Experience. In our selfie-obsessed, Instagrammable society, experience has become more than just taking in a site, or the best dish ever – It’s now about sharing with your followers whether that be 100 or 100,000. Our society has shifted into realm where sharing the experience is sometimes bigger than just being, and because of that we’ve seen momentous fleets we haven’t seen before.
The biggest event in the last few years that has capitalized on this new shift is the Museum of Ice Cream. In 2016, the first Museum of Ice Cream popped up in Manhattan, and so followed the pastel-laden pictures of sprinkle pools and giant cherries on our Instagram feeds. This was a museum dedicated to fun, creativity and the encouragement of documenting your experience within. As the Museum of Ice Cream pops up around the country, cities are now realizing the power of an interactive exhibit and how rewarding that can be for a community.
Enter the Flower Vault. Flower Vault popped up in San Antonio in March and was the love project of Sarah and Robbie Forrest, a husband and wife who dreamed a world full of petals, pastels and even a giant seesaw. In their words - “We know what it’s like to sit around trying to figure out something fun to do . . . so we created it.”
Five rooms present a space all can get creative in and curate their perfect shot. There are rooms full of colorblocked-blooms, one with giant flowers and even a space with upside down bluebonnets if you’re still cautious about pulling over on the side of the road to take one with Texas’ most prized bloom in the Springtime. It’s hard not to feel giddy getting each shot, and it’s not hard to see why everyone in San Antonio (and surrounding areas) are flocking to this special experience. While tickets were only on sale through early April, there are now dates extending to April 29th. You can book your spot here – But hurry, spots on the weeks go quick. Whether you’re a fashion blogger, taking engagement photos or wanting to do something fun on the weekend – Flower Vault can fulfill all of your Flower-Power wants and needs.
