At Lumsden Florist, visitors create their own fresh bouquets from indi-vidual flowers purchased a la carte or choose one of the shop’s pre-assembled arrangements put together by its creative team of petal peddlers. Patrons looking to try their hand at the floral arts can step into the store’s walk-in cooler and choose from a seasonally changing selection of blooms (starting at $3 each) that can include freshly cut daisies, sunflowers, and roses. The shop specializes in tropical and exotic nosegays fashioned from orchids and birds of paradise, both of which can play starring roles in the blue and orange Tropical Paradise arrangement (starting at $60). Meanwhile, the bright and cheerful Spring Fresh bouquet (starting at $45) bursts with colourful vernal emblems such as daffodils, daisies, and discarded Easter eggshells.
Housed in the historic Cornerstone Balfour Boutique Mall, Lumsden Florist employs a friendly, knowledgeable staff that purveys their pollinated wares under a vintage 1902 ceiling hung with green paper lanterns.
Happily married shop owners Rachel and Sean Brimacombe refer to their business as their "love child," which makes sense considering that they created their aromatic enterprise together before getting married in the summer of 2011. From their location in the Cornerstone Balfour Boutique Mall, Lumsden Florist procures bundles of fresh flowers, fending off bumblebees still in hot pursuit to create signature arrangements for any occasion. Potted greenery and flowering tropical plants bring life into households and businesses, and gift baskets filled with gourmet snacks and bottles of wine make impromptu picnics a constant possibility. The Brimacombes consult with clients in their shop's parlour to design services for weddings or funerals, and offer delivery services for special surprise bouquets.
