April showers bring spring May flowers, right? If not, head on down to Lakeside Floral, where you’ll always find beautiful, bountiful bouquets.
Elishia Robson, owner of Lakeside Floral, has a passion for flowers, and every day she is creating one-of-a-kind, unique floral arrangements for her customers. With a degree in interior design, her skills of creating aesthetically pleasing floral arrangements are put to good use. “I pride myself on my use of colors and floral textures,” says Robson.
She says a lot of her business typically is from weddings and funerals but has shifted because of the pandemic. Despite that, many people come in for gifts, grab-and-go’s and custom orders. With custom orders, Robson says if you give her a price range and what you want, she’ll make it. She likes honing-in on her customer’s style and/or mood to create the perfect customized arrangement.
“Each time you come in,” says Robson. “I’m making the arrangement for you.”
Robson has had a long relationship with Lakeside Floral. She bought the store six years ago from the previous owners, whom she used to work for in high school. Since then, Robson has been pursuing her love for all things floral.
To preserve the longevity of the flowers, she keeps everything in coolers for a week and takes care of each flower by cutting and cleaning their stems. And for this spring’s floral trends, Robson says bright colors are the name of the game. “With the pandemic and long winter, people want color in the house,” says Robson. “They want freshness.”
