But for those of you who prefer to read,...


1. Florists are ALWAYS GOING TO BE A NEEDED!! (Even in a pandemic)

Fresh flowers never go out of style. Trends may change, but people will always continue to get married, and have events.

Even during a global pandemic! Florists are needed more then ever, flowers lift up sprits and make people happy!

2. Creative outlet

I love doing artsy related jobs. I love being a florist because I get to design cool flower arrangements every day.

Not to mention, some of the flowers I work with are really cool!


Before I was a florist I went to a technical high school for graphic design.

If you need graphics done, contact me at for graphic design inquiries! I design all the graphics on my instagram and even my own logo!

I liked the creative artsy part, but I was sitting all day and I didn’t like that I was glued to a computer all day.

Which brings me to my next point,

3. Travel to cool locations

As a florist I travel a lot to different venues locations in my area, Pennsylvania.

This has allowed to me see a lot a really cool places and explore areas of Pennsylvania that I never would have typically gone too, but I am glad I did!

Traveling to these venues and places has allowed me to met and network with people who are also in the wedding industry!

4. College degee isn’t necessary

This may come to a surprise to most, but you don’t need a degree to become a florist!

A lot of florists are entrepreneurs which I will talk about in a second,...

But you may want to get a degree in business, because being a florist is more than just arranging flowers!

Or get a degree in art, or Interior design for all you floral stylist!
