Design a Blossoming Career

Do you have a creative eye and a green thumb? Maybe your love of plants, flowers and design can parlay in to a career as a floral designer. When you earn a floral design certificate, you will learn shape aesthetics, horticulture and concepts of texture and balance. Though formal training isn't a prerequisite for this career, proper training enables better job options.

Thirty students, many of whom are pursuing careers in professional floral design, took on individual projects ranging from special events to weddings as the culmination of their introductory and advanced courses.

The students had about a week and a half in class to work on the project, teacher Theresa Clark said, but they knew about the project when the semester began.

Nichols said the film "Under the Tuscan Sun" inspired her arrangement of orange, reds, whites and greens, she said.

In addition to the flower display of Calla lilies, herbs and olive branches, her project included a book she designed to display drawings of a cake, bridal dress and other parts of her concept wedding.

Floral designers create beautiful flower arrangements for weddings, gifts, and parties and funerals. The floral aesthetic can bring beauty to any occasion, and as a professional floral designer, it will be up to you to come up with these eye pleasing creations. An online floral design certificate can be a practical way to get your foot in the door as a florist or floral designer.
