Shalimar Flower Shop's Blog


For the last 20 years, Ila has owned and operated Shalimar Flower Shop. Shalimar is a family owned business that makes a variety of floral and gift items for any special occasion.

Ila was born and raised in Ahmedabad, India, where she was one of 7 children. Growing up she always had a passion for the arts, however ended up becoming an Ayurvedic doctor after her studies and opened up a clinic.  She loved what she did, as she got the chance to help people in her community.

In 1980, Ila met a man named Nitin Shah and they later got married and decided to move to Canada. Ila could not continue to practice so she decided to later work at a day care, where she got lead arts and crafts activities with the children.

While she did that, she grew interested in a number of other arts – including the art of designing floral arrangement. As she learned more, she ended up taking all the offered courses, and realized how much she really enjoyed doing this. And she realized others loved her work too.

So Ila started first an at home business where she sold her arts, crafts and floral arrangements to her friends and their friends. Later, she opened Shalimar, her own official flower shop. You can learn more about Shalimar Flower Shop at
