The florists at Bel Aire Flowers have been assembling visual and olfactory works of art since 1964, arranging vibrant and elegant pieces for any number of special occasions. Much like the curators of the Smithsonian, they restock their selection daily, bringing tropical flowers in from Hilo, Hawaii, and buying blooming plants from local growers. As professional FTD florists, they also prepare exclusive and branded arrangements, delivering their bouquets throughout Milwaukee as well as Waukesha and Lake Counties. In addition to blooms, the florist also lines Bel Aire's shelves with gifts and keepsakes, including teddy bears, balloons, and candies.
In 1958, Guy Day and Dale Williams founded their mattress store with a focus on high-quality products and excellent customer service. After 10 years, the partners unveiled their line of handcrafted, personalized mattress sets under the name Verlo, a combination of their wives' names—Verna and Lois. After more than 40 years, the company has perfected its craft, manufacturing customized mattresses and selling them directly through their show rooms. The stock ranges from plush pillowtops to firm sets, both capable of supporting healthy sleeping patterns and cutthroat pillow fights for years to come.
Whether someone wants a custom T-shirt, calendar, or iPhone case, Zazzle helps them get it. The online site helps customers express their personalities through original creations. Customers first select a template, such as a blank mug or even a skateboard, and then add their own designs. They can then choose to upload photos to items; for example, invitations to a child's 9th birthday party can sport pictures of that child's 8th birthday wish not coming true. Zazzle is also a hub where artists can sell their designs for customers to use on blank templates.
The staff at Monkey Business Party & Gifts keep their shelves stocked with colorful party supplies and favors such as stick-on moustaches, bacon band-aids, and super balls. They carry themed supplies for birthdays, graduations, and holidays.
For more than four decades, the event facilitators at Brookfield Party Rental have shouldered the burden of party planning by supplying all of the accouterments for bashes, from tents and canopies fit for weddings or cookouts to cotton-candy machines. Picnic guests can bask in the summer sun at rentable banquet tables, while kids test gravity in colorful castle or obstacle-course bounce houses. The party supplier also dishes out charcoal and propane grills, stylish bars, dance floors, and 55-inch Vizio flat-screen TVs that distract guests with sporting events and movies while hosts steal the pennies out of their loafers.
