Hello and welcome to Mac’s Floral
I will start with our most commonly asked question: “How did you come up with the name Mac’s?”
I come from a line of thick Scottish blood (mom was a MacLeod and dad was a McLean) & my grandfather owned a local business called Mac’s Conoco – a service station in the heart of Billings, MT. So in short it’s a family name that I am proud to carry on.
I’m Katie Bennett - owner and lead florist at Mac’s Floral. I began my floral career in faux floral creating displays for a retail store which quickly turned into a passion for design. After a summer in Bozeman, MT assisting a florist with processing & prepping vases I took the plunge. I purchased a business license and started learning everything I could about floral design. Mostly self taught, I made a lot of mistakes along the way and learned some hard lessons. I started slow and took on just a few weddings. Each year it continued to grow and I became more and more inspired by the likes of big florists like Francoise Weeks and countless more – inspiring me to think outside the box and create arrangements that had an ethereal and organic feel. In 2014 I quit working full time and put all my energy into the floral business. It was a big step and I’m still working out the kinks. Over the years we have continued to tweak the business model and now focus primarily on wedding and event floral for the Billings & Red Lodge, MT area. We look forward to a challenge and would love to hear your story. You can reach me through our online friendly contact form or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.
