Having enjoyed more than a year of success in service to Marco Island and Naples, Bella Florals by Theresa unveiled a new storefront located at 9 Front Street, Marco Island. The retail location will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19. Bella Florals is accepting orders for one-of-a-kind floral design and gift baskets.
Since relocating from Wilmington, N.C. in April 2015, Bella Florals by Theresa has vastly outgrown owner Theresa Chambers’ previous location. The new storefront houses an art studio for community activities, a regular schedule of workshops and the opportunity for the public to witness the creation of stunning, diverse floral arrangements. Private floral design classes will be offered by appointment for fun and entertainment with friends, family and guests.
Chambers is joined by European-trained Djenana Ninkovic, who brings an eclectic flair to floral design that is rarely seen in America. In 2004, the two met while working as head designers in an exclusive floral design studio in N.C. Their personal chemistry and shared dedication to their craft led Ninkovic to join Chambers at Bella Florals, where many of the flowers were grown on site with a focus on sustainability. The new Front Street location offers a garden ready for the pair to “grow local” and further enhance the charm of beautiful Marco Island.
The designers will continue to provide private, in-home consultations for cut flower and silk designs for house parties, weddings and other celebrations – or simply for the love of the beauty, color and fragrance of fresh flowers. Bella Florals serves clients with floral designs or gift baskets containing seasonal, locally made delicacies to welcome special friends to their homes.
Chambers said: “The perfect, individually crafted floral design will awe clients and their recipients here on Marco Island and surrounding Naples. Our style is not from a textbook or template as often seen. Rather, each design will have a beautiful vase that is not a typical urn or container. We hand-select our inventory so that our designs are creative, different and unique.”
