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 Christmas centerpiece can be made in several ways. You can either create a simple centerpiece of an arrangement of flowers in a low crystal container or make a long centerpiece in a plastic centerpiece tray with a variety of evergreens. Written instructions and step by step videos for how to assemble a Christmas centerpiece using a centerpiece tray and evergreens can be found at my website, along with a list of materials and resources where materials can be acquired.
