Member Spotlight: Flowers By Kim

KIM LAHARGOU is to flowers, what Mozart was to music; she creates masterpieces.  She gathers together strands of nature and produces a symphony of beauty that serves to enhance any of life’s celebrations.

KIm came to the Central Coast from Southern California in 1982.  12 years ago she transitioned from the business world (woking for Wells Fargo Bank and owning an operating a fast food business), to running the family farm with he husband John (20 acres in Paso Robles) and creating her floral business  – Flowers by Kim – 2007

What started out, years ago as a part time hobby, has tuned into a very full time business.  This self-proclaimed ‘Garage Florist’ who had six weddings in her first year of business, now creates arrangements for between 75-100 weddings each year, plus any number of other occasions; birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, etc. 

Her work is exquisite. Every wedding is, by the very nature of the occasion itself, beautiful; Kim’s creations make them more beautiful still. 

She is a really nice person, who also happens to be an incredible business woman. She is a graduate of Floral Design Institute,  a Certified Event Designer through the Institute of Wedding & Event Design and has an AG Business Degree from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.

As good as she is at shaping flowers into stunning bouquets and arrangements, Kim is even better at shaping people.  She is a mentor who helps her employees (and others)  find their passion and develop their talents.  She is one of the most well liked and respected vendors in the wedding industry community, proof of which was the Industry Inspiration Award she received from her peers in 2018.
