written by

The course led by floral pro Dee McMeeking, will teach you how to combine your love of design, flowers and styling ready to launch your business as a Floral & Event Stylist.

So what is a Floral Stylist?

Floral stylists or floral designers create pleasing artistic compositions, using floral and botanical elements. Much like a wedding & event designer/stylist a floral stylist will use the principles of design (balance, proportion, rhythm, contrast, harmony, and unity), to create a floral arrangement. Some floral stylists will be florists with a broad range of floral services, whilst others will combine it with similar functions such as editorial or prop styling. A floral stylist may work on projects such as wedding & event florals, editorial styled shoots, still life compositions, or commercial displays.
