Dallas wedding cake designer Chef Cris Barreiro had the vision to convert her famous “little yellow house” from a wedding cake showroom to a casual bakery shop with her culinary son, Chef Andres Barreiro.

She engaged JH to understand her legacy and goals on creating an intimate, cozy spot for the locals. After analyzing the neighborhood of Kessler Park and Oak Cliff,  JH proposed a friendly high tea shop serving homemade baked goods and tea, done their way, and repositioned the 30-year-old cake and retail shop. We studied Dallas and looked towards the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden high tea program for inspiration, so the goal was to create a community of tea lovers and foodies for south Dallas.

Potpourri Boulangerie continues to be that” little yellow house” destination in Bishop Arts, Dallas offering amazing pastries and high tea.
