"There are always flowers for those who want to see them."

I’m Lynda, a wedding florist and event stylist in Des Moines, Iowa. Growing up, I spent a lot of time on the family dairy farm, where I developed a love of animals and nature. I am inspired by finding and incorporating vintage and farmhouse-style components in to my work and I am always on the look-out for unique vintage finds to help raise your event experience to the next level!

I have been working with flowers for almost half of my life, along with being a mom and a nurse. I've worked in flower shops, wedding studios, greenhouses, and landscape companies. Sometimes I would have to work extra hours at the hospital to afford getting to learn more about flowers! To finally take all that I have learned and experienced both in life and in my floral work is a true dream come true.  

With certifications as both a Master Florist and Master Gardener, I try to apply all of the floral education and experience I have to make sure that your floral needs are met with the greatest degree of satisfaction possible! 


meet Chico and Casey

My dogs, Casey and Chico are the honorary mascots of Lavender Blue. 

Chico (left) enjoys viscously attacking stuffed donuts, eating his food directly off the floor and cuddling up next to us on the couch.

Casey (right) likes naps, barking for no reason, rolling in the grass and eating too much.
