Pearl Announces New Tenant to Open in November
Pearl announces new tenant, The Vintage Bouquet Bar, a flower and gift boutique that consists of full service floral customization where customers can select their florals, fillers, greenery, and arrangement style for a completely unique and personalized piece. Created by locally based and innovative flower farmers of Vintage Heart Farm, The Vintage Bouquet Bar will open at the Pearl in November 2017.
“It’s incredibly exciting to have the opportunity to bring to fruition something I feel so passionate about, especially in a place of such integrity and foresight,” said Ashley Mauricio-Flores, owner and creative director for The Vintage Bouquet Bar. “Pearl has always felt like the perfect place for our little business to grow because we really believe in their vision of supporting local and building on that sense of community.”
The Vintage Bouquet Bar’s trained “floristas” will assist customers in hand selecting florals and will then create the bouquet or arrangement. The store will focus on seasonal floral varieties that are grown just 40 minutes away at Vintage Heart Farm or sourced from other local and U.S.-based flower farms. The Vintage Bouquet Bar will also feature the “succulent mini-bar”, where customers can customize living succulent jewelry pieces, such as rings, cuffs, statement necklaces, and succulent halos. Each piece will be set with a beautiful array of mini succulent plants.
“We are thrilled to be adding The Vintage Bouquet Bar to our Pearl family,” said Elizabeth Fauerso, chief marketing officer for the Pearl. “Vintage Heart Farm has been a vendor at our Pearl Farmers Market for the last two years, and we are looking forward to having them in a more permanent retail space with us. We also love that The Vintage Bouquet Bar is part of the growing farmer-florist movement, where florists use their own farm grown flowers for their creations.”
The Vintage Bouquet Bar will also feature an informal creative workspace where it will offer one of a kind floral design classes. Each class will showcase the hands-on creation of a unique floral piece, which will vary in style, color, and seasonality per class. In addition, the store will carry a curated collection of specialty hand selected gift products to parallel the floral offerings, as well as offer a wedding florals department where it will specialize in seasonal garden-inspired florals. Services will include everything from concept and design to application and installation for the wedding.
The Vintage Bouquet Bar will be located at the Pearl at 303 Pearl Parkway, Suite 104, San Antonio, TX 78215, in the space formerly occupied by Melissa Guerra: Latin Kitchen Market. Official opening date and hours of the store to come. For more information on Vintage Bouquet Bar, please visit www.thevintagebouquetbar.com.
