For more than 55 years, Ruth Messmer Florist has arranged daily deliveries of farm-fresh flowers and other tokens of affection into alluring bouquets and gift baskets. The sweet scent of pink stargazer lilies wafts over pink statice in the Pink Lily arrangement ($32.99+), and the Sunny Day Bouquet ($34.99+) teems with merry yellow roses, gold-flecked peruvian lilies, cushion poms, and tiny bottles of sunscreen. A white ceramic sleigh dashes across tabletops bearing scarlet roses, white chrysanthemums, red carnations, and lush greens in the Holiday Traditions arrangement ($39.99+), which is topped off with a festive red ribbon and shimmering red and gold globe ornaments. Bypass blooms for a basket of edible gifts, such as a chocolate-and-candy basket ($44.99+) of upscale sweets such as Ghirardelli chocolate bars, soft caramels, and vivid jellybeans, or try the gourmet basket ($39.99+) brimming with epicurean eats such as sausages, spreads, fruit, and wheels of cheese molded into Julia Child’s profile.
