Panache, Bluffton's newest business, opened on March 23. The store offers florals and interiors, according to owner Renee Smith. Located at 415 N. Main St., Panache is in the former storefront of Boehr Print.

"You'll find several things in Panache," says Smith.

The store is a full-service florist, offering fresh flowers and silks, blooming plants, floral and interiors with flowers for weddings, parties, proms and funeral. Panache can send flowers anywhere locally and across the United States.

In addition to floral offerings, Panache offers accent tables, chairs and mirrors. It also offers and will soon expand its line of candle and artwork.

"If there's a reason for flowers, we have it," said Smith. "We offer one additional interest feature. We call it 'd'ecor at your door' where we can come to your home and offer suggestions for interior decorations."

Joining Renee Smith in Panache is Doug Smith of Findlay, who is a master designer. He will manage the store and has over 25 years background in floral and design work.

Panache hopes to add several new products soon. These include designer handbags and designer jewelry.

A VIP grand opening, by invitation only, is from 6 to 8:30 p.m., Saturday, April 9. A public grand opening is from 1 to 6 p.m., Sunday, April 10.
