Tom and Ryoko Nadeau founded Nadeau in 1991 with a goal of providing customers with quality home furniture and a wealth of product knowledge. The business quickly evolved into something larger: The duo now has 19 retail stores and a team of buyers who travel the world in search of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted pieces of solid-wood furniture. Nadeau has earned mentions from numerous media outlets—including the Washington Post, CBS Chicago, and Charleston Home magazine—for its unique selection, which includes a cache of more than 6,000 pieces ranging from rare side tables and chairs to dining sets. Pieces are never mass-produced, allowing customers to bring the flavor of different cultures into their homes or provide an adopted tree with a new friend.
Suspended from gossamer strands, white orchids hover like butterflies above rows of champagne glasses. Avant Garden's wedding arrangements such as these shatter notions of the traditional bouquet, forming eye-nabbing centerpieces instead. This attention to detail extends to the flower center's everyday arrangements, which florists tenderly assemble in glass vases and hand-painted jars. Additionally, staff members happily work with gift-givers to construct personalized arrangements. Once they’ve adjusted each petal to customers’ liking, florists also provide tips for care, such as how to make arrangements last longer and proper tackling techniques for catching bridal bouquets.

The Event Depot's team will do anything to take a party to the next level—they'll even build a snow-covered mountain in the host's backyard. Their snow services transform pockets of Miami into winter wonderlands, converting yards into snowy peaks for sledding or building full-fledged ice-skating arenas.
They also furnish parties with less frosty accessories. Kids frolic in bounce houses and inflatables, and waterslides and dunk tanks keep parties wet and wild. Hosts can even rent the company's indoor and outdoor party venues, saving them the hassle of post-party clean-up and dropping leftover balloon animals off at the pound.

And to the delight of their customers, much of Mattress Firm's bedding wears the label of a premium brand, such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons Beautyrest, or Stearns & Foster.

The Edible Arrangements geneticists have relinquished the chocolate-fruit hybridization task to a skilled team of dipping artists. These creative connoisseurs hand-dip fresh fruit in gourmet semi-sweet chocolate and then nestle each finished piece in its compact, boxy bed. Several $25 boxes are available, including choices from Edible Arrangements' mélange of fruit. Anjou pears, pineapples, strawberries, and other tempting treats are available under a darkened drizzle and can easily sate cravings without sacrificing allegiances to Mother Nature or Mother Nature's husband, Father Fragrance.
