Supplying all types of social gatherings with entertainment-enhancing games and activities, Springfield Party Rental stocks a sprightly set of family-friendly bouncy houses, big-shot-belittling dunk tanks, or six-person laser-tag sets. Though this deal is valid for the standard bouncer, rocketing ricocheters can upgrade to a themed castle, such as Bob the Builder or the Clown Bouncer (an additional $25), or land a bounce-and-slide combo to really rile up guests at your city-council-overthrow fundraiser (an additional $100). Party planners can take the initiative to pick up, set up, and take down their own rentals (the job requires two adults, and is easy with three), and the dunk tank is towable with a 2" hitch. However, professional delivery and pick-up are also available at a flat rate of $60 within 10 miles, and $3 per loaded mile after that—similarly, setup and takedown are an additional fee.
Mostly Memories Candle Co produces some of the highest quality scented candles in the marketplace. All of our candles are highly fragranced from top to bottom for long lasting scent and burn. We use a premium environmentally friendly soy blend wax, 100% cotton wicks, and 100% organic crackling wood wicks.
Creative customization is key at Yogurtini, where a rotating cast of frozen-yogurt flavors meets a large list of toppings to create personalized self-serve desserts. Each day, frozen-yogurt flavors such as classic tart, cookies and cream, and red velvet are culled from a sprawling list and presented for customer consumption, with vegan and gluten-free options available. After customers fill their chalices or shirt pockets with yogurt, they can amble over to the topping bar, which showcases more than 65 choices including popular candies, cookies, and fruits. Once their dessert is complete, customers can relax in one of several sea-foam-green chairs or transfer their treat into a vacuum-insulated, stainless-steel to-go container.
At Doennig Sport Swings and Ozark Paintball, the theme is "go big." This slogan is apt, since kids and parents sway and soar atop mammoth Sport Swings and navigate giant obstacle courses. In between, they race each other in a bungee run or hop into large inflatable bounce houses to joust and box with oversized gloves before boarding a bus shaped like a log cabin called the "Hillmobilly" for a one-of-a-kind hayride. Also blanketing the park is a paintball field filled with wood-slat bridges, timber watchtowers, tunnels, trenches and plenty of thick brush to camouflage players. After a day's worth of colossal attractions, groups can wind down around camp-like bonfires with hot dogs, s'mores, and other scorchable treats in hand.
To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, “She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.”
Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand’s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.
