Floral Design Day

Designing flowers is an art form. Like anything else creative, floral designers have to think outside the box and be able to visualize the end product they want to create. As flowers can convey so many different meanings, it is important that a floral designer put their heart and soul into their work. The floral designers at Flowerama Columbus are super talented. As evidenced by the customer testimonials like the one below:

“Steven surpassed all of my expectations for our wedding flowers yesterday. They were absolutely stunning and pulled everything together. We discussed what I pictured but I never could have imagined how incredible the final result would be. I was not knowledgeable enough to discuss flowers very clearly but Steven somehow created arrangements that were exactly what I wanted. I really did cry when I saw them, which I did not expect and don’t like admitting in a review but is a testament to his skill. I absolutely recommend Steven and Botanica. I can not wait to send them the pictures our photographers took with everything in place. Thank you so much”!

People that have an appreciation for art will find flower design creations to be magnificent, colorful and symbolic.  There is a special day devoted to the art of floral design. After all it is a skill to be revered. When you consider the number of stunning flower arrangements delivered all over the world everyday and the countless floral designers involved in the process, it is mind boggling. That is why Floral Design Day is so special to all of the designers in the industry

Floral Day is an off shoot started to honor the birthday of Carl Rittner.  Mr. Rittner ran a school for floral design in Boston appropriately named “The Rittners School of Floral Design”. Students were fond of him and soaked up the vast amount of knowledge he delivered  regarding the industry. Not just students in the United States but International as well.

So how does one become a floral designer in the multibillion dollar floral industry? Obviously it starts with a passion for creating beautiful art. One may enter the floral design industry with a high school diploma but to really hone their skills and develop knowledge, continuing education is invaluable.

Courses offered at community colleges or trade schools can deepen a persons knowledge and understanding of floral design. People can receive on the job training by working in green houses or other horticultural environments. For those truly motivated by a career as a floral designer, it is possible to obtain the Certified Floral Designer credential offered by The American Institute of Floral Designers.

So how would you write a job description for a Floral Designer or Florist? Perhaps like below:

  • Ability to create attractive flower arrangements
  • Understand the life cycle of flowers
  • Understand the properties of flowers like delicacies and toxicity
  • Knowledge of wholesale purchasing
  • Ability to educate consumers on flower and plant care

The Floral Designers at Flowerama Columbus are passionate and creative. You will be delighted with any flower arrangement you purchase.

Flowerama Columbus is and always has been a family run business.  We have one family that has two generations of family members who have worked in this company. There are families who have worked with us so long their extended family members sacrifice their hard-earned vacation time to work in our little flower shop the two busiest floral weeks out of the year. In most cases they claim they have to because they say they married one of our store managers.

Whatever the reason for their dedication their sacrifice makes the difference in our success. We have grandparents and siblings offer to baby sit next generation team members just so we can pull off a holiday. We have friends of employees take time off of work to help out at holidays, many times only excepting payment in flowers.

When we think about it, when we put this to paper, it really is extremely humbling what others are willing to do for a shared success. This is not an about us as owners, but more of an about us as a group of people that have formed a great big family that make this little flower shop successful. In fact, this might be more of a thank you than an about us.

We look forward to serving you in person at one of our four Flowerama Columbus flowers and gift shops again located in Columbus, Ohio | Reynoldsburg Ohio | Westerville Ohio | Whitehall Ohio.  If you prefer the convenience of online shopping, we invite you to login to our convenient and user friendly online store where you will find a large selection of Flowerama flowers and gifts.

Thank you for reading our blog and enjoy Floral Design Day!
