Flowers express feelings often difficult to articulate in words, such as "I love you" and "Thank you for punctual toll-booth attendance." Dazzle the eyes and sniff sensors of favourite persons with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of fresh flower bouquets and arrangements at Violet Bloom's Fresh Flowers, located in Pickering.
Violet Bloom's large walk-in cooler stocks a meadow of fresh flowers from which in-house floral architects design modern and traditional seasonal arrangements. Roses include elegant long stems ($29.95/dozen) in passionate reds, appreciative pinks, and radioactive neon greens. Mixed bouquets ($19.95+) and vase arrangements ($29.95+) include the Faith Hill Breathless bouquet ($64.95), a contemporary spin on a classic romantic arrangement that stars lavender roses alongside white cymbidium orchids, lavender hydrangea, white lisianthus, and purple tulips, all plunked into a reflective silver vase. Erupt colour lava all over someone with the Make a Wish arrangement ($39.95), a sunny ensemble of yellow daisy spray chrysanthemums, purple matsumoto asters, hot-pink miniature carnations, orange carnations, alstroemeria, and bupleurum in a miniature ginger vase. Delivery can be arranged for an additional charge ($10+) to motor flora as far as Hamilton and Bowmanville.
