Flowers—like synchronized swimming and frantically waving two on-fire oven mitts in the sky—express emotions that words cannot. Convey the unconveyable with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a traditional or High Style floral arrangement at The Fresh Flower and Gift Basket Company (a $50 value).
The Fresh Flower and Gift Basket Company’s cadre of professional florists assemble artistic and unique arrangements from fresh, long-lasting blooms delivered to the shop three to four times per week. A hot-pink ceramic vase houses the traditional arrangement, which features a scene-stealing orange lily flanked by similarly hued gerbera-daisy bodyguards. Rounding out the punchy gathering, pink snapdragons add height, and Yoko Ono green button mums contribute anecdotes about sharing a name with a celebrity. Alternatively, the High Style arrangement sates modern petal palates with a sculpture-like assembly of exotic flowers. Gathered atop a sleek black container, the architectural composition stars a flightless bird of paradise longingly facing the skies, just as it was taught in its acting class for pensive flowers. A supporting cast of verdant flora, including equisetum, lime-green spider chrysanthemums, and variegated pittosporum, add contrast to the work. Once customers have placed their orders in the store, they can return later to pick up their newly minted masterpieces or choose to have their arrangement delivered for an additional fee.
