The primary position in a florist is the lead flower designer. This job could be fulfilled by the owner, a manager, or another employee and the task is to create designs using flowers. Even though this may seem pretty basic and simple, it is a very critical position. Every completed floral design will be judged and represents the quality and creativity of the florist shop.
In the mid┯th century Victorian England the tussie_mussie (small bouquet of flowers) were exchanged between Victorian sweethearts expressing secret love messages; a gift of a traditional Valentine flower unique and personal and very fashionable. Victorians considered a young lady to be cultured if she understood the study of flowers.
