Since 1982, Town & Country Flowers & Gifts has been filling vases with fragrant bursts of color and making gift-giving easy with treats and home accessories. Bouquets such as the vibrant, multihued Make a Wish translate cheery statements into botanical displays, which can be picked up at the boutique, sent directly to recipients, or delivered to a variety of local hospitals and funeral homes. The shop stocks more than just flowers—morsels by South Bend Chocolate Company melt atop tongues, Village Candles accent homes with flickering flames, and Russ teddy bears offer an alternative to genuine grizzlies, whose wrapping-paper phobia makes them an impractical present.
Crestwoods Frame Shop and Gallery protects clients' cherished paintings and possessions and displays work from celebrated local and regional artists. The studio boasts more than 2,500 types of frames, paired with acid-free archival materials and UV glass to reduce fading. The staff also restores old photographs and provides crisp, professional digital printing services.
John and Belle Hufferd, owners and head trainers at Triumph Stables, are experts in producing world-champion horses in a wide range of divisions and training riders of all abilities. The pair specializes in Morgan and Saddlebred horses, exhibiting mastery over such disciplines as park harness and pleasure driving, among others. As horses are only as good as the riders guiding them, human students learn proper technique for horse care, including vocal and non-vocal commands in the saddle as well as inspecting haystacks for needles before letting a horse eat.
Aesthetic Plant Specialists nurtures 38,000 square feet of leafy pets that help to enliven homes and office buildings throughout the year using adapted traditional and modern growing techniques. Poinsettias flourish inside the spacious greenhouse, and will often reach heights of up to 36 inches with proper care and a constant stream of soothing kazoo lullabies. Light watering is required to keep soil as moist as Santa's tears do in the poinsettia's natural habitat, and an ideal temperature between 68 and 70 degrees is required to help plants stay healthy. Poinsettias will thrive for several months after the holiday season, helping to improve indoor air quality and camouflaging pet tomatoes during games of hide-and-seek.
