Bejeweled with gem-like skewered grapes, the Delicious Fruit Design bouquet pops with a starburst of chocolate-drenched and undrenched strawberries rocketing past honeydew slices. Skillfully shaped cantaloupe daisies sport glistening pineapple petals, communicating love to significant others or appreciation to favorite limbo dancers. Alternatively, woo eyes and tongues with chocolate-drenched apple wedges, handsomely arranged in a gift-ready box. A dozen ripe strawberries hand-dipped in semisweet chocolate peek out of their package, tempting onlookers with finger-staining juiciness. Whether drizzled in chocolate or served au naturel, each bite remains free of preservatives and lower-back tattoos.

Amicus Green Building Center brings an eco-friendly approach to the building process with its inventory of green and sustainable materials. Each product in the store undergoes extensive review to determine its potential energy savings, environmental integrity, and ability to intimidate smog that shows up unannounced to dinner parties.

Said shadows can be banished with the efficient lighting of compact fluorescent light bulbs ($5.19 each for small bulbs), which offer long life and warm light quality, or light-emitting diodes ($60.40 each for recessed bulbs) that pack an average 40,000 hours, or approximately 80,000 equally illuminating episodes of Frasier, of light.

A mid-May peony harvest ($4 each) peppers chlorophyll-based arrangements with the kaleidoscopic buds, and potted rosemary ($3.75/4" pot) and basil ($2.75/3" pot) add a professional touch to home cooking without the hair-flattening effects of a chef's toque.
