Rice's Nursery has been sprucing up area gardens with expert intervention since 1941, often by giving them a whimsical personality by adding a whimsical fairy garden, complete with tiny props and plants perfectly sized for imaginary flying friends. Rice Nursery's collection of fairy gardening products includes miniature shrubbery and flowering plants, itty-bitty statues of fairies ($14.99), houses, furniture ($5.49-$29.99), and accessories like holiday wreaths ($1.99-$2.99) and watering cans ($1.79). Rice's garden center centers on model gardens that give would-be fairy gardeners a chance to scope clever set-up ideas.

Nestled in a turn-of-the-century Dutch-colonial home, Flowers in the Attic combines a flower shop, a daytime caf?, and a gift shop under one roof, creating a charming and eclectic experience that was once profiled in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The gift shop's floral arrangements, antiques, and trinkets from brands such as WoodWick Candles and Sid Dickens make for special multi-occasion tidings and fun perusal as guests explore the house. In the caf?, servers bring to tables brunches replete with eggs and waffles and lunches of sandwiches and salads that overflow with greens and chopped fruit. On balmy days, a wraparound front porch seasons fare with fresh air that flows in through crisp white balustrades and pillars. Special teatime events at the house include spreads of sandwiches, pastries, and pots of tea to share among adults or little ones. Flowers in the Attic is also a unique space to have a special event, ranging from bridal showers to bar mitzvahs.
The Gidas family has owned and operated its flower shop for more than 90 years and four generations. It's safe to say they know flowers: how to arrange them, how to keep them fresh, which blossoms are best for a given occasion, and the specific bud that contains a long-suffering fairy with no magical abilities of which to speak. The shop provides daily arrangements and deliveries to Pittsburgh and its surrounding suburbs. For $40, buy a loved one a glass bowl of multi-colored roses, a spray of pink, yellow, and peach blooms that symbolize gratitude, friendship, and affection. For $45, get a zen arrangement of purple dendrobium orchids sure to calm even the most throb-veined of screaming military generals. A variety of fruit baskets are also available ($35–$100), supplying customers so many bananas, chocolates, and tea-cakes that the intended recipient will forego celebrating his or her birthday to sit in a dark closet and relentlessly snack.
