Flower designs, flower trends, and flower colors all change for fall. Now we have an emphasis on rust browns, oranges, berries, mums, and pheasant feathers. Also joining these fall favorites are winter greens. For me, I’m off to start our inaugural school semester in Indianapolis – highly looking forward to that.
Great Designers Needed! The flower business has never been more in need of great designers; I get calls every week and I can sense there’s a lack of talent out there. If you’re not getting hired by a florist, you’re interviewing incorrectly. Remember what I told you: the three points to talk about when your interviewing is what you know how to do – tape and wire, green in, flower in. Also mention everything you’ve done in class and then talk about getting the job done.
Move, move, move. Say you want to be part of their team. I’m telling you, if they’re looking, they will hire you. Show some enthusiasm and energy. These qualities are the number one things they look for.
One-day Winter Design Classes
I’ll be hosting one-day winter design classes in every city. If you’re interested, send me an e-mail and we’ll select a date that works for you. It’ll be a one-day design seminar, featuring lots of pine, cedar, and balsams. Do it in time for the holidays, sometime before the end of November.

I’m looking forward to the change of seasons. Fall is actually my favorite time of the year for designing. As always, I’m available to answer any of your questions. Be sure to join us on Facebook.
