Trees-R-Us stocks its four Orange County retail locations with festive evergreen varieties such as Douglas, Grand, and Nordmann Firs—an annual tradition since 1981. The outfit sources its specimens from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, a humane and happy home that lets the trees mature in dignity, build up their limb strength, and develop the willpower to not laugh when tickled by children. The company’s expert tree growers cut each batch as late in the season as possible before sending them out to each location, where they’re graded according to height and shape and then arranged for easy perusing.

Since 1973, the staff members at Reher’s Florist have put the lush flowers of Southern California to use in custom-designed arrangements for individuals and events. Because of the temperate climate and a countywide snowman ban, Reher’s considers no flower truly out of season. That means that arrangements can include orchids, cattails, and sunflowers year-round in arrangements suitable for celebrations, sympathy, and weddings.:m]]

Juicy tidbits of chocolate-dunked fruit arrive on the doorsteps of family and friends, done up in colorful bouquets and candy boxes by the skilled fruit arrangers at Edible Arrangements' more than 1,100 franchises worldwide. The company's in-house chocolatiers drizzle albion strawberries and daisy pineapples in a trio of chocolate flavors. Once properly chocolated, the workers organize the preservative-free sweets into lush arrangements that resemble flowers in bloom. Customers can choose to plop their bouquets in a variety of vessels, including vases, mugs, and sports- or holiday-themed containers that add a personal touch to the edible gifts. Alternatively, customers can opt to adorn gifts with the cheery, red lids of candy boxes, nestling 12 chocolate-dipped morsels inside to build anticipation and determine if loved ones have x-ray vision as they guess whether fruit will come dusted in shredded coconut or drizzled in white chocolate.
