Floral artist, wedding decorator or interior flower designer ?
All these floral arrangements were made by our students or instructors. Some of them were made in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy and some of them were made at a wedding hall.
If you have not yet set up your goal for learning floral designs, you should do so. Roughly speaking most of students want to become one of under mentioned artist:
1. Interior Floral Designer
2. Wedding Floral Decorator
3. General Floral Artist
If you specialize in floral arrangements mainly used for interior home decorations, you can be called Interior Floral Designer no matter whether it is your hobby or business. If your primary job is offering floral decorating services for weddings, you can be called Wedding Floral Decorator (or Wedding Floral Designer).
If you make floral arrangements for a wide range of purpose and event, you can be called a General Floral Artist who can make not only interior floral arrangements for home decoration but also office arrangements as well as wedding and some other event designs such as funeral and grand opening etc.
The most ideal way is running a floral shop and work as a General Floral Artist who can make a broad range of floral arrangements. In order to implement this idea, you need a considerable amount of budget required for learning a wide range of floral designs, the fee for opening a floral shop and possibly hiring employee(s) to take care of a florist operation. Although this business requires considerable amount of initial capital, if the operation becomes successful, it will bring good amount of profit. However the problem is that it takes lots of time to reach BREAK EVEN POINT because the owner must pay expensive running cost.
Among above mentioned three types of floral artists, the easiest and most realistic one is Interior Floral Designer. You don't need so much initial capital compared with running a floral shop. Especially if you do interior floral designs as a hobby, you are 100% free from any headache, negotiation or cash flower management etc etc.
Then how about wedding floral decorator ? As you know, wedding flowers represent very high portion of flower design business. Therefore if you successfully penetrate this market, it MAY bring lots of profit to you. Offering wedding flower arrangement sounds beautiful.
