If Millennial Pink, geometric jewelry, and succulents, are your jam then you need to pay a visit to the San Diego shop known as Pigment. Located in the trendy neighborhood of North Park, Pigment takes chic boutique to a new level. They have everything from candles, cards, and hanging chairs, to plants, pots, and party goods.
A fan favorite is their Plant Lab bar where you can make your very own terrarium creations. Pots and hanging glass orbs range from $7-30 dollars and then you pay as you plant! In addition to their wide variety of succulents, they also have air plants and cactus. You can make your mini garden pop by adding mosses, colored sand, and gemstones.
Although Pigment offers workshops from time to time, you do not need a reservation to take advantage of the Plant Lab. Just be sure that you start planting at least an hour before closing time so you have plenty of time to browse through your options and create your masterpiece. If the task seems a little daunting to you, never fear, they have some adorable ready-made landscapes starting at $25. I personally took advantage of the terrarium bar for my DIY obsessed tween’s birthday. It was the perfect project for her guests before her birthday dinner. Plus, it doubled as their party favor!
If you would like to book a Planting Party for 6 or more you can reserve a spot with the guarantee of the private party area and a dedicated Green Team Educator for $250. Small group with a flexible timeline? Feel free to walk-in and wait your turn to get your plant on.
Don’t forget to take a photo in front of their beautiful living wall before you leave the building. Kudos to their marketing team on organic exposure, I mean, who doesn’t want to take advantage of a great photo op in front of an insta-worthy backdrop! Snap, hashtag, share!
I hope you get a chance to check out this little Southern California gem.
