There’s something magical about receiving the gift of flowers, whether it’s a hand-picked bouquet from the garden or the kind of elaborate arrangements Lake Forest resident Katie Ford now offers with her Flowers By Katie Ford floral design studio.
Growing up in Pennsylvania, Ford says she and her mother shared a passion for gardening and arranging flowers into artful creations that brought people joy. “Her dream was always to be a florist. That love rubbed off on me,” Ford explains. “It’s such a treat to see the happiness they bring to people when they receive an arrangement.”
For those with Valentine’s Day on their minds, Ford says she is standing by for last minute orders. To learn more more about Flowers by Katie Ford, visit flowersbykatieford.com, or call 312-343-1863.
