Gift, Floral & Café

Distinctive Floral Artistry & Event Planning

My name is Kathy Butler and I am the owner and lead designer at Lakeside Gardens. It has always been my dream to create a place that spawns creativity and nurtures the soul. Lakeside Gardens began as a flower shop and over time has become so much more. Many have said it is reminiscent of a European-style open market café … flowers, gifts, bistro, and bakery. Where nature, food, and people could come together to share and celebrate!

With over 30 years in the flower design industry, my projects have ranged from massive and public such as holiday themes for entire city-block buildings and floral designs for art exhibits,  … to the most intimate and personal such as destination weddings nestled in the Rocky Mountains.

Our business has grown to encompass the many things I love … nature, flowers, herbs from our on-site garden, delicious foods, free-trade coffees, espresso beverages (including our custom-blend mocha made of several of the finest cocoas from around the world), fruit smoothies, sandwiches, salads, and homemade soups.

Food is a celebration. It serves to nourish the body and the spirit and we have tried to honor both in our creations. With the finest ingredients we have created remarkable cookies, cakes, muffins, scones, baklava, granola, and SuperFood bars.
