Take out the flowers! Flower Design Day is all about appreciating floral design as a unique and creative art form.
It all started with the idea to create a special way of celebrating the birthday of Carl Rittner, founder of the Rittner School of Floral Design in Boston. And yes, the day is official – the Governor of Massachusetts William F. Weld proclaimed it in 1995. History lesson aside, today is an excuse to go wild about flowers and let your inner creativity spark. There are so many things that can be done with flowers – the sky’s the limit. On this day, show off your floral talent and create a spectacular floral design with flowers – real, dried or fake. Draw pictures of floral designs and get the kids involved. Guys can get in on the fun too. Why not arrange an impressive floral bouquet for your leading lady?
