Suzu’s Petals: Dug out and open for business  

Submitted to

TRUCKEE – Suzu’s Petals, a new floral studio, has opened for business in Truckee. Susan La Cornu, a long-time Truckee local, has been a florist in the Truckee and North Lake Tahoe area for 30 years. She brings a passion to her work because of her love of all things flowers. Working from her home studio, she offers flowers for weddings and all special occasions, in addition to prom corsages and boutonnieres.

La Cornu loves this community and sharing her diverse talents with all the wonderful people here, as well as the many who choose the beauty of this area for their wedding or special occasion. She has done all phases of floral design, and works with her clients to provide the highest quality and custom designs to fit their needs, from simple white elegance, to colorful summer bouquets. She often adds texture with the unexpected: Herbs, scented geranium, or perhaps, a bit of nature with pine cones, seashells, willows and grass, or feathers and satiny curly-que’s for whimsy. La Cornu also offers the option of choosing organic flowers. She believes in being gentle to the planet and gentle on your skin. Holding a fresh bouquet should be inviting, something to press your nose into, to enjoy the fragrance without the irritation of pesticides and herbicides.

When Susan is not creating beautiful floral designs, she makes exciting floral products. She creates rose bead jewelry from fresh or dried rose petals, as lovely and meaningful keepsakes from weddings, memorials, anniversaries and special occasions. She has also expanded her business into making herbal and floral body products. The most popular being, SapZapper, a natural hand cleaner that removes sap and sticky messes without any chemicals or harsh ingredients, moisturizing chapped dry hands as it cleans.

Lynn Gibson: TBID means local control


I recently read an Opinion letter in the Sierra Sun that truly sparked my emotions and I felt compelled to respond to the biased misinformation I’ve seen printed about North Lake Tahoe’s proposed Tourism Business…
