A beginner's mosaic tiling class ($55 plus $20 for materials) teaches creatives of all levels of skill and glee in smashing tiles to compose one-of-a-kind picture frames, trays, and stepping stones. Or delve into the dirt with a class on growing edible flowers and greens ($10 plus $5 for materials). Attendees can sip fresh coffee or cool lemonade.
Juicy tidbits of chocolate-dunked fruit arrive on the doorsteps of family and friends, done up in colorful bouquets and candy boxes by the skilled fruit arrangers at Edible Arrangements' more than 1,100 franchises worldwide. The company's in-house chocolatiers drizzle albion strawberries and daisy pineapples in a trio of chocolate flavors. Once properly chocolated, the workers organize the preservative-free sweets into lush arrangements that resemble flowers in bloom. Customers can choose to plop their bouquets in a variety of vessels, including vases, mugs, and sports- or holiday-themed containers that add a personal touch to the edible gifts. Alternatively, customers can opt to adorn gifts with the cheery, red lids of candy boxes, nestling 12 chocolate-dipped morsels inside to build anticipation and determine if loved ones have x-ray vision as they guess whether fruit will come dusted in shredded coconut or drizzled in white chocolate.

Thai yoga therapy is an ancient system of healing rooted in the traditions of yoga, Ayurvedic medicine, and Buddhist spiritual practices. This method incorporates a series of facilitated stretches that leave bodies balanced, more mobile, and flexible enough to fit five days of meetings into a four-day workweek. This holistic approach to healing is the source from which all of Suphattra?s relaxing treatments spring forth. These services include both Eastern and Western massage therapies, detox treatments, facials, and waxing services. The pamperings take place within the comfort of private treatment rooms decorated with elaborate, exotic Asian decor, where dim lighting casts a warm glow over flowers, flickering candles, and satiny pillows.
