THE LIFESTYLE:

Event floral designers are able to have plenty of alone time as they correspond with their clients and plan designs in advance from the comfort of their home or studio. They then become surrounded by people as the events near and production begins.

 

Event florists work seasonally, enjoying copious amounts of off-time and then diving head first into a very rigorous work schedule for months at a time. It can be stressful during the busy months, but event florists learn how to perfect their systems and hire great help. Plus, the benefit is a nice long break.

 

This career is great for folks who have young children and want to enjoy a large portion of the year with their family. However, there needs to be some flexibility during the busy months and childcare will probably be necessary.

 

Travel is a great possibility for floral design, but not required. Weddings happen everywhere!

 

 

 

THE SALARY:

$30,000-$200,000 (and beyond)

What you earn as an Event Florist completely depends on your skill level, how well your portfolio conveys your skill, your relationships you’ve built with vendors, and your communication with potential clients.
