incredible edibles

Does anyone know of an outfit that does flower baskets/ bouquets out of fruits in Montreal or Laval?
I'm in Florida and would like to send something of the sort to my parents for Valentine's day
but can't seem to find anything like what I have access to here.
Or anything food/fruit related ideas would be appreciated

    1. there is this wonderful company call Basketfull of treasures. 514-595-7618.
      Try to speak with Connie or Robert. We always use them at our hotel for the guest, they do amazing stuff.

        Thanks, I'll check them out.
        No website?

      2. Another idea: Once I sent my parents a restaurant outing present (I'm in Montreal and they were in Calgary). I phoned a restaurant they liked in Calgary and asked that they charge my credit card for two full meals including beverages, dessert, coffee and tip. I explained I would send my parents. Anyway, it worked well, my parents loved it - I simply phoned them to tell them they had a reservation on a certain day & that everything was paid for. Just sharing in case you may wish to do something similar.

          thanks for suggestions. My parents are in their 80's and driving at night is not one of their favorite thing. They live outside of Montreal and Valentine's day in restaurants is always too busy for them.
          I just can't believe that there isn't a company like incredible edibles in Montreal
          Definitely something to think about for the entrepreneurial ones out there.I know that do a booming business here

        2. There's this place on St. Denis called Edible Arrangements that makes yummy looking fruit creations. I have not sampled them so I can't really recommend them, but I've always been intrigued, and thought you might be interested.

          p.s. They're also in Kirkland and in Westmount, according the the website.

            Edible Arrangements are a well established franchise that have fairly recently opened in the Montreal-area. I was aware of the Kirkland & Westmount locations, both run the same husband & wife team. I assume the St-Denis location are also run by them.

              Just letting you know that they deliverd today and it was absolutely beautiful and delicious.
              At least this is a gift that does not go to waste ( but to waist)
              Thakns again your help made the day!

              Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for
              Got to love the Chowhound!!!!!!

            3. If it is not too late, try Epicerie Latina in Mile End

              They have creative, if slightly pricey gift baskets.
