February 28th is Floral Design Day.

Take out the flowers! Flower Design Day is all about appreciating floral design as a unique and creative art form.

It all started with the idea to create a special way of celebrating the birthday of Carl Rittner, founder of the Rittner School of Floral Design in Boston. And yes, the day is official – the Governor of Massachusetts William F. Weld proclaimed it in 1995. History lesson aside, today is an excuse to go wild about flowers and let your inner creative spark. There are so many things that can be done with flowers – the sky’s the limit. On this day, show off your floral talent and create a spectacular floral design with flowers – real, dried, or fake. Draw pictures of floral designs and get the kids involved. Guys can get in on the fun too. Why not arrange an impressive floral bouquet for your leading lady?

Floral Design Day was created as a unique way to celebrate a special birthday of Carl Rittner, the founder of the Rittners School of Floral Design in Boston over 60 years ago.  Mr. Rittner is a pioneer in floral art education. The people at Rittners felt that the idea of a holiday that celebrates floral design as an art form is a wonderful one whose time had come.  So they, along with Mr. Rittner, wanted to see Floral Design Day continue to be observed as an event in its own right.

In 1995, Governor William F. Weld of Massachusetts, proclaimed this day as Floral Design Day.
