What is a floral designer?
Indeed, reports that a floral designer, also called a florist, is a professional who creates decorative displays, bouquets, and arrangements using plants, flowers, and other accessories.
A florist typically works with fresh flowers, but they can also use dried or artificial ones and often include other types of greenery. They create floral arrangements for many occasions, such as weddings, banquets, festivals, and other special ceremonies or holidays.
A floral designer's work varies daily as their customers or clients have different needs depending on the size of the arrangement and how much time it will take to complete.
