Flowers—like musical performances, synchronized swims, and frantically waving two on-fire oven mitts in the sky—express the emotions that words cannot. Express the inexpressible with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of flowers at Privet Flowers in Flushing. Delivery is available to addresses in Queens (for an additional $5) as well as Manhattan or Nassau County (for an additional $10).
Privet's floral architects build elegant edifices with stems, blossoms, and a variety of vases fit for any florally in-need occasion. Filling the air with a light springtime scent, table arrangements ($50+) avert eyes from unwashed dishes and imploding meatloaves. Similarly, a Purple Vanda orchid ($60) makes a thoughtful housewarming gift, and a simple white-hydrangea bouquet ($5/stem) congratulates brand new brides without stealing their thunder. Stuffy offices freshen up when peonies ($6/stem), and tulips ($10/10 stems) welcome bundles of joy with bursts of color, foreshadowing future incidents involving finger paints or that mysterious, rainbow-colored cream that’s served during Neverland food fights.
In addition to artful arrangements, Privet also crafts custom designs in various shades and shapes, from heart-shaped rose corsages to floral renderings of 2-D images. Because flower stock varies from season to season, all items are subject to availability, especially items that only bloom on leap day.
