Floral design is the art of using flowers and greenery to create arrangements that please the senses. Humans have used flowers to express emotions through gifting and for decorative purposes for centuries. As a result, you’ll find flower arrangements at nearly every special occasion, like weddings, funerals, anniversaries, and birthdays. If you’ve always dreamed of being a floral design expert, you can make this happen with the proper training. Whether you want to launch a career as a Floral Designer, open a floral shop, pick up a fun and relaxing hobby, or launch a new side gig, several classes are available to help you master these creative skills.

Why You Should Learn Floral Design in NYC

If you’re on the fence about learning floral design in NYC, there are many reasons why you should take the plunge. First, it should come as no surprise that New York employs the 4th highest number of Floral Designers in the U.S., earning annual salaries of nearly $40,000 annually. With the enormous amount of businesses and hospitality in NYC, there are many career opportunities for floral professionals. Not only is it an excellent place to find a job, but NYC Floral Designers also have one of the highest pay rates in that field across the country. 

Suppose you aren’t looking to launch a floral design career. Enrolling in a class to learn these valuable skills is an excellent activity with friends and a great way to meet new people in NYC. You can also use your skills to create a side hustle, like selling arrangements on Etsy or working at a local florist creating bouquets and making deliveries. In addition, you can learn floral design as a fun and relaxing new hobby or join a garden club or community group to widen your social circle. For example, explore NYC Parks GreenThumb, where you can join thousands of other volunteers who help sustain the city’s 550 unique green spaces. 

Another excellent benefit of floral design is that it’s a relatively inexpensive hobby since you can grow flowers in and around your living space or in a community garden. And since you can floral design at any age, these relaxing and fun skills will last a lifetime.

Attending an in-person floral design course is an excellent way to meet fellow NYC flower enthusiasts. Not only is it the perfect excuse to venture out into the city to meet new friends, but you’ll also network with like-minded people, which could lead to exciting career opportunities.
