My Little Flower Shop's owner, Gregory Goodman, draws on 35 years of botanical bouquet crafting to assemble fresh blossoms in classic, modern, or quirky arrangements. The rustic Fall Daisy basket ($34.99–$44.99) bursts with hand-designed yellow and bronze daisies like a vegetarian piñata. Celebrate harvest time with fall arrangements such as the Amber Waves bouquet, an amber-glass hurricane vase that drenches eyeballs with roses, lilies, solidasters, and yarrow with dried-wheat accents ($49.99), or the orange-and-yellow Harvest Moon Mugable, a reusable mug filled to overflowing with daisy poms ($29.99). Customers can opt for a whimsical Cupcake in Bloom arrangement complete with wax candle or a Birthday Mosaic bouquet ($54.99) to celebrate the birth of friends and family members while sending a grizzly reminder of mortality's fleetingness to disobedient houseplants.

For decades, American Bartenders School has helped aspiring spirit spreaders to develop steady hands, sure eyes for measurement, and an encyclopedic drink-formula knowledge. All of the school's classes cover basic mixing, garnishing, layering, and glassware selection in a realistic bar setting, complete with animatronic bar regulars debating whether Woody Allen is currently the president of Azerbaijan. Students gain access to a book of recipes for shooters, including cosmos, lemon drops, and jelly beans; learn how to make frozen specialties and hot toddies; and discover how to cure hangovers and hiccups. For the 12-hour bartending-certification course, graduation sessions are held where the instructors offer helpful tips on how to get hired as a bartender, before returning home with a mixology certificate, professional resumé, and the ability to set up and stock their own home bars, all of which make a classy addition to living rooms, lounges, and butler traps.
