One can convey secret messages of love, friendship, and heartbreak through the symbolic colors and species in a flower bouquet. Send coded messages to fellow spies with an enigmatic mix of white daisies and pink roses in a cube vase ($32.95+), plus a small box of chocolates ($9.99+) to provide sustenance during a stakeout. Pair a dramatic yet simple arrangement of red tulips in a clear glass vase ($35) with three Mylar balloons ($14.99), or a pale pink glass vase with carnations, monte cassino, and lisianthus ($29.95+) with a medium stuffed animal ($19.99). Otherwise, use your Groupon to make an extravagant statement with a dozen red roses ($95) or an exotic arrangement of miniature bronze callas, with equisetum stalks styled in the vase ($234.95+) fit for an elegant spa.

Amicus Green Building Center brings an eco-friendly approach to the building process with its inventory of green and sustainable materials. Each product in the store undergoes extensive review to determine its potential energy savings, environmental integrity, and ability to intimidate smog that shows up unannounced to dinner parties.

Said shadows can be banished with the efficient lighting of compact fluorescent light bulbs ($5.19 each for small bulbs), which offer long life and warm light quality, or light-emitting diodes ($60.40 each for recessed bulbs) that pack an average 40,000 hours, or approximately 80,000 equally illuminating episodes of Frasier, of light.
