In more than 1,112 stores worldwide, Edible Arrangements' staff¬¬––known as fruit experts––arrange pieces of premium fruit in stunning bouquets for all occasions. The experts customize their patrons' orders to suit any event, dipping fruits into semisweet or white chocolate to complete the arrangement. They select their chocolate-coated morsels from a range of fruits such as pineapples, granny smith apples, and juicy strawberries that—unlike fruit products sold by mummies—don't contain any preservatives. For birthdays and anniversaries, they personalize bouquets with gifts such as plush teddy bears and mylar balloons.

Or, encourage the sweep stuck in your chimney with a Make a Wish package of yellow daisy chrysanthemums, purple asters, and hot pink carnations ($39.95).

Rebecca’s Flowers’ team of blossom artists concocts elaborate and unique bouquets for every occasion and season. A white woven basket houses a winter poinsettia plant, which flaunts eye-grabbing red petals intermingled with green leaves that were hand-photosynthesized by Santa's elves. Alternatively, customers can peruse Rebecca’s boundless selection of plants, balloons, and flowers, including an apple-martini bouquet ($49.99), green carnations and poms flourishing from the bottom of an emerald-hued martini glass. The Heartfelt Celebrations ($49.99) arrangement festoons a square, snowflake-embellished vase with a hodgepodge of fresh-cut flowers, including roses and carnations, and fragrant pieces, such as pinecones and tree-shaped air fresheners.
At TG Farms Pumpkin Patch, autumn’s shifting breezes not only herald a fresh crop of gourds, but also the start of the farm’s annual festivities. From morning until nightfall, families traipse through the patch in search of a pumpkin that will transform into their dream jack-o’-lantern or a car for their children to take to college, and navigate the twists and turns of a massive corn maze. On a calm pond, ducks await generous handfuls of feed, and a petting zoo lets wee ones commune with calves and goats. Back under a roof, the gift shop hosts decorative gourds, straw bales, and other fall decor.
Although autumn is the season when activity reaches a fever pitch, TG Farms is open to outdoor enthusiasts year-round. In spring, visitors learn how crops grow in the fields and flowers bloom in greenhouses. When the sun strengthens into summer, farmers peddle homegrown tomatoes and juicy watermelon. And in winter, when the last leaves have frozen over, families can pick out a fresh-cut Christmas tree or collect a jar of fresh snowman tears.
