Petals, a new high-end, European floral shop has opened at 927 Nicollet Mall in the first floor of Rush's Bridal.

Co-owners Linda Wells and Nicole Chittenden specialize in unique and offbeat creations, such as arrangements with fruit, feathers, scarves and neck ties.

"It's whatever the customers desires. We'll try to incorporate it somehow," Chittenden said, a 10-year veteran of the floral business who has also worked in New York City and Madison, Wis.

She described her style as "romantic" and "lush." As for flower containers, she said anything goes, from votive candle holders to standard vases.

Prices range from $10 for a small vase and flowers to $75 for more elaborate arrangements.

Store hours are weekdays, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturdays, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
