Katy Billings, owner of BloomHeart Flower Company, which opened its doors Monday
BloomHeart Flower Company celebrates its grand opening Wednesday. The web-based, artisan florist provides the Chattanooga community with personal and subscription flowers that come with a unique personal touch. With each flower arrangement ordered, the recipient will also receive a complimentary bloom to be given away to brighten someone else’s day, a Bloom from the Heart.
This idea stems from owner Katy Billings. She said, “Flowers have always been a part of my story. As a little girl I’d help my grandmother tend to her roses, and that desire to create and enjoy beauty is still a part of me. A marketer by trade, I was eager to use my creativity differently than before, and I’ve always loved seeing how giving someone flowers can lift their spirits and alter their day. I’m hoping Bloom from the Heart can connect strangers, neighbors, family, and people with differences. A little love can go a long way.”
BloomHeart receives the majority of its blooms from local flower farms. This partnership is an effort to decrease the dependence on imported flowers and support regional farmers, thereby strengthening the local economy and shedding light on the quality of American-grown flowers, said Ms. Billings.
Ms. Billings resides in St. Elmo with her husband Brett and their two fur babies, chocolate lab Roux and orange tabby Grace.
