Cinematic historians recently discovered that the direct link between Film Noir and its signature moodiness was the lack of brightly colored flower displays in pivotal scenes. Brighten up any disposition with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of flower arrangements or fruit baskets at The Flower Place in New Castle.
The Flower Place has been assisting New Castle with its floral requests for more than three decades. Skilled blossom assemblers can adorn an array of occasions, from new baby congratulations and anniversaries to get-well arrangements and seasonal compositions. Bring Autumn to the table with the Harvest Time centerpiece ($39.95), exhibiting sunflowers, fall-tinged roses and chrysanthemums accented with natural wheat grass, or cheer up a birthday-less friend with Teleflora's Be Happy Bouquet ($39.95) complete with daisies and yellow roses in a smiley-faced Be Happy Mug. Resist the urge to devour beauteous buds and purchase the Delightful Fruit Tray ($49.95) instead. Posed deliciously on a round serving platter, this compilation includes apples, bananas, oranges, and a pineapple, forming the world's first fruit party that does not take place on the Chiquita banana lady's head.
In addition to blooms and sundries, specialty services at The Flower Place include a large inventory of fresh flowers, and funeral designs (both modern and time-honored displays). Delivery service (a $9 fee within the local delivery area) is prompt and affable, just like a furry cat alarm that comfortably purrs sleepers awake.
Four Google Mappers give The Flower Place an average of 3.5 stars:
