Your Island Blooms Team
Friends, Family and Flowers are perhaps three of the most important and reoccurring themes throughout our lives. Whether we are celebrating a birth, marriage, or lamenting over the loss of a loved one, we return to those three simple words and recount how they impact us so deeply.
Island Blooms was founded by three women who understand how these moments and milestones make up your life. This mother/daughter team shares an extraordinary bond, and each has taken a unique path that perfectly compliments the other with exclusive expertise and familiarity.
Marilyn Hirni Mitchell is the family and company matriarch, with over 50 years of experience owning and operating one of the most successful florists in South Florida. After retiring to her family vacation home in the Florida Keys, Marilyn realized that the remaining chapters in her own story still included the milestones of her client’s stories, and so, she continues her passion from her home base in Tavernier, Florida with her two daughters and business partners, Lori and Lisa.
Identical twins Lori and Lisa may look and sound alike, but their unique drive and determination has brought each individual success in very different genres. Lisa Mitchell Gory pursued a career in sales and hospitality and held executive roles for over 20 years at world-renowned hotel properties in South Florida.
Lori Mitchell Mize, the older sister (by 18 minutes) graduated from Florida State University with a business degree and embarked upon an impressive and vastly successful independent entrepreneurial venture. After starting two companies and building them into small empires, Lori returned home to relish in the salt air and the crystal waters of the Florida Keys.
These three women provide the perfect trifecta of design, planning and coordination expertise. While independently amazing, they recognize that together, they provide an experience that is unsurpassed.
