What is a Florist?

A florist is someone who arranges flowers and other plant elements into a pleasing design. The arrangements are used primarily for celebratory events like weddings, birthdays and Valentines Day, but are also used for hotels, catered events, homes, funerals and saying 'I love you'. Florists were once almost exclusively owners of small independent shops; however, with the recent invention of internet-based delivery services and all-in-one convenience markets, many are now employed by larger companies.

​What does a Florist do?

A florist will design and create arrangements of flowers in bouquets, vases, centrepieces, wreaths, and other elements. Sometimes florists may design entire rooms or outdoor areas, and fill them with flowers in pleasing arrangements. This is especially true in the case of extravagant weddings or parties.

Some florists stick to pre-formatted layouts in order to design their flower arrangements, while others are true artists, or floral designers, who create their own patterns or design original works. 

Though creating floral arrangements for events and parties is the typical responsibility of a florist, they are also artists who may create designs for other purposes. There are floral competitions, for example, where floral artists create elaborate displays and art pieces. Pieces can include a ladies' hat made entirely from leaves, or a temporary sculpture of a horse made from the stems and heads of sunflowers. With success in these competitions, a florist will improve their reputation and often receive more business as a result.

In addition to arranging flowers, a florist is also responsible for their care. They must be proficient in all aspects of plant care and be able to maintain a wide variety of species in the flower, foliage, herb and ornamental grass families. Plants used in arrangements must be picked at the peak of their beauty and last as long as possible after being delivered to the client. Successful florists will choose a balance between the hardiest and most beautiful species.

Though many floral designers work in retail, some become so knowledgeable and passionate about plant care that they are able to transition to working in a wholesale capacity. Wholesale florists operate business-to-business organizations in which they grow plants specifically for retail floral shops. In addition, they may create pre-designed floral arrangements that are disbursed to convenience stores.
