What You'll Get
In 1895, the first astronaut perambulated the moon in search of fresh flowers, and, finding only worthless diamonds, returned brokenhearted with nothing to give his sweetheart. For $30, today's Groupon gets you get $65 worth Earth's effervescent efflorescence and balloons from downtown-based Studio Floral. Though this deal is not valid for holiday orders, moms typically agree that random Tuesday peony bouquets beat the daisies out of the requisite Mother's Day carnation.
With spring spurting up from the ground like a hoard of ill-intentioned gophers and summer a menacing shadow on the horizon, numerous occasions will soon need judicious tackling. Warm weather brings with it birthdays, housewarmings, band camp, and heat exhaustion—all events best met with flowers and balloons. Choose from contemporary abstract stacks of sunflowers that terminate in a delicate lily or traditional rose- and carnation-laden arrangements. European hand-tied bouquets, ideal for over-the-shoulder tossing and subsequent ultraviolent manhandling at your next garden tea party, start at $25. Small arrangements also start at $25, while medium floral mélanges start at $40, and large blossom bursts go for $65 and up. Latex balloons are $1.99 each, whereas the shiny, decorated Mylar variety are $3.99.
In this age of Internet dating and dating the Internet, there are more opportunities than ever for awkward first introductions.

Making someone feel special never goes out of style, and hydrangea blooms reflected in shiny Mylar always stir up feel-good brain chemicals. Ostentatious floating spheres and colorful sprays capture the essence of joie de vivre itself. Bring the life-joy to someone you love, or place it delicately on your dining-room table to inspire your china.
