While the number of brick-and-mortar flower shops in the US are dwindling, the number of studio florists are rising. So, what is a studio florist?
Studio florists work from a studio and usually fill orders and have consultations by appointment. Some studio florists fill daily orders such as gift arrangements and sympathy work but the majority of studio florists are event florists. These florists design for weddings, parties, corporate events, and other similar work.
Being a studio florist gives me flexibility. It is important to me to give each client the time I think they deserve. I take on a limited number of events because of this. I also provide single arrangements, always ordered a minimum 24 hours in advance. Limiting my work gives me time to create without feeling rushed and helps with my work-life balance.
Have you ever dreamed of being a florist? Would you prefer to work from a studio or have your own shop?
