Creating A Scene's owner, Alaina Walker, works with clients to enliven indoor and outdoor spaces with custom displays of silk and live plants. The company's consultants arrange foliage and flowers into elegant centerpieces for weddings or other special events, and they can even supply plant party favors that guests can take home with them or devour on the ride home. The retail showroom mimics that of any other florist shop, save for the sheer variety of its inventory, which includes unique specimens such as pineapple plants. The company's healthy-plant guarantee ensures the longevity of purchases, and its plant-maintenance service sees the crew making regular return trips to local businesses to fertilize, water, trim, and polish rented plants and replace any that have wilted. Creating A Scene also donates funds through its Pick A Plant program, which awards 30% of each eligible purchase to a nonprofit of the customer's choice.
Born out of co-founders Todd Giatrelis's and Sarah Towne's frustration at hunting for a sandal shop amid the glitz of the Vegas strip, Flip Flop Shops helps customers free their toes with a one-stop boutique for comfortable sandals and shoes, quickly expanding across the nation with more than 30 locations. Owner Jason Swinford proudly strides his size 12 sandaled feet across the floor of his Governor's Square Mall shop, uniting visitors with stylish strapped footwear and sneakers from brands such as Flojos, O'Neill, Quiksilver, and Vans. Every aspect of the store is cultivated to convey a laid-back, beachy atmosphere, with a scent of suntan oil gracing the air, lively music playing in the background, and a distinct taste of salt on every surface.

With dollops of warm wax, Brazils Waxing Center's licensed technicians deftly pull hairs from their follicles to create smooth, clean expanses of skin.

Steve’s seasoned band of overgrowth-abating mercenaries mows the grass, trims the weeds, edges, cleans the trimmings, and uncovers any pets and missing neighbors that have been wandering aimlessly through the impromptu jungle. Neglected suburban pastures are chopped down to a uniform crew cut, and any excess wreckage is promptly baled and removed from the premises. Steve's crew will also render the edges of lawns sharp enough to scratch pesky foot itches and whack any weeds they find by ambushing them at a tollbooth. By the time Steve's Lawn and Maintenance leaves, disheveled yards are once again ready to host neighborhood baseball games.
Using only clean, natural water from one of the oldest and deepest aquifers in the southeastern United States, Quality Water Supply delivers rental coolers and fresh water supplies direct to customers' homes. For one month, clients get a cooler, which dispenses frosty liquid refreshment and saves them the trouble of siphoning it from a neighbor's sprinkler. One shipment of four 5-gallon jugs full of calcium- and magnesium-rich water, harnessed from a remote rural alcove of Florida, can quench the thirst of an average household for the entire month.
