Lily and Rose Floral Studio Brings Joy to Marion

Iowa Master Florist, Lora Dodd-Brosseau, is using her 37 years of experience in floral design in her new business, Lily and Rose Floral Studio. The studio, 620 7th Avenue in Marion, will celebrate with a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, February 4 at 4:00 p.m.

Located in a converted 1920’s craftsman style house, Lily and Rose Floral Studio will offer a unique shopping experience including original fresh flower designs, green and blooming plants, and an array of gift items.

Dodd-Brosseau has spent the past 18 years teaching as a Floral Careers professor at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids. Prior to teaching she started in the industry working and in management at local floral shops.

“I love giving flowers, and who doesn’t love receiving them?” said Dodd-Brosseau. “It brings people joy and I get to be part of creating that experience every day.”

In addition to full-service florist, Lily and Rose Floral Studio will offer hands-on workshops on topics including floral design, interior plant care, European dish-gardens, terrariums, seasonal centerpieces, and more.

“I’m really looking forward to sharing my knowledge and passion for plants and flowers with the area,” added Dodd-Brosseau.
