Handmade bouquets can be awfully thoughtful, whereas bouquets made of hands tend to be bulky and illegal. For special occasions, leave it to professional bouquets with the help of today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of flowers and gifts at Heritage Florist in Medford. This Groupon is valid for in-store purchases only.
Heritage Florist blossoms with dew-fresh, handcrafted flower arrangements in eye-catching designs created by green-thumbed growers with more than 50 years of floral experience. Pick up a Daisy Cheer bouquet ($35) to perk up a lonely table, or arrive at a host's house bearing the Yellow and Lavender Delight arrangement ($48) bursting with roses, asters, daisies, and dish-washing gnomes. The Brighten Your Day bouquet cheers up bloom lovers with red, yellow, and purple chrysanthemum and alstroemeria buds ($45), and vases filled with a dozen hot-pink roses ($55) help express intent to potential suitors. Neglected corners of parlors and living rooms transform into hospitable forests when decorated with the Dish Garden with Pinks live arrangement ($50), a wicker basket packed with such typical garden sights as ivy and neighborhood kids' baseballs.
The intimate shop flaunts a friendly, accommodating staff standing at the ready to discuss flower-related conundrums, such as which color carnation best says "friendship" and whether roses still smell sweet if you call them Stanley.
