About Me

lynette-dorfner-mug-shotWelcome to Lynette’s Touch of Design. I’m happy you stopped by my website. Below is a little bit about me and my experience.

The beginning

In the early 1970s, during high school, I began working for the third largest florist in St. Paul, Minnesota — Nedved’s Flowers. It was a family business of over four generations. While working there, I learned the art of floral design, customer service, plant care and design, as well as all aspects of the floral business. The hands-on experience I received at Nedved’s was a rare and excellent opportunity for a wide range of training in the floral industry. As a high school student, I won several awards in my job training program for my floral displays.

After high school, I worked full-time at a small — but very busy — floral shop in Marshall, Minnesota. I had the opportunity to design floral arrangements of all styles and categories.

My business

In the late 1970s, I started my own business, which is when Lynette’s Touch of Design was born. At that time, I realized my true passion was assisting brides in personalizing their bouquets and decor for their wedding days.

I continue to create designs primarily as an event florist, but I will make special birthday, anniversary and holiday bouquets. Personal consultations are an important part of my business. These consultations help me fully understand the desires of a customer.

In addition, I create sympathy pieces for funerals. Even though times of loss are very difficult, it’s a privilege to assist people during their grieving process and help them honor their lost loved ones.

Personal service

Aside from beautiful floral pieces, my strength is personal service. I am fully committed to my customers from start to finish, surpassing expectations. My preference is to deliver flowers to the ceremony and reception sites to ensure placement is correct. I even pin on the corsages and boutonnieres so they live up to their visual potential.

I am here to listen and deliver your ideal custom floral creations. I look forward to hearing from you.
