In Bloom New York is a family-owned-and-operated center that has spent more than 35 years bringing botanical beauty to a variety of events. A wing of Plant Shed New York Flowers, the shop's grizzled green-thumbs use their fluency in the secret language spoken only by flowers (Dutch) to craft creative floral arrangements from the freshest seasonal blossoms. For a multi-sensory massage that tickles the eyes as much as the nose, combine purple-hued lisianthus and cool hydrangeas with the warmth of dahlias and alstromeria, the concentric circles of ranunculus, and the classic beauty of the rose ($75). The delicate interplay of hydrangeas and dahlias with substantial kale ($100) adds a welcome dash of color to any black-and-white private eye's office. And few things bewitch a loved one like a mix-tape of hydrangeas, kale, and exquisitely delicate cymbidium orchids ($125). Whether looking to express romantic affection, friendly appreciation, or intimate knowledge of the color wheel, In Bloom has the soil-born symbols you need to convey emotions that so often elude words.
As beautiful as its bouquets are, In Bloom truly excels at transforming bland event halls and empty tabletops into gorgeous, occasion-appropriate explosions of color and texture. Take a gander at its photo gallery to marvel at the floral fireworks In Bloom has put together for weddings, corporate events, and retail displays—and consider the Groupon-exclusive 10% discount for future gatherings of funerary violinists or Baker Street Irregulars. As a nod to the environment that gives birth to its goods, In Bloom is also devoted to sustainable business practices, such as composting all plant waste, utilizing reusable containers, and hosting an on-site greenhouse, where it grows its own exotic flowers, year-round blooms, and Audrey IIs.
Floral arrangement materials are seasonal. Arrangements can be delivered within Manhattan for an extra $20, though delivery will not be available November 24–25, December 25, or January 1. Valentine's Day orders must be made by noon on February 5.
