Michele Lunsford (l), and Valerie Groome, owner, with one of the fall designs created at Lake Anna Nursery and Garden Center’s floral business.

Lake Anna Nursery and Garden Center has expanded its services to the community by adding a full time floral designer.

Owners Brandon and Valerie Groome, who purchased the business this spring, have redesigned the interior of the business to carve out a niche for Michele Lunsford to work her magic as the florist.

The shop opened Oct. 2 and offers a wide array of design services including weddings, funerals, light home staging, special events and home décor.

Lunsford, a Unionville native, has been a floral designer for more than 15 years. She recently moved back to the Lake Anna area.

“I am excited for this opportunity,” she said. “My family moved away, and then I got married, and we moved around as well, but now I am back home.”

In addition to floral arrangements, Lunsford creates specialized gift baskets, fruit baskets, silk and live plant arrangements, seasonal décor and balloon arrangements.

“We can create almost anything you need, including diaper cakes and baby themed items, unique wedding arrangements and gifts, almost anything you want or need,” she said.
