Special occasions call for cheery flowers. Whether it is a special holiday like Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, or a wedding, funeral, high school prom, birthday or something to cheer up a friend, Beds of Roses is a proud local business ready to serve you.
You probably recognize the name of this well-known business because Beds of Roses has been a successful floral shop in Lakewood since 1990. They were located first at Bridgeport & 112th, then for many years at Avondale & Gravelly Lake Drive, across from Safeway. In June, they took over a more spacious location, the former Lakewood Florist building on Bridgeport & 59th Street.
During a recent visit to the shop, Keith Bishop, the energetic and warm owner, and Tauscha Smith, "budding" floral designer and dependable delivery person, were cheerful and competent. The shop is a feast for the eyes and nose! The sweet aroma of fresh roses and assorted bouquets meets you upon entering. An expansive display case along one wall contains arrangements in all shapes, colors and sizes. There are abundant healthy and vibrant green plants in cute wooden animal-shaped planter boxes, handmade by Keith’s retired carpenter dad, a must see if you like frogs, dogs or swans. Keith’s dad will custom-make planter boxes to customer specifications.
At this new and larger location, there is a wedding consultation room and a counter where clever balloon bouquets can be created in a jiff. Ask Keith about the single rose he continues to deliver each week to a local widow. All of the high quality flowers, cards and gift items and the outstanding customer service you will receive at Beds of Roses, are a breath of fresh air.
