A science-themed art class where kids create baking soda volcanoes. A Spanish class that teaches children a new language through song. A cupcake-decorating class that shows how to customize desserts with hand-piped frosting. The team of instructors at Kidstarz International Academy of Creative Arts has been hosting fun, enriching classes like these for more than a decade. Youngsters can stretch the boundaries of their imaginations, explore their own creativity, and learn a wide array of skills in after-school sessions or day-long summer camps. Parents can also arrange birthday parties at the academy, where partygoers can work on an array of activities before singing "Happy Birthday" and carving a bust of the birthday child out of cake.
The thoroughly vetted staff members at Scrubs Pet Care all have more than 10 years of animal-care experience and have passed background and future checks to earn the title of pet caretaker. During sessions in the salon or in mobile grooming trailers, skilled groomers pamper dogs and cats, taking care to trim their nails, brush their teeth, and track down split ends with baths and haircuts. Cage-free overnight boarding and doggy daycare services keep dogs and cats in comfort while pet owners are at work, on vacation, or adding a jacuzzi to the doghouse.
The team at Raviolis weaves fresh ingredients into a tapestry of upscale Italian eats including specialty stuffed pastas and savory antipasti platters. The chef, Chef Jeff D. Massey, brings expert dedication to the kitchen, having mastered French fusion, modern Southern, and Italian cuisines. Raviolis furnishes a full catering menu for special occasions, and aspiring sous-chefs can garner the kitchen knowledge needed to feed their own parties with Raviolis’s seasonal cooking classes. Framed, vintage-style posters line the dining-room walls, and patrons clink glasses of boutique local wines over white tablecloths and enjoy regular events, such as prix fixe chef specialty meals. The flickering flames of tabletop candles waltz to the beat of live music and entertainment each Saturday night.
Attending a princess’ ball or fairy tea party can go from fantasy to birthday party reality with help from FairyTale Character Parties. Helmed by a group of ladies with an affinity for donning royal dresses and curtsying, the party service ventures to homes and outdoor areas equipped with a number of games, prizes, and goodie bags. Each party is led by a fairy-tale actress dressed as the birthday child’s favorite movie princess who excitedly hosts dance parties, nail-painting segments, and Q&A sessions discussing royalty and parliament governing procedures. FairyTale staff can also take full control of party needs by bringing their own decor and furniture, setting up and taking down all items, and cleaning up after the party guests.
Like fancy suits, sofa sets are sewn from the same cut of fabric. These matching sets provide a well-rounded look in living rooms, but near misses tend to clash due to their small differences. At 20 show rooms throughout the western US, Mor Furniture for Less arranges complete-room sets so customers can envision the collections in their own homes. Furniture for living rooms, dining rooms, and children's rooms can be found in each store along with individual lamps, tables, and entertainment centers. The stores also carry complete sets of beds, dressers, and nightstands so that homeowners don’t receive criticism from design bloggers in their dreams.
The staff members at IE Gourmet Food Trucks strives to populate Inland Empire's roads with sanitary food trucks that sell, buy, and hire locally. To do this, they give food trucks a secure parking space inside their hot-food-truck-approved commissary and inspect the vehicles to make sure they meet current health-code standards. They extend their helping hands to the chefs of the food trucks by offering them use of their commissary's prep kitchen and equipping them with amenities such as roadside assistance and unlimited ice for building snowman interns. In an effort to showcase the inspected food truck's eats, the staff members organize events throughout the year.
