My Flower Story

When I was 16, I began working at the flower shop inside Dominick’s grocery store, and over the next 3 years, my love for flowers BLOOMED!

I must admit, I was more excited to create arrangements for the cooler and make custom bouquets for customers, than I was for doing inventory and re-ordering more product. But...much, MUCH later, I realized that my unique work experience of seeing how a small flower shop was run, was truly a gift that would come in handy later.

In my 20s, I enrolled in a  Psychology program with a focus on Buddhist Studies, but my main priority was my family. My husband and I had our son, and I was fortunate to stay at home with him. I was able to find time for some business & marketing courses along the way, as I knew I wanted to own a business.  

Over the years, I enjoyed designing floral centerpieces for special events at my son’s school. YEAH! I loved to get my mind thinking & hands working!

Then one day, I had a spark of creativity while listening to Regina Spektor and hearing her amazing vocals. It’s interesting how her wonderfully odd lyrics made me feel inspired & motivated. I started to think...why am I not doing what I truly love everyday?!? I love FlOWERS! Flowers had me at HELLO 💐

So I got busy making floral creations, worked on clearing out a new work space (really it became a flower explosion in my house...just ask my husband) and then I focused on the business plan. Hah! Maybe a bit backwards, but creatives do it best this way. 😂

Update: Between 2012-2019 Chicago Silk Florist has taken orders to make faux arrangements for home decor, weddings, and other special events. We’ve loved setting up booths at art and craft fairs. Now we’ve decided to make some changes and open up a few different sites that will specialize in particular products. So lots of creativity is at play as we speak!!! It’s exciting because BIG changes are underway.

On 9.10.19, Floral Scribble, A Flower Pen Company was born with help from my husband! I like the idea 💡 of creating both beautiful & functional items, that help make parties, events or your office space extra special. ❤️
