It consumes your life with some weeks doing 50+hours, and you have to love it completely. Between the picky customers, and other floral shops or wire services that will send you below minimum priced items, it's a stressful job! For anyone who feels that this job is a dream, I suggest interning at a real flower shop around the holiday season (late october until late june) and see if it's really what you want to do! I'm going into my 7th year, and I love it, but it's not for everyone :) This is my first christmas eve I won't be working since I'm driving out of town... and i'm very excited! Thanks to 'flower shop girl' for putting it very well :) 5 years Well I hate to pop everyone bubbles, however, flowers don't smell anymore, they are forced grown and genetically engineerd so the scent is gone. All day long we deal with primadonas and bridezillas. If you are an owner, you don't set your own hours. You basically work 12 hour days 7 days a week on your feet, in the cold. And basically you are the employee of lots of people. Oh and you work EVERY holiday and by the time you get home you are so tire you don't even want to know about them. It is a nice fantasy though. SKC-Sparkle 5 years I love getting flowers, but flower shops are FREEZING, so i would not enjoy that. Plus, I imagine the shop would attract bees and other stinging insects, which would not be good for me...or the customers... esmerb 5 years I have ALWAYS wanted to work in a flower shop PinkNC 5 years Who wouldn't want to be their own boss. And a flower shop doesn't sound so bad. Of course for me the flowers wouldn't look so good all the time. I am awful at keeping plants and flowers alive. You'd surely pass by my store :) unless you got into the Gothic death look. jadenirvana 5 years Yes I would love to own a flowershop. On a side note though, as a Seattleite I find Jennifer Aniston as a Seattle flower shop owner completely ludicrous casting. It irritates me how they think they can just slap a beanie on someone and they can seem like they are from Seattle. Not so people! 5 years Ha! Yea, owning a flower shop is like owning any business...it's hard work. Sure it's great to smell the flowers, that is if you can smell them over your own sweat. 5 years How can you "hate flowers"??! boredgourdless 5 years I watched the lady doing the flowers for my wedding whip up a gorgeous bouquet in minutes. Flower shop owners have a special sort of visual creativity I don't think I'll ever reach, but I admire them! Zivanod 5 years I would love to be surrounded by flowers all day. But for the reasons balubyu mentioned, I wouldn't want to own a flower shop. supercoolnat 5 years I think I would love owning a flower shop! Oh yeah, except for the fact that I'm really bad at flower arranging. And I mean really, really bad. I actually think my husband is better than me, even though he hates flowers and thinks they are a ridiclous waste of money. balubyu 5 years my mother owns her own flower shoppe and let me tell you; it's not easy and it's not dreamy. it's a lot of hard work! it's one of the only profession where you celebrate all the big 3's- birth, marriage and funeral. your hands never look pretty b/c they are cut up from chopping flowers stems and designing the floral arrangement (roses have MANY thorns), you deal with diva brides for their weddings (many brides think they know what they want, then tell you the day of the wedding it's not correct, they hate them) on top of being stressed to MAKE the flowers perfect for their wedding, funerals are difficult and part of the job description, teenagers who want cheap corsages for prom. takes lots of time to make, for little cost. i could go on and on. there are perks, but it's not dreamy. sorry to burst anyone's bubble. lol. Kimpossible 5 years When I was a teenager, one of my dream professions was to own a flower shop. I still to this day love flowers and flower arranging. bchicgrl 5 years it would be awesome to own a flower shop, I would love going to my job every day and see/smell the flowers :) 5 years Sure why not. It would great to set your own hours, not have to put up with annoying co-workers that the boss won't fire, and a heck of a lot more.
