They also offer market-style bouquets and bulk flowers for guests interested in creating their own floral designs. As an edible treat or thoughtful gift, staffers can recommend gourmet baskets or Build-A-Bear-Workshop teddy bears that convey messages such as "Happy Birthday," "Cheer Up," or "I'm Sorry I Called Your Goldfish 'Ugly.'"

Faust Natural Shades shields interior spaces from the sun's intrusion with shades woven from natural materials in a variety of styles. Pricing varies widely based on dimensions, styles, and other options, starting at $125 for a 36"x24" Coba shade and ranging up to $4,976 with additional charges for certain added features. Consult the brochure for pricing charts, listings of available options, and pleasantly dim photos. The light-lessening process begins with an in-home appointment to take measurements, choose options, place the order, and apply a temporary coating of sunblock to floors, furniture, and pets. Each of the more than 60 patterns is custom-woven entirely from natural rattan, grass, bamboo, or leather. The photon-punters are hoisted by a number of different shade mechanisms, including Roman, roller, and motorized styles. Once completed, your custom shades are installed for free, saving you from the machinations of untrustworthy ladders and treacherous chairs.
Nestled in the frondescence of a quaint pecan grove, Oma Gruene's Secret Garten welcomes diners to enjoy savory sandwiches and German specialties and absorb a festive garden ambience. Dining duos will kick-start meals with chips and salsa (a $4 value), a heaping pile of corn chips adorned with a spicy homemade salsa. Next, entrees can be chosen from a straightforward menu stocked with local ingredients, such as sausage from a neighborhood smokehouse showcased on the bratwurst plate (a $7.95 value) or in a kraut dog (a $6.95 value). Culinary architects erect turkey-and-swiss sandwiches (a $6.95 value) atop foundations of marble-rye bread, and a Reuben (a $6.95 value) demonstrates the dexterity of corned beef by getting served warm, cold, or mid-handspring. Sweet-teethed twosomes can finish feasts with palatable scoops of Blue Bell ice cream, and then wash down bites with a sweet soda deluge before using empty cups as maracas during impromptu limbo challenges.
