National Floral Design Day is observed annually on February 28th according to National Day Calendar.  For thousands of years, using flowers in designs has been an important cultural art form. This is the day we celebrate that art form.  It may be in a bouquet or in your groom’s boutenniere, painting, in a textile, a garden or floral arrangement.


According to the Rittners School of Floral Design, the original idea behind Floral Design Day, was an unique way to celebrate a special birthday of Carl Rittner, who founded our school. 

Mr. “R” as our students affectionately called him, founded The Rittners School of Floral Design, in Boston, over sixty years ago. He was a pioneer in floral art education. Through the years, his humor, patience and wealth of floral industry knowledge have had a marked impact upon thousands of students from all over the globe.

So it was particularly meaningful when Gov. Weld of Massachusetts proclaimed Floral Design Day as part of Mr. Rittner’s special birthday celebration.

Floral art is a very unique art form in that it plays an important role in our social interactions, for decorating, establishing and maintaining relationships, and generally enhancing the overall quality of our lives…….

In celebration of Floral Design Day, we thought we would share some of our favorite bridal bouquets from two of our favorite designers, Amber and Ashley of Southern Belles & Blooms!

Don’t forget to use #FloralDesignDay when you post your favorites on social media.

Flowers are as unique as the person choosing them! When planning a wedding, flowers are often used in the bridal bouquet, groom’s boutonniere and for centerpieces. What colors and flowers will you choose for your bouquet and wedding celebration?
