About Us

We pride ourselves on being able to decipher our clients’ needs and exceed their expectations. We handpick beauty and bloom breath-taking outcomes. From weddings to dinner parties and conferences, we meet your every need — even the ones you don’t know you have.


Our floral company has its roots at the corner of Ashland and Addison. After receiving flowers instead of cash payments for carting flowers, our grandfather, S. Roy Sheffield, created and sold bouquets at that busy street cart intersection.

Roy retired and sold the business to his sons Bill and John in 1964. They focused on delivering fresh flowers to friends and clients, and were recognized for exceptional customer service and product value. Ashland Addison Floral grew.

In 1996, the third generation Bill Jr. and Chris expanded the business in cyberspace. They purchased a building in the West Loop as a base for their Design Center. They also established shops in:

  • The Lakeview Neighborhood

As Ashland Addison Floral continues to branch out, the Sheffield family welcomes fourth generation, Justin Sheffield. With an engineering background, he brings innovative concepts to continue the quality service started in 1932. Aside from his leadership qualities, he offers the company technical support.

The Ashland Addison Florist Company is recognized for quality flowers and design, an amazing selection of plants, delicious gourmet gifts, and event styling services.
