What is a Florist?

Updated: Feb 16



Hey world!

my name is Alexis Christine I am 21, and I have been a florist for the past 6 years!


From working at my small town flower shop to working at a multi million dollar wedding company, to now running my very own side wedding flower biz, Ive done it all,…


I created this Blog/YouTube channel to help others jumpstart their career in floral design!




In this Blog/channel you can find helpful tutorials, business tips and advice, lifestyle vlogs and more!


If you love flowers like I do then subscribe to my channel for more videos and follow me on Instagram at @flowersbyalexis



Now you might be thinking, "Alexis, what is a florist?"

According to the dictionary,...


Florist (n) : A person who sells and arranges plants and cut flowers.


I THINK THATS BORING


We don’t just “arrange flowers” Karen…


Florists are problem solvers, engineers, therapists and most importantly, ARTISTS!


The most common reason why people use a florist is to send flowers for different occiaions.


This can be for a birthday, anniversary, get well, sympathy, wedding…



Theres literally a million reasons on why someone could send flowers!




If you are curious as to what a florist does on a day to day basis then check out day in the life of a florist video where I will walk through a day in my life and show you the craziness that is my life lol


If you want to know how much money I make check this video "how much money does a florist ACTUALLY make?"



I break down all the price points that I made through my own experience plus research on how much you could be making as a florist at different points of your career.

In next weeks blog post/video I am going to explaining the differences between a retail florist VS. Wedding florist to find out which of the two, would be the best career option for you!


Thank you so much for reading another post, I will see you all in my next one,


Bye!
