FAQs

  • Introduction

    If you have an upcoming event — such as a wedding, baby shower, birthday, or work event — flowers can really elevate the entire space. Flowers add a nice touch of color, scent, and elegance that everyone can appreciate. Of course, you can't just have random flowers around the room. Instead, you should hire floral design services, so your flowers are displayed as one cohesive, beautiful look.

    Floral design is often a costly service, but it can be worth it to make your event that much more special. A floral designer will work with you to understand the types of flowers and colors you want and make sure the final design matches your overall event theme.

  • What is floral design?

    Floral design is the process of arranging flowers and plants into an eye-catching display that's beautiful and balanced. Floral design may work with real or artificial flowers, or a mixture of both. The arrangements can come in vases, bowls, baskets, flower walls, or as display structures, such as arches.

  • How do you become a floral designer?

    A floral designer doesn’t need a college degree, but some choose to earn an associate’s degree in floral design, floristry, or horticulture. Additionally, a floral designer can choose to get the floral designer credential offered by the American Institute of Floral Designers. Ultimately, though, it's on-the-job experience that helps people become skilled floral designers.

  • How much do floral designers make?

    According to Salary.com, floral designers in the United States make an average of $52,475 annually. The range for floral designer salaries is between $33,608-$73,381. Compensation can vary depending on which state you work in, how much you work, your experience, and your reputation.

  • Who hires floral designers?

    A lot of people need floral designers, most often for events. People hire floral designers for their weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, corporate events, gender reveal parties, and engagement parties. Additionally, many retailers hire floral designers to decorate their stores.

  • What are mechanics in floral design?

    The mechanics in floral design are the supplies, methods, and materials a floral designer uses to keep the floral arrangement together. The four main elements of floral design are shape, space, color, and texture. A floral designer considers all of these when putting arrangements together, as well as how the arrangement will hold its shape.

  • Why is color important in floral design?

    Color is perhaps the most important aspect of floral design because it's what people notice first. The colors in a floral arrangement need to complement each other and work cohesively. Additionally, a floral arrangement’s colors need to typically match the theme and the other decorations of the event.
