Vase ($41.95) filled with spray roses, alstroemeria and miniature carnations, and eyes turn towards the pumpkin-like hues of 12 premium long-stem orange roses ($34.95). The dark-green leaves of a small spathiphyllum plant ($40) peek out of a decorative wicker basket and bloom with white flowers that pep up office desks. Flowers Etc. can also enhance life's important events with non-herbaceous gifts such as a teddy bear with multicolored balloons ($24.95), which can celebrate a new baby’s birth or high-school graduate’s customary hot air balloon flight to college. Though not included with this Groupon, delivery is available for an additional fee within a 10-mile radius of the 78213 zip code.
