At Your Plate or Mine, both seasoned glazers and greenhorn glammers turn unadorned pottery and glass fragments into one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Pottery prettifiers of all ages choose from more than 500 pieces of bisque ($4–$55), ranging from plates ($8–$12) and mugs ($8–$12) to figurines ($9–$12). With their blank slates in tow, guests pick out paints and, like the Beauty and the Beast animation team, bring the ceramics to life; if painter's block sets in, a friendly staff can offer tips and suggestions.
White Lake Greenhouses Floral has been translating complex sentiments into table-decorating arrangements for more than 100 years. Celebrate an heir to carry on the family foosball legacy with the Welcome Baby Boy arrangement ($45+), highlighted by green jade roses, blue iris, and white gerberas, or practice tango maneuvers to the mailbox with single-cut flowers ($1+). A basket-bound benjamin fig tree ($35+) gracefully adorns countertops, and a balloon bouquet ($20) cheers up loved ones and sparks the envy of gravity-enslaved bouncy balls.
At Continuity, people can sift through a collection of home-décor items, jewelry, knickknacks, furniture, and repurposed goods that radiate nostalgic, vintage, and antique charm. A white oval mirror ($25) adds elegance to bare walls with its gracefully intertwined lace-like frame. Dress up a dull salad for a zippy ride on any of five antique car plates ($20 for the set), or procure a twig bird sculpture ($10), which makes for an apropos perch for any pet cockatiel or flightless cornhusk doll looking for company. Bare décolletages can be embellished with a vintage mother-of-pearl necklace featuring gleaming silver rimmed around an opalescent circular pendant ($20).

The official theater of Grand Valley State University takes drama seriously. With a small student-to-faculty ratio and instructors who necessitate hands-on experience, the learning troupe produces plays that range from Urinetown: The Musical to Shakespearean tragedies. And the company's love for theatre in all its forms spills beyond the stage, too, with the Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival every fall celebrating Shakespearean values such as maintaining professionalism and a waxed goatee. The results of this immersion speak for themselves: alumni have gone on to work at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, stage manage MGM Grand in Las Vegas, appear in a BMW commercial, and write a book about improvising.
