Rockcastle Florist Voted Best Flower Shop

National Floral Design Day is observed on February 28th this year. This day is the best occasion to reflect on the hard work and artistry Floral Designers put into their job.  People who have a real appreciation for art know that designing a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers takes skill, patience and artistry. For the most part, it is only these Floral Design artists that are able to create masterpieces that customers want to purchase.

Rockcastle Florist employs people that have these unique talents. They know that flowers demonstrate a sense of caring which is the foundation for a great product. Floral Design Day actually began in 1995 when the Governor of Massachusetts proclaimed this National Floral Design Day.

Possessing a talent for artistry, the Floral Designers in the several billion-dollar floral industry space, are simply creative people. To become a Floral Designer, a person typically needs to be a high school graduate. Then there are numerous classes these individuals may take to further their knowledge and skill.  There is even a designation offered by The American Institute of Floral Designers for Certified Floral Designer.


Rockcastle Florist Arrangements to Celebrate National Floral Design Day

The Floral Design team at Rockcastle Florist is one of the most talented you will find in the Floral Industry. The fundamental job description for these folks, and others in the industry, would require that the Floral Designer possess:

  • Sufficient knowledge of flowers and plants to educate customers on proper care. Such detail as proper watering, sunlight and room temperatures are important for customers to be educated on. In addition, being capable to set customer expectations for the expected life cycle of their flower or plant purchase is critical.
  • Some knowledge of the wholesale acquisition of product. Rockcastle Florist buys products from different farms. The Floral Designers have to understand that process.
  • Above all, the Floral Designer must possess a strong passion for caring and pride in artistry when creating flower arrangements for customers.
