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?”
Well, 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.
My name is Katie Bennett and I am the owner and lead florist at Mac’s Floral. I began my floral career in faux floral – I know! I can’t imagine going back now, but it was also what led me to appreciate flowers for so many reasons. After a summer in Bozeman 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 in the beginning to get my feet wet. Each year it continued to grow and I became more and more fascinated 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 – being your own boss has it’s appeal, but sometimes I need someone to keep me on track! 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 email@example.com.
Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.
