Floral Design Day is a day to celebrate the artistic flair and creativity of professional designers across the country. The day was originally established as a tribute to Carl Rittner, whose School of Floral Design was considered visionary and innovative, giving credence to the talent of florists everywhere and dispelling the myth that they simply "placed flowers in a vase". Applying the concepts of the visual arts - color, texture, space and line - the industry was elevated and recognized as an artistic discipline unto itself. For those who have dedicated their lives to making the world more beautiful - we celebrate you! Read More about The Artistry of Floral Design »
