Things that turn your frown upside down: puppies, rainbows, Chunky Monkey.
And, of course, flowers like those from Stems of Dallas.
Starting tomorrow, the budding custom floral company backed by two A&M grads will have a mini boutique inside new culinary retail and event space Duo.
The four-to-five options (with mod-meets-shabby-chic packaging) change monthly. For February, choose from the Petite Treat ($25) with three hot pink roses and a mahogany cymbidium in a frosted square vase and the Perfect Valentine ($50) with Juliet garden roses, a white hydrangea, and hot pink spray roses.
Drop by next Tuesday between 6 and 8 p.m. for free cocktails and the chance to preorder for Valentine’s Day. Delivery (starting February 11) is available within a fair radius for a small fee, and 10 percent of sales supports local charities.
That’s what we call the extra smile.
