Our Story

Located in Charming Evanston, Illinois, MilleFiori Florist has been serving Chicago’s Northshore with creative floral designs since 1996. Husband and wife team, Charlie and Tracy Mullenix, took over the business in 2005. When the opportunity came for them to have their own shop, they were excited to be in a great neighborhood to start their family business and grow within the community. Eager to grow, they started to focus on not only fresh flowers but carrying a wide variety of green and blooming plants as well as an array of unique gift items.

Tracy has been in the floral industry for over 25 years. One of her first jobs was working at a flower shop in high school. After graduating college, she found a position working at MilleFiori Florist. She has a passion for connecting with clients and understands the power and emotion that floral design can have on people. Envisioning, creating, and witnessing how flowers can elevate an event is one of her favorite aspects of floral design.

Charlie, after graduating college, worked for his family’s small business. This taught him about the financial side of managing your own business. As a plant enthusiast, he feels that houseplants play an important part in any space. Bringing plants into your home or office is not only aesthetically pleasing but offers many health benefits as well. He also enjoys assisting customers and spreading his knowledge of plants to all.

We strive to create fresh, exciting designs. Our shop is built on the foundation of creativity, originality, quality, and most importantly, customer service. Every order we design and deliver is viewed as a commitment to the customer. Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal.

When Charlie and Tracy aren’t at the shop, they are likely spending time with their twins, Adelyn and Greyson, being outdoors in nature or getting dirty in their garden.
