Due to their long-standing role as the symbol of love, flowers are a much more welcome token of affection than a romantic note attached to an easily frightened wolverine. Ensure a well-received message with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of flowers and plants at Mancuso's Florist in St. Clair Shores or ordered online. Most prices include delivery to anywhere in the Detroit metro area.
Mancuso's, established in 1923 and ranked among the area’s top three local flower shops by CityVoters in 2010, stocks an ample array of fresh flowers, cultivated plants, and doting gifts. Dispatch a vibrant vase of flowers to someone special, such as the True Romantic arrangement ($134.95), or the Sassy Sunflowers ($44.95), a colorful collection of blooms that mimic the sun's high-noon hues and a comedian's repertoire of zingers. Potted plants such as the kalanchoe ($39.95) bestow a more enduring botanical bounty, and the porcelain Lenox Celebration Bag ($59.95, no flowers included) stylishly houses blossoms in a permanent carrying case. A friendly bloom expert helps clients find their way around the bright, cheery store as they seek the proper floral configuration for celebrating formal dances, an anniversary, a new baby, or a long-awaited truce between family pets. Online shoppers get access to floral consultants 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Frank Mancuso Sr. opened the original Mancuso's Florist in Detroit in 1923 and even kept the doors open on Sundays—a rarity at the time—in order to provide the citizens with the perfect arrangement any time they needed a gift or to dress up their homes. Since its launch close to 90 years ago, the store has opened and operated every single day of its existence. They've never stopped prioritizing customer service, accommodating special requests that include creating personalized baskets for memorable occasions and delivering arrangements early in the morning, before sweethearts crawl out of their cocoons.
The family's three generations of hard work have paid off. Mancuso’s Florist won Best Flowers in a 2012 poll of CityVoters, and readers of St. Clair Shores Patch named it Best Florist in 2012. In addition to providing breathtaking flowers and plants, the knowledgeable crew can recommend thoughtful gifts and novelties. Seasonal "epic roses"—which stand more than 5 feet tall and grow between two volcanoes in Ecuador—were featured on Fox 2 News and are ideal for expressing affection to an NBA player.
