What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Reviews||Rafflesia Arnoldii vs Regular Flowers_|
Come home to the perfume of fresh and elegant flowers or express your love to a loved one with three bouquets instead of one. Today’s Groupon offers three consecutive monthly home deliveries of high-quality floral arrangements from Twig, Boston’s premier florist. For $85—just under the cost of one home-delivered arrangement—you get three deliveries to anywhere in the Boston metropolitan area (a $258 value).
Each delivery includes a beautiful “bouquet of the month.” Get the option of being surprised every month, or call a Twig representative before the deliveries start to provide flower color and species preferences to inform the customization of your bouquets. Please note that customers don’t place specific custom orders, but just give preferences to guide Twig’s custom bouquet creations—you’ll still be getting a unique surprise each month. To get an idea of the kind of bouquets that might be included, browse the bouquets in the $75 price range (the ones with the prices in purple) on Twig’s menu.
Just schedule your deliveries with Twig—once a month for three consecutive months—stand back, and watch the flower delivery begin. A well-executed flower delivery is almost as beautiful as a well-designed flower. Redeem up to four Groupons and get flowers delivered for 12 consecutive months—that’s a year’s worth of all the benefits one gets from gifting flowers (muffins, diplomatic immunity from romantic blunders, etc.)
Flowers can create a sense of purposeful decor in the most cookie-cutter of apartments and can take a well-designed nest to a new sensory level. Think about it: sometime soon you’re likely to have a flower-worthy event, be it an anniversary, Sweetest Day (October 17), or apologizing for wetting the bed. Be prepared—get your Groupon.
Twig has received awards from Boston magazine four years in a row, and Yelpers give the South End location 4.5 stars (contrary to the statement on Yelp, this location is not closed). The Dartmouth St. location only has two ratings so far with a 3.5 average. > * Totally unpretentious and somehow still severely hip, the great selection, fabulous staff… – erica c. > * I love this floral shop! ….The bouquet was beautiful and really fresh! Most of the flowers were still beautiful when we went back to our friends house almost a week later. – Lauren W. > * Visit Twig’s luscious store for a wide selection of beautiful flowers - mix your own bouquet, or ask the store’s gurus, Lou or Ryan, for help in assembling a creation to meet any need and budget. – Jessica F.
Rafflesia Arnoldii vs Regular Flowers
The world’s rarest flower, the Rafflesia arnoldii, has appeared only once in North America: in Chicagoan Gary Stewart’s studio apartment. Stewart found the meter-wide flower on a spring break trip to Borneo and promptly illegally removed the so-called “corpse flower,” which stinks of rotting flesh.
The flower blooms for only a few days each year, and only in its natural habitat. Stewart has vainly attempted many strategies to get the flower to bloom:
- Incessantly playing the film The Sixth Sense, hoping it will bloom in time to catch the film’s startling twist ending.
- Placing air fresheners in the corpse flower’s tender center.
- Reuniting the corpse flower’s favorite band, Extreme, for a live, acoustic performance of “More Than Words” in the living room.
- Started a savings account in the corpse flower’s name.
Since it’s impossible to get the corpse flower to bloom in your North American home, try today’s Groupon to have non-stinking flowers delivered right to your door.

When Lou Whitney founded Twig, he wanted to offer a level of flower quality that he felt other shops lacked. Having been named one of the Best Flower Shops in Boston by CBS Boston, Twig seems to have done exactly that.
Whether the shop’s florists are artfully arranging tulips and hydrangeas into bouquets for the seasonal collection or creating custom arrangements to suit any event, they use the freshest blooms available. The selection of in-store gifts helps buyers accompany their bouquets with goods from Michael Aram, Juliska, and other quality brands. On-staff installation professionals can also create indoor and outdoor garden installations, which last longer than hiring a skywriter to draw flowers in the air.
Twig's staffers also share their passion for flowers with customers through themed floral-design workshops.
