By day, staffers decant 70 premium teas at La Romanza Bistro Italiano's afternoon tea service, which pairs pours with venetian finger sandwiches and in-house baked goods topped with flourishes such as edible glitter. Lunches and weekend brunches last until nightfall, at which point the bistro transforms into an intimate eatery for cocktails and cuisine inspired by rustic Tuscany flavors. Chefs whip up abundant appetizers and salads, handmade pastas, and entrees accompanied by house-baked bread. Gluten-free options accompany each course.

To complement each bite, the staff pours house-crafted cocktails infused with specialty tea as well as wines by the glass, imported from Italy—a country that knows as much about wine as Einstein knew about having eccentric hair. To celebrate the weekend's arrival, local jazz pianist Loren Temkin and bassist Dune Buter entertain diners every Friday and Saturday night with their interpretations of classic compositions.

What once began as a gerontology master’s project soon became a time-saving solution for homeowners across the country. In 2000, Spectrum founder and physical therapist Jenny Nelson became alarmed by the number of senior citizens she met with injuries caused by doing work around their homes. While pursuing her degree in gerontology, she made it her master’s project to found a care company that assisted seniors living on their own with tasks that weren’t simply health related. Soon thereafter, Spectrum Home Services was born and became Nelson’s life’s work.

By 2008, when Hal and Jeanette Fairless opened the Pacific Northwest franchise, Spectrum had grown to serve everyone, regardless of age or presence of free cake in the home. Spectrum’s original focus is still seen in its handyman services, through which techs specialize in building wheelchair ramps, installing grab bars and lifts, and performing ADA bathroom modifications. Cleaning crews come out weekly, biweekly, monthly, or as needed to tidy up living spaces, and organization specialists help remove clutter from busy lives. For local moves or seniors transferring to an alternative living facility, Spectrum’s relocation team will plan the project from start to finish.

Luckily, customers can take advantage of the handy virtual decorator to narrow their choices and forecast what color schemes should be applied to which room, such as aquamarine themes for the exotic-fish room, bright primary colors for the inflatable fire escape, and a variety of yellows for a basement filled with antique butter churns.

When assembled correctly, a floral arrangement acts much like a poem. Each flower is a different verse, and together, the vibrant blooms convey messages of love, congratulations, or sympathy. The local florists at Finishing Touch Florist & Gifts make for excellent poets, each one fluent in a centriels-old floral vocabulary. Whenever a customer steps into their shop looking to celebrate an anniversary or a newborn child, the talented florists can deftly pullout a daisy, which represents innocence, a fern to express sincerity, or a rose, which of course conveys deep passion. The florists can arrange this last symbolic bloom into more than two dozen creations, with hues of red, pink, white, and other colors.

Once ready, these bouquets can add their fresh colors and scents to romantic evenings or perhaps even a wedding. However, sometimes the only reason to celebrate is a change in the seasons. Look to the shop's storefront window for a rotating lineup of flowers that herald the coming of spring, summer, winter, fall, and the secret fifth season only three people know about.
