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.  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!  Gross.  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 we are lucky to 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 macsfloral@gmail.com.

Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.
