Designers of contemporary collections often combine flowers with fruits to make their arrangements good enough to eat, an abundance of fragrant sweet peas displayed in a vase full of strawberries give a terrific look to any summer dinner party. Slices of limes and lemons work wonderfully with white roses to give a clean crisp effect. Miniature trees, stripped of their leaves and replaced by single heads of pastel shades of asters provide an interesting focal point for a large room.
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.
