Overview

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.
