Start A Flower Arrangements Business

Flower arrangement refers to a decorative display of cut flowers. Floral designers focus on ensuring balance, proportion, scale, unity, harmony, rhythm, balance, and emphasis in every flower arrangement gig.

Whether it is a romantic weekend getaway, a valentine’s dinner, a family get-together, a wedding, or an anniversary, a unique flower arrangement brightens the atmosphere. The flower arrangement tradition has lived with us for a long time, and there are no signs it will fade away, at least in our lifetime.

Are you a florist looking to expand your flower business? Combine your affinity for flowers with your floral design skills to create inspired floral creations. Before starting your flower arrangement career, you will need some training and experience.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a flower arrangements business:

1. Milla Rose ($115K/year)

Ali Matkowsky, the founder of Milla Rose, came up with the idea for her dried flower arrangement business after receiving a dried flower arrangement for Mother's Day. She noticed the growing trend of people investing more in home renovation and decoration during the Melbourne lockdowns, and decided to create a brand that stood out from the competition. With her background in SEO and product photography, she launched her Shopify store and started selling arrangements through Google ads and organic Instagram followers. Within her third month, she made nearly $10,000 in revenue, leading her to quit her job and focus on growing Milla Rose full-time.
