While red roses are the finest flowers for romancing, their petal flavor and thorns evoke notes of oak and betrayal. Bestow a more amorous mouthfeel with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fresh fruit bouquets at Tutti Frutti, located in Virginia Beach.
Tutti Frutti's repertoire of fruit bouquets repurposes delicious seed bearers into swoon-worthy sculptural arrangements. Pineapple and cantaloupe slices reformed into floral shapes arrive in a unique vessel that can be reused for saving change or for housing actual flowers ($39.99). The Delightfull Garden heralds the dawn of spring with melon and pineapple pieces alongside chocolate-ensconced apple and strawberries ($49). Belgian-chocolate-dipped strawberries in a box ($19) or an artichoke-inspired bloom ($39) can pacify distressed babies or babyish roommates. Mark all stripes of celebration from birthdays and sunny days to Pi Day with a granny-smith apple that has been drowned in creamy caramel before being lathered in gourmet white chocolate ($9.99). Call ahead or visit the website to order a bouquet.
