Since 1950, from within a whitewashed colonial-style house, Frances Flower Shop’s family of floral artists has arranged ornate bouquets and baskets for any holiday and occasion. Flourishing from a wicker basket trimmed with a velvet ribbon, a poinsettia blossoms with red petals flanked by thriving green leaves—two colors that legitimize the plant’s Noel fame and represent Santa’s favorite M&M flavors. Alternatively, wintertime doors can receive a burst of winter cheer with a traditional holiday wreath constructed from noble fir and juniper branches and speckled with pinecones and red berries. Florists can also adorn wreaths with an oversize red, velvet bow for an extra holiday kick, much like a mule dressed up as a reindeer.
The innovative design team at Closet Factory collaborates with customers' personal spaces and needs to sculpt artful storage solutions for closets, garages, pantries, and offices. During each complementary in-home consultation, designers spend 60–90 minutes exploring wardrobe-dominated spaces with homeowners while offering suggestions, noting individual concerns, and avoiding the gaze of territorial sweaters. After designers and customers decide on an ideal solution, Closet Factory's craftsmen cut and assemble each custom piece in a local workshop to ensure a clean and efficient installation process. As with all custom work, the cost of each storage solution will vary depending on materials, labor, and preference for monogrammed closet doors.
Bath Junkie’s Little Rock branch welcomes crafty visitors who aim to create their own customized bath products without welding together bathtubs or sewing shower curtains into tuxedo capes. Amid a vibrant and colorful atmosphere, the helpful staff assists customers in selecting nontinted and unscented products such as salt scrubs, bath crystals, lotions, body washes, shampoos, conditioners, oils, perfumes, and magical elf ointments that instill tree-talking abilities. After selecting the perfect product, about 200 scents await your approval. A final tint application transforms skin-soothing concoctions into aesthetically striking bathroom accessories. Surprise your mom with a hydrating body mist ($18.50, 4 oz.) that matches her bedroom décor or pick up any lotion product ($10.25+). Add pizzazz to bath time with fragrant bath crystals ($25, 32 oz.) and an exfoliating salt scrub ($35.50, 16 oz.). The fun, hands-on process provides all the child-like excitement of spontaneous soda-fountain chemistry while avoiding sugar-induced headaches and upset stomachs. Every product is suitable for sensitive skin and almost all are paraben- and SLS-free.
