Some of Donn F. Flipse's earliest memories are of him wielding a broom, sweeping up the fallen petals and snipped-off stamen that have gathered around the feet of the floral designers at his family's flower shop. Eight-year-old Donn eventually moved up in rank, escorting arrangements to their destinations in the delivery truck as soon as he got his license. When he graduated college, he almost turned his back on the flower business his father and his grandfather built, but after mentoring under one of the shop's floral designers, he realized, “It was in [his] blood.” In 1990, he opened Field of Flowers in Davie.
The rose, he says, continues to be the most popular flower, although different breeds take the crown every so often—the current favorite is the garden rose, a throwback blossom like what might flourish in a well-tended backyard. Donn's favorites are the rose-like lisanthius and the Canterbury bells, which look delicate but are sturdy and long lasting, much like a quarterback who takes ballet classes.
Field of Flower's team of designers compose striking arrangements using popular flowers as well as rare blooms such as orchids or birds of paradise. The team also crafts design pieces for celebrations, with past creations including a french poodle sculpted from flowers and a Spongebob Squarepants–themed arrangements in which blue gel simulated the ocean, submerging plants in an under-the-sea wonderland.

Half Price Mattress eases the investment of a new bed by pricing mattresses at 50%–70% below retail value. Though low in cost, each factory-authorized mattress comes from a reputable brand such as Serta, Tempur-Pedic, or Sealy. The showroom holds innovations to suit a wide variety of sleep styles: Simmons high-tech beds combine titanium lumbar support with temperature-regulating memory foam that keeps sleepers cooler than a dream career as an ice sculptor, whereas Spring Air’s mattresses wrap eco-wood and low-disturbance springs with a bamboo cover.
At Laser Therapy Spa, technicians and aestheticians enroll in ongoing education classes to make sure their services stay on the cutting edge. The dual-focus spa encompasses two main branches. One centers around laser treatments performed with Harmony XL or Accent XL lasers, which can be calibrated to minimize unwanted hair or skin blemishes or to tighten lax skin on the face or body. The other side of the center focuses on traditional spa services, including massages and facials administered with Obagi and SkinMedica products. The spa even has a hyberbaric oxygen chamber, which clients can hop into during immune-boosting oxygen-therapy treatments or during a game of hide-and-seek with the office staff.
Martin Joo and David Clarke have been fighters for a long time, and also have years of experience in mixed martial arts and fitness training. They decided to take their skills outside the cage by training other fighters to have the skill, fitness, and courage to follow in their footsteps. So they founded Omni Combat Fitness, where classes focus on a broad range of fighting styles as well as fitness techniques. Trainers might combine boxing and jiujitsu in a single class, or move from a plyometric workout to sparring in the ring to teaching the proper technique for launching tomatoes in a food fight.
