Bella Florals by Theresa will celebrate its first anniversary on Marco Island with a ribbon-cutting and grand opening of its new location at 9 Front St. at 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19.
Owner Theresa Chambers, who relocated her business from Wilmington, North Carolina, in April 2015, found a dedicated partner in Djenana Ninkovic, whom she met while working in North Carolina. Having trained in Europe, Ninkovic adds a special flair to the shop’s repertoire.
“The perfect, individually crafted floral design will awe clients and their recipients here on Marco Island and surrounding Naples,” Chambers said. “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.”
Bella Florals provides consultations, floral designs for special events and gift baskets with seasonal delicacies at reasonable prices for in-home or business use. The staff also offers workshops and classes.
The business has even incorporated an element of sustainability by launching its own “grow local” component, raising flowers from scratch at the Front Street venue to serve the Marco Island and Naples areas.
“We hand-select our inventory so that our designs are creative, different and unique,” Chambers said.
