     10GreatFlorida Spas
     All work and no spa can make for a dreary corporate retreat—especially if your group has significant others along.
     When business is done and it’s time to relax—or the significant others are looking for a way to pass the time—try incorporating.
     Add spa treatments into the schedule of activities and your group will return to the office refreshed and ready to face the
     challenges ahead. In many cases, resorts have an excellent spa on-property or nearby. Here are some of Florida’s best.

     Dazzling Decor, Design,
     and Floral Companies
     Elaborate floral centerpieces. Whimsical archways made of balloons. Cozy furniture. Over-the-top props
     and scenery. Events wouldn’t be the same without them. No matter how simple or elaborate things need
     to be, these companies can meet any decorative demand or fill any floral request.
