There are florists that are amazing flower designers and they don't have much previous experience _ they possess natural talents for creating beautiful designs and receive positive feedback on their design. There are others that require instruction and training before being able to create fabulous designs and receiving the good feedback. For those who fall into the latter case, the designer should seek out and take training classes as well as locating potential mentorship possibilities. Together these will help the person to enhance their skills and increase the amount of good reviews they receive. Also those in this latter category may do best, at least in the beginning, working in a designer position that follows recipes or formulas.
A gift basket is fun to put together and even more fun to give. All you need to do is find a basket or a Christmas container and put a few things in it. Some things that you could put in the gift basket include, a bud vase with a single flower, such as a red Gerber daisy, rose, or lily, a Christmas movie, a Christmas book, Christmas tree ornaments, holiday cookie cutters, and/or treats. First attach the bud vase in the container with floral clay. Then, if you use a wicker basket, use some festive Christmas tissue paper or other pretty paper to line it. Last arrange the gift items in the basket so it looks pretty and appealing. This would make a great gift for a coworker, teacher, sibling, or that person who just seems to have everything.
