Petals by Carmille opens boutique gift shop in Mena Plaza Hotel Al Barsha
DUBAI – Dubai-based flower shop Petals by Carmille opened its boutique gift shop at Mena Plaza Hotel in Al Barsha on Wednesday (November 14).
The opening was graced by Petals by Carmille’s Marycel Molina Roxas and Mena Plaza Hotel’s General Manager Issam Sabbagh.
The gift shop in the lobby area houses Petals by Carmille’s unique selection of preserved roses and elegant handcrafted jewelleries and accessories.
“With our tagline of ‘Say it with flowers’ and ‘Delivering happiness’, we have made a very big impact with all the OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) in the UAE and long-distance relationship couples,” said Roxas, whose flagship store in Al Ghurair Centre is the go-to flower shop for visiting Filipino celebrities in the UAE.
Roxas said she is glad to have a new avenue for the unique blooms. “There is a growing demand for preserved roses in the UAE after it was introduced to the market here. People love it for the aesthetics and practicality – it’s as real as freshly cut roses, the only difference is they don’t wilt,” Roxas said.
Roxas added that she is also excited to introduce handcrafted glass jewellery, accessories and figurines unique to the UAE market.
“With the Mena Plaza Hotel branch we will mainly be promoting the glass jewelleries skillfully and artistically handcrafted all the way from Thailand,” she said.
“They are all handcrafted using the fire blowing process,” Roxas said, adding that the wearable art pieces are unique and are perfect as gifts.
