History of National Floral Design Day

Today’s weird holiday celebrates floral design – whether that’s arranging physical flowers or recreating them with art.

Floral designers are creative with a keen eye for color and style. Whether designing a simple bouquet, arranging beautiful botanic gardens, or making digital artworks with images of flowers, floral design requires talent and technique.

Carl Rittner, founder of the Rittners School of Floral Design in 1947, is the inspiration for this weird holiday. His fans and employees at Rittners chose this day to celebrate his birthday over 60 years ago. He was born in 1917 and was 30 years old. Rittner was a pioneer in floral art education, and received his Master’s Degree in Education at Boston Unitersity.

In 1995, the governor of Massachussetts, William F. Feld, designated January 28 as Floral Design Day.

In modern times, floral design is a multi-billion dollar industry.
